The “myth” of Christian persecution

Candida Moss’ new book “The Myth of Persecution: How Early Christians Invented a Story of Martyrdom” addresses the exaggeration of claims of martyrdom in the early church, and the effect it has in modern circles concerning the way Christianity is taught and perceived.

Religion News Service, in an article by Lauren Markoe, interviews Moss about “the travails of early Christians, and how they are misappropriated in the public sphere today”.

Candida Moss is professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at the University of Notre Dame.
