Candida Moss, The Myth of Persecution

It is assumed in the popular imagination that early Christians were persecuted for their beliefs.   Thousands of stories of saints who were persecuted because of their religious convictions flood Christian literature.  But were Christians persecuted historically or was this mythology created by Christians?   My guest, Dr. Candida Moss of the University of Notre Dame, speaks about this myth-making in her book:  The Myth of Persecution:  How Early Christians Invented a Story of Martyrdom.
