Title: EARLY CHRISTIANS: THE INCREDIBLE ODYSSEY OF EARLY CHRISTIANITY - PARTS 1 & 2
The empire persecuted the Christians and eventually converted. The Barbarians sacked Rome, but were converted too. How did the religion of Love manage to survive? Who were their most terrible enemies: idols, lions, Jews...or heretics? How did they defend their faith? How did they propagate it? The blood of martyrs was the seed for new Christians. But after the persecutions of the Romans and the barbarian invasions came another grave danger for the new religion: heresies... They would be lethal. On the contrary, they provided the opportunity to define essential truths of Christian faith, consolidating the truths of a millennial Church.
