Pagans and Christians

Pagans and Christians
Robin Lane Fox

An authoritative work on an important subject – the infiltration and conversion of the pagan world by Christianity in the two centuries leading up to Constantine – Fox’s book is a dense read that sometimes gets lost in the details but nevertheless helps the reader to understand the cultural context for this unlikely historical development. How and why such a transformation happened, and whether it was a good or bad thing, remain matters open for debate.
