Persecution of Christians continued practically throughout the existence of the Roman Empire. The first organized persecution of Christians by Roman authorities began during the reign of Emperor Nero (37-68 CE).
The second wave of persecution relates to the name of Emperor Domitian (81-96 CE). Christians were then condemned under the pretext of “atheism”, that is, not making sacrifices to the gods. They were also accused of being hostile to people and of creating secret societies. The accusations were absurd. Christians have been accused of group sex orgies, ritualistic killing of children, worshiping their Master’s genitals, practicing criminal magic, and worshiping a donkey.
