Abstract

Christianity is now one of the major world religions with millions of followers. There was a time, however, when this was not so. Between the so-called Neronian Persecution of 64 CE until the Edict of Milan of 313 CE, Christians suffered sporadic persecution from various groups including the Jewish community, the Roman authorities and pagan civilians. This thesis attempts to discover why the Christians were distrusted, ridiculed and sometimes killed. It also examines the Constantinian Revolution, when the emperor Constantine ended the persecutions, legalized Christianity and initiated a new relationship between church and state.
