How much interaction do you do with experts when researching a topic? Is it mostly research done by you guys or do people help you out?
I'm interested by Sol Invictus, I was wondering about the transition from polytheistic faiths to monotheistic, how did that transition occur, did these monotheistic cults exist within the pantheon or were they a cause of conflict?
Didn't get to ask last time. Could James talk a bit about the progress of Games for Good, the EC Indie Fund, and others?
Did you hear much about the Jews in your sources about the early church? They are known to have been opponents to the church, in a religious dispute that makes the schisms look friendly. Saul of Tarsus (Paul) himself was imprisoning Christian believers before his conversion.
What do you think are the most positive things to come out of Schisms? (James mentioned a lot of the negatives on the Lies ep)
What made the battle of Milvian Bridge important, and do you think there is enough meat for a series?
I think a weird historical but possibly interesting topic (that is sadly past the 1920 mark) would be the effects of comic books and comic book superheroes such as Captain America and Superman on the war effort and the soldiers in WW2 especially in light of recent comic book news.
From my recollection of scripture, there is no reference to the Trinity or the nature of Jesus' being. So I'm wondering how these metaphysical questions became a part of the "believe this or go to hell" canon, which was obviously part of why the debates became so bitter.
I was interested in the fact that the Roman Empire prior to Constantine had so much vitriol against the Christians. I never seem to have concrete sources on why this was, the most I've heard are for taxes or because they didn't respect the Emperor.
From what I have read modalism (no trinity) seemed to start out big then trinitarianism seemed to take over. Any thoughts as to why?
How did your personal faith, let's count atheism and agnosticism, affect your perspective on the schisms and how did you keep perspective as you studied and talked about the content?
Do you have plans on covering Scandinavian history?
I'm really interested in the episode about the history of literature. And whether you'll talk about other technologies. It reminds me of the Civilization Tech Tree, which I always found a fun concept for learning the history of technologies--if only they interconnected their techs in a more plausible way! Having Extra History videos for each tech would be pretty educational, I'd say.
What continent/part of history do you wish had more writing (at the time) of so that we could know more of eg African History
Any more ideas for doing a little bit more creative or artistic storytelling like was done with Suleiman? I was a big fan of the nonlinear poetic structure
What is the greatest way we can still see the influence of these early christian schisms in the modern world? (or greatest ways...)
Apart from "not later than 1920 [but not always]", are there any historical topics you'd refuse to cover or just feel totally unable to do so?
What sort of historical games would you like to see? What sorts of angles or mechanics do you feel they're missing out on and should exploit?
Do you guys have any super weird or esoteric topic ideas you've been toying with?
Which games (apart from CK2) handle internal religious strife well, or at all?
Given how close the vote for Catherine the Great was, would you consider adding that as voting option once again?
Do you guys suggest/choose your series based on historical significance or interesting topic?
Would you consider in future, a poll to choose between famous warrior Queens like say, Boudica of England, Amina of Zaria, Nzinga of Matamba etc
