Title: CHRISTIANITY: THE FIRST THOUSAND YEARS- CHURCH AND EMPIRE
For 300 years, Christians were the target of violence and hatred in the Roman Empire. That changed overnight when the Emperor Constantine saw a vision of Jesus in a dream; the religion had gained its single most important convert. The clear evidence that Christianity was growing in power and influence leads many to question whether Constantine's conversion was genuine or a savvy political move. From the birth of the monastic movement to the shaping of the New Testament, Church And Empire traces the sweeping changes that eventually led to the triumph of the religion in the Western world, and the decline of the Roman Empire.
