TACITUS

Tacitus on Jesus & Christianity

"The founder of that sect, Christ, had been executed. His death had briefly suppressed the destructive cult, but again erupted, not only in Judaea, the birthplace of the evil, but also in Rome where shameful atrocities fester and spread."
(Tacitus, Annales xv.44)
