Ancient Rome and the Rise of Christianity

ID : 688   
« back to classes page
The historical beginnings of Christianity can be examined in the context of the various religious, cultural and political forces that shaped the Greco-Roman world in the period between Alexander the Great and the Roman Emperor Constantine the Great.  Much of this turbulent period was marked by clashes between Jews and Greeks over issues of political autonomy and religious practice.  By the end of the century most of the Mediterranean world, including Palestine, was dominated by Imperial Rome.  In the centuries that followed, Christianity was challenged by many secular and ideological forces in the Roman world, including competition from the powerful pagan mystery religions and the loyalties demanded by the state.
