    According the the greek pagan historian, I think Zosimus, a lot of slaves took refuge in Barbarian lands, christians also told to barbarian hordes the places pagans hide their treasures.

    No, it didn't even really end medieval slavery. The Church may have thought it was a "bad look" to own Christian slaves, but it didn't really do anything about it.

    Yes and no. They abolished the rights and place of the citizen and enforced a form of pseudo-slavery known as serfdom.

        It's just more economical to get some human farm tools alongsides your new farm. Besides you can pressgang their sons into dying for your wars and kill them if they get uppity.

      How so?
      Christianity undermined the concept of citizenship?

    Absolutely NOT! Slavery wasn't abolished by the Church, and their "scriptures" say s it is acceptable to the point of telling Christian slaves to obey their masters.

    no, the end of continuous expansive wars and the collapse of the trade routes fostered by Roman power made the slave trade economically inefficient compared to using soft cultural power and the image of a protective guardian to coerce people to work for you of their own free will

      Any source where I can read more about this?

      When they could no longer import slaves they enslaved themselves. The end of slavery precipitated serfdom

    The Byzantines had slaves and even christian slaves, slaves were mostly domestic workers but were also used for the mines in Anatolia.

    The Frankish empire also had domestic slaves.

    The Vikings main income were slaves that were transported from either Ireland or Britain to the richer lands in continenental northern europe.

    Slavery of christians was banned by some decrees aproved by the pop during the early Renaisance because the slave trade in the Mediterranean was becoming too big. Most notably the Knights of St. John engaged in the slave trade and their participation was very extensive in capturing slaves for the galleys and Malta was the center of the Mediterranean slave trade as it was close to both N.Africa and the Italia peninsula.

    Interesting no one in this thread is actually posting what laws abolished slavery, ended serfdom, compelled the freedom of slaves or discusses the motives of governments which implemented such laws

      What did you expect? No such thing happened any time close to OPs question. There was no top down movement to end servitude until economic situations changed dramatically with machinery multiplying the output of human labor many times over.
