EUROPE: CATASTROPHE AND REVIVAL - The Great Error of the Middle Ages - Part 5
Paul W Kroll

During the Middle Ages, Europeans expected the appearance of Antichrist. And this expectation filled them with terror. Antichrist was thought to be a great antagonist of Christ and was expected to spread universal evil across the earth. Only one power, Europeans thought, was holding back Antichrist: the Holy Roman Empire. It was God, not men, who called Germany to the imperial office of the revived Roman Empire - at least this was the claim of Jordan of Osnabrueck. During the reign of Rudolph of Habsburg (1273-1291), Jordan of Osnabrueck wrote a book about the "translation" of the old Roman Empire to the care of Germany. The new empire was the Holy Roman Empire of the German nation. Jordan was not the only one to advance this idea; it was common in the Middle Ages. This West European empire, originally begun by the Franks under Charlemagne, was considered an offshoot of the old Roman Empire.
