CE: Martyrs of Ancient Rome

My latest on Catholic Exchange.
Bishops being martyred under Trajan, St. Ignatius fighting heresy in the early Church, the persecutions in Lyons, St. Justin using arguments of philosophy to persuade the Emperor Aurelius to validate Christianity — these are all events worth further study in our homeschools. The Saints impact history in a way that is still felt today and we would be remiss not to share their stories with our children.

If you have a favorite book or resource for the study of Ancient Rome, make sure to leave a comment.
