post Christianity destroy Greek culture Chronicle
people who are not angry about Christianity do not know Christianity Joachim Kahl, German contemporary theologian and philosopher translation Preface: early Christianity was indeed persecuted to varying degrees in the Roman Empire for various reasons, especially its own exclusivity and intolerance. However, the degree of persecution was far from being infinitely exaggerated by the church, especially the Roman Catholic Church. The most important thing of the Roman Empire is efficiency. If we want to systematically squeeze Christianity, we can say that we will kill all Christians in a very short time. At least, the list of so-called martyrs of the Catholic Church will be many times longer than now. The survival of Christianity in the Roman Empire is entirely due to the religious tolerance policy of the Roman Empire. After Christianity gained power, it can be said that the persecution of paganism has reached an inhumane level. Moreover, so far, we have not seen that Christianity has made a decent apology for the elimination of the so-called Pagan culture. The church’s unlimited exaggeration of its persecution is actually tampering with history. Today we look back on history. On the one hand, we look at history that has not been distorted by the colored glasses of Christianity. On the other hand, we also want to learn from history and understand what we should do and avoid today. The following chronicle focuses on the Greek cultural area, and events in other areas are basically not involved, so it is only a spot of the bloody history of Christianity. Even from this point, we can see that part of the answer to a question often asked by modern Christians is how Christianity can become a mainstream religion. If there were hundreds of years to “preach” like Christianity, any modern cult would also become the mainstream religion in the world. In 324, Emperor Constantine declared Christianity the only official religion of the Roman Empire, ordered the closure of the divination sanctuary of the Apollo temple in dydima and Asia Minor, tortured the pagan priests to death, expelled all the pagans from Athos mountain, and destroyed all the Greek temples there. In 326, Emperor Constantine, at the instigation of his mother Helen, destroyed the Asklepios temples in aigeai and kilikien and a large number of Aphrodite love temples in Jerusalem, aphaka, mambra, phinis and Baalbek. In 330, Emperor Constantine plundered wealth and statues in Greek pagan temples in order to decorate his new capital novaroma (Constantinople). In 335, Emperor Constantine ordered the closure of a large number of pagan temples in Asia Minor and Palestine, and crucified all magicians and fortune tellers. Neo Platonic philosopher sopatros died of martyrdom. In 341, Emperor Flavius Julius Constantius (son of Emperor Constantine) persecuted all fortune tellers and Greek cultists, and many Greek pagans were arrested or executed. A new round of large-scale pagan persecution in Constantinople in 346. The famous orator libanios was exiled as a magician. In 353 Flavius Julius Constantius decreed the death penalty for religious worshippers of any idol. In 354, the emperor issued a new order to close all pagan temples. Some temples were desecrated, turned into brothels or casinos, and pagan priests were executed. In 354, Emperor Flavius Julius Constantius issued another new decree, ordering the destruction of pagan temples and the execution of all idol worshipers. For the first time, libraries in different cities in the Empire were burned down. The first batch of lime plants appeared near the closed temple, and a large part of pagan buildings were processed into lime. In 357, Emperor Flavius Julius Constantius ordered punishment for any divination. In 359, Christians established the first death camps in skythopolis, Syria, to torture and execute pagans arrested throughout the Roman Empire. From 361 to 363, the pagan emperor Flavius Claudius iulianus announced the resurrection of pagan faith and the re emergence of religious tolerance in Constantinople on December 11, 361. 363 emperor Flavius Claudius iulianus was murdered on June 26. In 364, Emperor Flavius iovanus ordered the burning of the Antiochia library. On September 11 of the same year, the emperor ordered that all pagans who worshipped their ancestors’ gods or did divination be sentenced to death. Three other royal decrees issued by the emperor that year (issued on February 4, September 9 and December 23 respectively) ordered the confiscation of all property of pagan temples and the death penalty for those who participated in pagan religious ceremonies, including those who participated in such ceremonies in private.
