Religious Troubles in the Age of Justinian I

The issues of Christology, secularism, the divine right of kings and the authority of organized religion raised during the reign of the dynamic Justinian I.

At the time of Justinian (who ruled between 527 and 565), the Christian world was divided by the Christological issue of how Christ's nature should be understood. Either Christ had two separate (divine and human) natures (as the Pope and the West believed) or he had one single nature which combined these two elements.
