Church History 400 - 950

|It is my opinon that if you are a Christian, it is every bit as important to know your church history as it is to know your national history. If you aren't a Christian, Christianity is still a very major part of the history of Western Civilization (and Eastern Civilization, more recently), so it behooves you to understand it as well.|
Church history isn't always pretty. I wish it were - it would certainly be more representative of Christ if it were! But it helps to know where the church went wrong and where it went right so that we don't repeat mistakes and we can learn from success.
In my previous two quizzes on Church History, I covered A.D. 33 to A.D. 400. It's been a while, though, so this time I'm starting at A.D. 350 and going through 950.
Controversies slowed down after the first 350 years or so, but they by no means disappear during the Dark and Early Middle Ages.
So - let's see what you know!
BTW, the graphic is of a shamrock, which St. Patrick reportedly used to explain the Trinity (one plant, 3 lobes, inseparable, yet separate). The Trinity was controversial in some quarters of the church during the latter part of the Imperial Roman period and the first part of the Dark Ages.
