Charles Martel defeated the Moors at the Battle of Tours, halted their advance into Europe and became the most powerful man in Western Europe. The Eastern church and Western church split over the iconoclasm controversy. The Moors invaded the Iberian Peninsula, established a Caliphate, but sparked the Christian Reconquista to retake the lands. The Abbasid Caliphate, based in the East, revolted and took power from the Umayyad Caliphate. Saint Boniface went into Germany and felled the Thor’s Oak, converting many of the Germans to Christianity. I forgot everything over the weekend Mr. Morrow
