Description: When Theodosius was appointed to clean up the mess in the eastern part of the Roman Empire, he was served with a tall order. The Goths were rampaging through the countryside and who could blame them the way they were treated?

Orthodox Catholic Trinitarian Christianity was Theodosius’ choice and he was going to use all of his power to push all other forms of the religion out of the picture.

Theodosius was the new sheriff in town and nothing was going to be the same after.
