  • Jeremiah 51:24-25 “And I will render unto Babylon and to all the inhabitants of Chaldea all their evil that they have done in Zion in your sight, saith the LORD. Behold, I am against thee, O destroying mountain, saith the LORD, which destroyest all the earth: and I will stretch out mine hand upon thee, and roll thee down from the rocks, and will make thee a burnt mountain. And they shall not take of thee a stone for a corner, nor a stone for foundations; but thou shalt be desolate for ever, saith the LORD.”Zechariah 9:4 “Behold, the Lord will cast her out, and he will smite her power in the sea; and she shall be devoured with fire.”

    9. 9. “Genseric … was…king of the Vandalsettlers in Spain, and left, inconjunction with his brotherGontharis or Gonderic, in possessionof the throne. His life divides itselfinto two parts: 1st, the conquest ofAfrica (A. D. 429—439); 2nd, thenaval attacks on the empire itself (A.D. 439—477).” (Smith, 1870, p. 244)
    10. 10. “Genseric occupied sixteen years in preparations tosack Rome, … He devoted all the energy of hisnature to construct a navy — not merely onecapable of making raids upon the rebellious townsto the west of him, but one so great as to ensurefor him the mastery…” (Bigelow, 1918, p. 71)
    11. 11. “SACK OF ROME BY GENSERIC (A.D. 455). — TheVandal chief failed not to seize such a goldenopportunity. With a large fleet he crossed theMediterranean sailed up the Tiber and enteredRome.

The Vandals loaded their ships withornaments of gold and silver…” (Vuibert, 1886,p. 615)
    12. 12. “Twice the empire endeavoured torevenge itself, and twice it failed. The firstwas the attempt of the Western emperorMajorian (A. D. 457), whose fleet wasdestroyed in the bay of Carthagena. Thesecond was the expedition sent by theEastern emperor Leo, under thecommand of Heraclius, Marcellinus, andBantiscus (A. D. 468), which was alsobaffled by the burning of the fleet offBona.” (Smith, 1870, p. 244)
    13. 13. “But Genseric did not wait for theRoman fleet to come to attack him inhis capital. When he got word that itwas in the Bay of Carthagena, he sailedthere with a fleet of his own and in asingle day burned or sank nearly all theRoman ships…” (Haaren, n.d., ¶3)
    14. 14. Papacy Continues to Gain More Influence During the Siege of GensericIn the campaigns of Genseric we see thepapacy being involved in national affairs.Pope Leo entreated with Genseric to sparethe lives of the people in the city, to whichGenseric agreed. However, when the citywas sacked, Genseric did not abide by theagreement. (Ridpath, 1885)“The heads of the Catholic community met him in state and inreturn for this and other services, the Vandals promised to spareall Christian sanctuaries....” (Bigelow, 1918, p. 79)
    15. 15. Papacy Continues to Gain More Influence During the Siege of Genseric“There is stronger evidence to the fact that three yearslater, Leo saved Rome from destruction by hisintercession with an enemy.Genseric, king of the Vandals, in Africa … advanced tothe neighborhood of Rome with a fleet and army, andcompelled an immediate surrender. Leo could not savethe city from plunder; but he successfully pleaded withthe barbarian king to secure it from the horrors ofmassacre and fire…”(Riddle, 1856, p. 182)
    16. 16. Papacy Continues to Gain More Influence During the Siege of Genseric“On the third day after the tumult Genseric boldly advancedfrom the port of Ostia to the gates of the defenceless city.Instead of a sally of the Roman youth there issued from thegates an unarmed and venerable procession of the bishop atthe head of his clergy. The fearless spirit of Leo, his authorityand eloquence, again mitigated the fierceness of a barbarianconqueror: the king of the Vandals promised to spare theunresisting multitude, to protect the buildings from fire, and toexempt the captives from torture; and…the mediation of Leowas glorious to himself and in some degree beneficial to hiscountry.” (Gibbon & Smith, 1857, p. 266 & 267)
    17. 17. Papacy Continues to Gain More Influence During the Siege of Genseric“Three years later, Rome was again attacked, this timeby the Vandal Genseric, who indeed plundered Rome,but at Leos persuasion, agreed not to violate theinhabitants. Leo ministered to the stricken populaceand worked to rebuild the city and its churches…Leodied in Rome on November 10, 461. His legacyadvanced the influence of the papacy to unprecedentedheights. In a time of great disorder, he forged anenergetic central authority which affected the papacyfor centuries to come.” (Saint Leo the Great, n.d., ¶13).
    18. 18. Papacy Continues to Gain More Influence During the Siege of Genseric“…*Pope+ Leo had …really effected some alleviation of the distresseswhich had fallen upon the city. The fact that he, and he alone, at such acrisis, had availed to effect anything, that he had stood forth a secondtime as the shield of Rome could not but greatly enhance the prestigewhich he had gained three years before. At this fateful moment the Popecould hardly be regarded as otherwise than by far the most importantpersonage in Rome and in Italy... Comparatively speaking, at all events,the Church had once more abode in strength when every other socialinstitution had been shaken to its base. The shadowy forms of severalpuppet emperors flit quickly by; but the Supreme Pontiff sits firm in St.Peters chair, unfaltering and unappalled, unquestionably the foremostman in Rome.” (Beet, 1910, p. 273)
    19. 19. “And the third angel sounded, and there fell agreat star from heaven, burning as it were alamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers,and upon the fountains of waters; And the nameof the star is called Wormwood: and the thirdpart of the waters became wormwood; andmany men died of the waters, because theywere made bitter.” (Revelation 8:10, 11)

