  • Christianity began in the Jewish religion. Jesus Christ was the new prophet. He was called by the followers Christ (the chosen one of god) The jews did not like this so they brought him to court and asked Roman governor, Pontius Pilate, to execute him. The governor had no reason to crucify Jesus but because of the pressure and the fear of riot, he had not choice but to do so. Christianity attracted people because they thought that if they followed the religion, they would continue to live after they die. This religion gives love and hope to the woman, the poor and even the people society has rejected.

  • A roman citizen named Paul became a Christian and travelled to 3 cities in asia to teach the people about Christianity. He taught them that there is only one God. The fact that the Christian followers wouldn’t make any offerings to the Roman Gods made the Emperor Trajan upset. Emperor Trajan said that Christians should be punished unless they prove that they are not Christians by worshipping the Roman gods.



    The christians wouldn’t worship the roman god and that means not showing royalty to the empire

  • Many Romans and Parthians hated the Christians and sometimes the Christians were killed. Christians were torn apart by dogs. Some were fixed up on crosses, or burned alive to light up the night. For safety, some Christians meet in secret in underground caves. This made the Roman government more suspicious because they thought that the Christians were plotting something against the government. The Druids were wiped out and the jews were spared prosecution but the Christian continued to grow until the the time of the Christian Roman Emperor. After that Christianity became the religion of the Empire.

  • Constantine was a the First Roman Emperor to become a Christian. There was a big civil war because Constantine was declared emperor after his fathers, Constantius, death.
    Before the night of his war, a cross appeared in the sky and he heard the words “Under this sign you will win” He thought that if he and his soldiers have a cross on their shields, they would win. So everyone painted the cross on their shields and actually won the battle. Since he was so impressed with the powers of the gods, he became a Christian. After the victory, he put up a triumphal arch to remind his people of the victory.
