The Martyrs Treated as criminals in the second and third centuries, the early Christians were subject to empire-wide persecution. Wayne A. Meeks. This persecution continued in the early Church as the apostle Paul writes in 1 Thess. “For you also suffered the same things from your own countrymen, just as they did from the Judeans, who killed both the Lord Jesus and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they do not please God and are contrary to all men.”.

  This practice of catechumenates was an early staple of the Christian movement and was maintained for the first three centuries of the early church system. The Romans were initially tolerant of the Christian movement, but persecution and martyrdom of Christians came with the arrival of Nero, and did not abate until the conversion of Constantine. This text is the story, from around AD, of the martyrdom of Polycarp, the Bishop of the church in Smyrna, a city in Asia Minor (modern Izmir in Turkey) devoted to Roman worship. The account is in the form of a letter from eye-witnesses to other churches in the area. It is the earliest chronicle of a martyrdom outside the New Testament.

The primitive Christians thought persecution extremely wrong in the Pagans, but practised it on one another. The first Protestants of the Church of England, blamed persecution in the Roman church, but practised it against the Puritans: these found it wrong in the Bishops, but fell into the same practice themselves both here and in New England.
