Christians

Post  Francisco Jimenez on Mon May 04, 2015 10:29 pm

Christianity was punishable by death during a few stages of the Roman empire, but pardon was available to those willing to give up their religion by offering sacrifice to the emperor or Roman gods. The offering of sacrifices became an issue and a kind of faith test. Honoring Rome's gods was considered a civic obligation and, at times, a law. But many Christians refused to break with their faith. They were often executed and then hailed by their coreligionists as martyrs.
