5 Sedes of the Pentarchy

400 years of the 2nd/6 periods of Substantial Time-identity is the Period of the Sedes of the Pentarchy system covering the period of time of AD 401 through to AD 800.

The Period of the Sedes of the Pentarchy began when Christianity was declared the state religion of the Roman Empire and ended with the enthronement of Charlemagne in AD 800. The Period of the Sedes of the Pentarchy is the substantial parallel to the 400-year Period of Judges, and its purpose was to restore that earlier period through parallel indemnity conditions.[1]

Christians were building a spiritual kingdom under the leadership of Jesus, who stood upon the spiritual foundation for the Messiah. Their loyalty transcended national barriers, for they were serving the resurrected Jesus as the King of Kings. Therefore, the spiritual kingdom of Jesus was not confined to any one nation, but expanded to the far-flung corners of the globe.[1]

Christian society in the Period of the Sedes of the Pentarchy was a feudalistic society under local authorities.

The Period of the Sedes of the Pentarchy in the Christian era began after the liberation of Christianity after the Period of Persecution by the Roman Empire, the satanic world. Christians spread the Gospel to the Germanic peoples, many of whom had migrated to Western Europe in the fourth century to escape the invading Huns. In their new land of Western Europe, God raised up the Germanic tribes as a new chosen people and established an early form of feudal society, which later matured into the feudalism of the Middle Ages.[2]

In the Period of the Sedes of the Pentarchy, the Christians were supposed to exalt the Church, which was the image of the Messiah, and follow the directions of its bishops and monastic leaders. The Church was the object for the condition to determine who would have the position of Abel. However, they became influenced by the religion and culture of the pagan Germanic tribes, which brought great confusion to the Christian faith.[2]

The Period of the Sedes of the Pentarchy has been called Christian Churches under the Patriarchal System according to the 2nd edition of the Divine Principle in 1996 and the Period of Regional Church Leadership according to the 1st edition of the Divine Principle in 1973.

The Period of the Sedes of the Pentarchy came to a close, the missions of these leaders were apportioned to the offices of monastic leaders corresponding to the prophets, the pope corresponding to the high priest, and the emperor, who ruled the people. They were responsible to guide the Second Israel to accomplish the goal of the providence of restoration. The Christian Church was divided into the 5 patriarchates or sedes of Jerusalem, Antioch, Alexandria, Constantinople and Rome, with Rome dominant in the West.[3]

List of Frankish Kings

The Franks were originally led by dukes (military leaders, see Roman Empire Standard Guideline) and reguli (petty kings).

Salian and Merovingian Franks

The Salian Franks, also called the Salians (Latin: Salii, Greek: Salioi), were the western subgroup of the early Franks who first appear in the historical records in the third century. At that time they lived between the Rhine and the IJssel in the modern day Dutch region of the Veluwe,[5] Gelderland. Salii is derived out of the name of the IJssel (Isala) river, formerly called Hisloa or Hisla, and in ancient times Sala, the Salians' original residence. Today this area is called Salland, in the west and north of the present Dutch province of Overijssel. Historically he Salian Franks were called the Sicambri or Sugambri while the Romans were often called "Trojans".

The Salians

Neustria (נאסתריא) Fifth Century AD
  • Childeric I (כילד-הריח) son of Merovech, King at Tournai, reigned during AD 458AD 481,
  • Clovis I (Latin: Chlodovechus, כלודוך; reconstructed Frankish: *Hlodowig, כלודוך) son of Childeric I, King at Tournai reigned during AD 481AD 511, later united most of the Franks and Roman Gaul,
Clovis's Conquests 481-511

Clovis I united all the Frankish petty kingdoms as well as most of Roman Gaul under his rule, conquering the Domain of Soissons of the Roman general Syagrius as well as the Visigothic Kingdom of Toulouse. He took his seat at Paris, which along with Soissons, Reims, Metz, and Orléans became the chief residences. Upon his death, the kingdom was split among his four sons.

Clovis I (AD 466-AD 511) is the historical parallel figure to the Biblical Joshua (BC AYN 1540-BC AYN 1431) after Augustine of Hippo (AD 354-AD 430); the historical figure of the Biblical Moses (Moshe: משה), where Moses (Moshe) was born in BC AYN 1579; 350 years after Abraham's offering in BC 1928 and the Exodus in BC AYN 1499 under the leadership of Moshe 430 years after the same offering in BC AYN 1928 paralleling the death of Augustine in AD 430.

Merovingian Kings of the Franks

The Salian Merovingians rose to dominance among the Franks and conquered most of Roman Gaul. They also conquered the Visigoths in 507. The sons of Clovis conquered the Burgundians and Alamanni.

Chlothar I eventually (AD 558-AD 561) inherited all of the Frankish kingdoms after the deaths of his brothers or their successors. After his own death, the kingdom was once again split among his four sons,

Chlothar II defeated Brunhilda and her grandson, reunifying the kingdom. However, in AD 623, in order to appease particularistic forces and also to secure the borders, he gave the Austrasians his young son as their own king. His son and successor, Dagobert I, emulated this move by appointing a sub-king for Aquitaine, with a seat at Toulouse, in AD 629 and Austrasia in AD 634.

Theuderic III was recognized as king of all the Franks in AD 679. From then on, the kingdom of the Franks can be treated as a unity again for all but a very brief period of civil war. This is the period of the idle kings who were increasingly overshadowed by their mayors of the palace.

Real power, however, still remained with the Mayor of the Palace, Pippin of Herstal, who died in AD 714. Pippin's death occasioned open conflict between his heirs and the Neustrian nobles who elected the mayors of the palace.

Carolingian Kings of the Franks

The Carolingians were initially mayors of the palace under the Merovingian kings, first in Austrasia and later in Neustria and Burgundy. In 687, Pippin of Heristal took the title Duke and Prince of the Franks (dux et princeps Francorum) after his conquest of Neustria in at the Battle of Tertry, which was cited by contemporary chroniclers as the beginning of Pippin's reign.
