The Christian Religion experienced heavy persecution in Ancient Rome. In the Great Fire of A.D. 64, a fire burned half the city. Romans blamed the fire on the Christians and they suffered massive persecution until Constantine became Emperor. Emperor Constantine took away the law that says you can’t worship what you want and converted to Christianity himself. Thusly the whole Roman Empire switched to Christianity. Achievements:
