A Quote by Publius Cornelius Tacitus on christianity, day, death, dogs, and sports

Following Emporer Nero's command, "Let the Christians be exterminated!:" . . . they [the Christians] were made the subjects of sport; they were covered with the hides of wild beasts and worried to death by dogs, or nailed to crosses or set fire to, and when the day waned, burned to serve for the evening lights.

Publius Cornelius Tacitus (c.55 - c.120 AD)