Attila became known as ‘the scourgeof God’ …Attila and his Huns made the Alpinelake and river country and the valleys of the Poall desolate…” (Hemenway, 2007, p. 51)
    27. 27. "It is said particularly that the effect would be on therivers and on the fountains of waters. If this has aliteral application… then we may suppose that thisrefers to those portions of the empire that aboundedin rivers and streams, and more particularly those inwhich the rivers and streams had their origin for theeffect was permanently in the fountains of waters. Asa matter of fact, the principal operations of Attila werein the regions of the Alps, and on the portions of theempire whence the rivers flow down into Italy…”(Barnes, 1859, p. 235)

I will scatter them also among theheathen, whom neither they nor their fathers haveknown: and I will send a sword after them, till I haveconsumed them.”
    30. 30. “The absinthe plant –Wormwood—grows freely in theAlps and is bitter and is associated with gall in scripture(c.p. Deut. 29:18). Wormwood (Aspinthos) is the nameof a river in the Illyrian region ruled by Attila.”(Hemenway, 2007, p. 51)
    31. 31. “Attila burnt cities, massacred and enslaved inhabitantsand generally caused despair, famine, and bitterness.The Huns devastated the inhabitants of the ItalianAlps—the source of rivers, causing pollution and diseasefor those who drank.” (Hemenway, 2007, p. 51)
    32. 32. “The Latin traditions of Gaul gave him the nameof the Scourge of God and supposed that hegloried in it... But in the desolations of Attila theempire had learned a new experience of itshelplessness.” (Church, 1907, p. 22)
    33. 33. “The Illyrian frontier was covered by a line of castlesand fortresses…But these slight obstacles were instantlyswept away by the inundation of the Huns. They,destroyed, with fire and sword …. The whole breadth ofEurope, as it extends above five hundred miles from theEuxine to the Hadriatic, was at once invaded, andoccupied, and desolated, by the myriads of barbarianswhom Attila led into the field.” (Gibbon, 1782, Chapter34)
    34. 34. “In 451, having suffered a setback on the Plains ofChalons, by the allied Romans and Visigoths, Attilaturned his attention to Italy.

    36. 36. Papacy is Now a Political and Social Figure More Important than the Emperors and Political Figures of Rome“Attila advanced towards Rome.

But Attilas army was suffering fromexhaustion and disease and he yielded at least for thetime to the supplications and offers of the Romanambassadors one of whom was the great Pope Leo.”(Church, 1907, 22)
    37. 37. Papacy is Now a Political and Social Figure More Important than the Emperors and Political Figures of RomeAttila was hesitant to sack Rome because ofsuperstition, but was contemplating it when a Romanembassy was sent to meet him in his camp. Pope Leowas a part of the Roman embassy who were sent onbehalf of “The Emperor and the Senate and People ofRome” Leo proved himself a successful ambassadorand negotiated peace…. (Hodgkin, 1892)
    38. 38. Papacy is Now a Political and Social Figure More Important than the Emperors and Political Figures of Rome“…it is little open to question that, from the first, Leo was thereal hero of the day. To him, more than to any other, at thiscrisis, the Roman Emperor, if not the people also, looked for aid;and, as they congratulated themselves, had not looked in vain.His personal prestige and that of his Apostolic Chair were, bothalike, immeasurably enhanced thereby. In the person of Leo, asin that of none of his predecessors, the Head of the RomanChurch became a personage of the first importance in the State,more than the peer of senators and military chiefs—thebuttress of a throne and the preserver of the social fabric.”(Beet, 1910, p. 265)
    39. 39. Papacy is Now a Political and Social Figure More Important than the Emperors and Political Figures of Rome“The renown and the gratitude which Leo I earned by thisinterposition placed the Papal Chair many steps higher in theestimation both of Rome and of the world. In the dark dayswhich were coming the senate and people of Rome were notlikely to forget that when the successor of Caesar had beenproved useless the successor of Peter had been a verypresent help. And thus it is no paradox to say that indirectly theking of the Huns contributed more perhaps than any otherhistorical personage towards the creation of that mighty factorin the politics of mediaeval Italy the Pope King of Rome.”(Hodgkin, 1892, p. 161)
