The Greco-Roman Antiquity began to recognise Christianity as a real problem only after the Jews’ attacks against it. Dominant in every way, Rome would become a tormentor for centuries, drowning a long period of human history in rivers of Christian martyrdom. Early Christianity had to face not only physical annihilation but also intellectual оstracism, systematically carried out by the pagan elite – rhetors and philosophers.
This paper examines the arguments that Marcus Cornelius Fronto and Celsus brought against Christianity as an important component in the palette of Anti-Christian arguments in the second century.
