Rating: 2, High!

Description: The Roman persecution of Christians began during the reign of Nero and persisted until Christianity was recognized as a legitimate religion by the Emperor Constantine 249 years later.

Christians were denounced as enemies of men and the gods and therefore subject to the tortures. Standards 6.7.7
