As a fan of THoR, I looked forward to Revolutions. Although I'm enjoying your new podcast, I don't really understand why you started "Revolutions" with a chapter of English history that hardly resulted in a "revolution." Personally, I think your new podcast should have started with the American Revolution - that's a revolution!

Sorry, Benjamin, but "diokesis" may have been a term that existed before Diocletian, but only in Greece and only among Greeks. "Diocese" replaced the Latin term "Provincae"(Roman Province) per Diocletian's reorganization of the Roman empire. Maybe it's just a coincidence that his name and the Greek term are similar, but the man, the Roman man, gets the credit for the reorganization. The Romans were masters at adminstration and law, the Greeks were not (they still aren't). Anyone who simplistically and foolishly believes that Roman culture is just a rip off of Greek culture needs to be reminded that the Romans did not steal any more from the Greeks who came before them, than the Greeks stole from the Hittites who came well before them. To end, too bad Mike mispelled "persecution," but he's not perfect nor does he get paid for this nor is this his dissertation but rather a blog. Relax.

Love the map! Finally can see where Pannonia is (or was).
