The church sort of moved into the gap left by the Roman Empire. It was, or tried to be, a Universal (that’s what Catholic means) institution.

I’m not real sure of your dates, so I’ll include a link to an essay on Church History from the New Advent Catholic Encyclopedia. It’s a good source generally on Church movements, people and dogma. The first part of the essay is more about the study of Church History, scroll down a ways to find dates and names associated with the three periods in Church History this article describes.
