We have now reached the conclusion of this series and before we wrap up it is fitting for us to put into perspective the ground that we have covered.

Note that we are following the Jewish calendar for these events (and not the Gregorian calendar which is at times 150 years at odds with Jewish computations). For more on this issue see Part 21.

Omission

One omission from the timeline is 325AD when the Council of Nicea, called together by Constantine, formally entrenched anti-semitism into the Church of Rome's official dogma. Constantine's Sword by James Carroll is an academic treatise on this, from 325 until the present day.
