In the next few episodes, we are going to explore several individual stories which will all lead us into the Second Ecumenical Council held in Constantinople in 381AD. In this episode, we will focus in on a schism that happened in the city of Antioch. Two rival camps would form around two different Orthodox Trinitarian Bishops. There will be plenty of meddling in this situation by Popes, Patriarchs and Emperors and not everyone will have the best interest of the people of Antioch in mind.
