Tertullian: “Public hatred asks but one thing”

17 June 2016



“If the Tiber floods the city, or if the Nile refuses to rise, or if the sky withholds its rain, if there is an earthquake, a famine, a pestilence, at once the cry is raised: ‘Christians to the lion!’ … Public hatred asks but one thing, not the investigation of the crimes charged, but simply the confession of the Christian name.”
