The Valerian Persecution examines the conflict between Christianity and Rome in light of scholarship which revealed its deep roots in state policy and administration, rather than hatred of a people. The text illuminates the magnitude of the challenges early Christians faced in spreading doctrines with the power to revolutionize Rome and the world. Healy focuses on the persecution Christians endured under Emperor Valerian.
