ST 71 The Church and Bank

In today’s episode, Sidetrack Episode 71, Today I have a special episode that was previously released as special bonus episode on Patreon, since I am no longer on Patreon, I wanted to release it as a thank you to everyone for listening. This episode is titled The Church and Bank. I explore the development of banking during the middle ages and how the Church was involved in the movement of money and resources throughout Europe. The Popes of Rome had and have a great deal of resources at hand and how they managed those resources is fascinating and important to the development of the Western economy throughout history.
