Coming Out Christian in the Roman World
- How the Followers of Jesus Made a Place in Caesar's Empire
- By: Douglas Boin
- Narrated by: Neil Hellegers
- Length: 6 hrs and 38 mins
The supposed collapse of Roman civilization is still lamented more than 1,500 years later - and intertwined with this idea is the notion that a fledgling religion, Christianity, went from a persecuted fringe movement to an irresistible force that toppled the empire. The intolerant zeal of Christians, wrote Edward Gibbon, swept Rome's old gods away, and with them the structures that sustained Roman society. Not so, argues Douglas Boin.
Not quite what I was hoping for