on November 17, 365, the emperor issued a royal order prohibiting pagan officers from commanding Christian soldiers. In 370, Emperor valens ordered the persecution of pagans throughout the Eastern Roman Empire. In Antiochia, in addition to many pagans, former governor fiustius and priests hilarius and patricius were executed, and a large number of books were burned in many cities of the Eastern Roman Empire. All the friends of the former Emperor iulianus were excluded, the philosopher Simonides was burned alive, and another philosopher maximus was beheaded. In 372, Emperor valens ordered the governor of Asia Minor to eliminate all documents of Greek culture followers and Greek wisdom. In 373, divination was banned again. In order to belittle pagans, the concept of Pagani was introduced. In 375, Christians closed the temple of Asklepios in epidauros, Greece. In 380, Christianity became the only religion in the Roman Empire through the royal decree issued by Emperor Flavius Theodosius on February 27. He demanded that “all nations subject to my grace and generosity should maintain the religious creed obtained by the Romans through the holy Apostle Peter”, saying that all non Christians are “disgusting, heretical, stupid and blind”. In another royal decree, he called all those who did not believe in the Christian God crazy and threatened to punish all those who deviated from the church’s dogma. Milan bishop Ambrosius began to destroy all local temples. The Christian priest led a fanatical crowd to attack the Demeter temple in eleusis, trying to publicly kill the temple elders Nestorius and priscus. Nestorius, 95, closed the esoteric Church of eleusis and announced the arrival of the dark period of human spirit. On May 2, 381, Theodosius deprived all the rights of Christians returning to paganism, and libraries and temples were robbed or burned throughout the Eastern Roman Empire. On December 21, Theodosius announcedIn a new round of persecution, they were either crucified or burned alive. Cyrillus was canonized by the holy see in 1882. He was the pillar of faith. Father pillarof faith set an example. In 416, hypatius, the “Ya” and “the sword of God”, destroyed the last group of pagans in Bithynia. On December 7, Constantinople dismissed all non Christian officers, state officials and judges. On June 8, 423, Emperor Theodosius II announced that the religions of pagans are devil beliefs, and all those who adhere to pagan beliefs should be put in prison and sentenced. In 429, Athena temple in Akropolis in Athens was looted and Athenian pagans were persecuted. On November 14, 435, Emperor Theodosius II issued a new royal decree ordering the death penalty for all “heretics” and pagans in the Empire. Only Judaism was recognized as non Christianity. On January 31, 438, Emperor Theodosius II issued a new anti pagan royal decree, accusing his “idol worship” of leading to the outbreak of the plague. 440-450 Christians destroyed all monuments, shrines and temples in Athens, Olympia and other Greek cities. In 448, Emperor Theodosius II ordered all non Christian books to be burned. In 450, all the temples in aphrodisia were destroyed, all the local libraries were burned, and the city was renamed stauropolis. In 451, Emperor Theodosius II issued a new royal decree reaffirming that “idol worship” would be sentenced to death. From 457 to 491, there were sporadic pagan persecution activities in the east of the Empire. Among them, doctor Jacobus and philosopher gessius were executed, severianus, herestios, zosimos, isidorus and many others were tortured and imprisoned. The missionary Konon and his followers wiped out the last pagans on the island of Imbros in the North Aegean Sea, and the last worshippers of Zeus were killed in Cyprus. In 482-488, the desperate uprising against the emperor and the church in Asia Minor failed, and the majority of pagans were eliminated. In 486, more pagan “underground” priests were found in Egypt. They were imprisoned, displayed in public, tortured and finally executed. Baptism became a necessity for everyone in 515, as well as for those who have converted to Christianity. Anastasius, the emperor of Constantinople, ordered the slaughter of pagans in the Arab city of zoara and the destruction of the temples of the local gods theandrites. In 528, Emperor jutprada (Justinian) banned the alternative Olympic Games held in Antiochia, ordered the execution (by fire, crucifixion, feeding wild animals or nailing iron nails) of all those who did “witchcraft, divination, magic or idolatry”, and prohibited pagans (who suffered from the stupidity of the Greek blasphemy against God) from teaching. In 529, Emperor Justinian banned the Academy of Philosophy in Athens and ordered the confiscation of its property. The Crusade began in the year of the Athenian priest and the Athenian priest. In 542, Emperor Justinian chartered Johannes asiacus to Phrygia, Caria and Lydia in Asia Minor to convert pagans to Christianity. During his 35 year campaign, he built 99 churches and 12 monasteries on the site of the destroyed pagan holy land. In 546, hundreds of pagans were killed in Constantinople through Johannes asiacus. In 556, Emperor Justinian ordered the extreme religious judge amantius to search, torture and destroy the last pagans in Antiochia and burn down all private libraries. In 562, a large number of pagan Greeks in Athens, Antiochia, Palmyra and Constantinople were arrested, paraded in the streets, tortured, imprisoned and finally executed. In 578-582, Christians tortured pagan Greeks everywhere in the eastern part of the Empire and crucified them. The last pagans in Heliopolis (Baalbek) were destroyed. In 580, when the inquisitors attacked the secret Zeus temple in Antiochia, the priests committed suicide and other pagans were arrested. All those arrested, including the deputy governor anatolius, were tortured and sent to Constantinople for trial. They were sentenced to death and torn to pieces by the lion, but they were crucified because the beast had no interest. The Christian mobs then dragged their bodies down the street, further destroyed their bodies and threw them into the garbage. Pagan persecution reappeared under Emperor Mauritius in 583. In 590, Christian accusers “exposed” pagan “conspiracy” throughout the Eastern Roman Empire, setting off a new round of torture and execution. 692 penthekto church conference in Constantinople banned remnants of pagan festivals related to kalende, brumalia and Dionysos.

In 850-860, the last pagan Greeks in lakonia were forcibly baptized into Christianity by Nikon, the “Saint” of Armenia. The German version of this chronicle was compiled by German friends based on vlassis rassias’s “destroy them!” published in Athens in 2000 Organize a book.
need to defend Christianity as follows:
the personal behavior of Christians cannot represent the original intention of Christianity. They are not real Christians. The original intention of the Bible is good. Among them, killing, genocide, incest and breach of faith are only symbolic techniques. People who do not understand ancient Greek philosophy, Neo Platonism and Hebrew had better not interpret them at will. Now 2000 years have passed, don’t the most developed countries in the world still believe in God? Praise the name of the LORD with salt and light. Only by adhering to the ideal of Christ can we become the brightest blue star in the city on the top of the mountain!
the behavior of Muslim individuals cannot represent the original intention of Islam. Those with extreme thinking are not good Muslims. The original intention of Koran is good. The words and sentences of killing, robbing and oppressing women have specific backgrounds. If you don’t understand the Scriptures and notes, it’s best not to distort them at will. In the past, they have created a brilliant civilization. The richest countries in the world recite the name of Allah. Give them enough time to get better. All things are not Lord, but Allah. Every shehid can live in the land where milk and honey become a river.
the behavior of some crotch apes can not represent the original intention of Gong tragedy. They have betrayed their mentor’s idea and are left-right correction Gong tragedy. The original intention of XXX declaration is good
