This first episode of a two part series explores the economic, social and political reforms of Diocletian. It shows that though extremely controversial Diocletian was in fact a true reformer.
Diocletian’s economic policies set the Roman Empire and Western Europe on the road to feudalism and economic decline.
It discusses his policies, the political and economic instability he found himself in when becoming Emperor while also discussing what worked, what didn't and the effects his policies and reforms had on the Roman Empire, the Roman People and early Christianity.
What I also enjoyed is that before diving into Diocletian and his reforms Steve from The History of the Papacy Podcast gives you a brief overview of modern economics to better help you understand not just economics but also how certain aspects of modern economics can easily relate to the economic practices of the ancient world.
