The story of Christianity’s rise to prominence is a remarkable one. The story of its progression from a tiny, persecuted religion to the established religion in the medieval West is nothing short of impressive.

It's the persecution that served as the impetus for the spread of the Christian gospel message. Much of what is known about that time comes from the New Testament Bible, the Book of Acts. Josephus, a prominent Jewish historian and non-believers, writings validate much of the accounts of the persecutions of the early followers of Christianity.

Christians were first, and horribly, targeted for persecution as a group by the emperor Nero in 64 AD. A colossal fire broke out at Rome, and destroyed much of the city. Rumors abounded that Nero himself was responsible.

To divert attention from the rumors, Nero ordered that Christians were the cause of the fire and should be rounded up and killed. Some were torn apart by dogs, others burnt alive as human torches. Over the next hundred years or so, Christians were sporadically persecuted. By the mid-3rd century emperors initiated intensive persecutions.

The Colosseum in Rome is designated as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. The Colosseum or Flavian Amphitheater is one of the most well-known of the ancient Roman structures because so much of it remains. Located just east of the Roman Forum, the massive all-stone amphitheater known as the Colosseum was commissioned around 70-72 AD by Emperor Vespasian of the Flavian Dynasty as a gift to the Roman people. In 80 AD Vespasian’s son Titus opened the Colosseum, with 100 days of games, including gladiatorial combats and with the slaughter of 5000 sacrificial animals.

After 4 centuries of active use, the magnificent arena fell into neglect. Lightning damaged the amphitheater, but later emperors repaired and maintained it until the games were ended in the 6th century. Up until the 18th century it was used as a source of building materials and by the 20th century, a combination of weather, natural disasters, neglect and vandalism had destroyed nearly two-thirds of the original Colosseum, including all the arena’s marble seats and its decorative elements.

Restoration efforts began in the 1990s, and have proceeded over the years. The amphitheater remains a popular tourist destination, as well as an iconic symbol of Rome and its long, tumultuous history.
