CNN series: "Pope: The Most Powerful Man in History"

Sunday night, CNN premiered its new series: “Pope: The MostPowerful Man in History”. 

The one hour pilot present Pope Frances as having to soften the absolutism of Catholic doctrine in the past.

It also gave a history of late Rome, as the empire split into pieces with a Greek Orthodox church several hundred years after Christ, after the promotion of Christianity by Constantine the Great. The standard of living in Rome itself declined.
The documentary also depicts the Crusades, where Muslim communities in Jerusalem and the middle East were sacked, often with multiple home invasions, helping set up a motive for radical Islam today.
