The Empire’s Great Enemy

Leithart observes that during “the period of peace after Valerian’s death in Persia, the church grew rapidly….Christians were increasingly integrated into all aspects of imperial society…Though only 10 percent of the empire was Christian, by the end of the third century the church was too big and well organized to be safely ignored…Roman religion had never confronted anything like Christianity (39).”
