Early Christians Go Online

The first Christians faced paganism, and today we face neo-paganism.  We believe that the virtues of the first Christians should be reflected today as well, for example, courage...  being a coherent Christian in social life.   


Although many of the early Christians were martyrs, not all of them suffered from violent religious persecution.  Many of them lived like other ordinary citizens of their day, while opposing pagan customs that offended their faith.

Both of them, the early Christians and the Modern day Christians, try to follow Christ, for their daily ordinary normal lives, and I think that by going through the lives of the early Christians, we can get something and we can live Christian lives better.

Angelo is the author of the English version of the website.  Through their efforts, anyone can find also in English biographies of the early Christians, the trials of martyrs, a chronology of the first centuries of Christianity, or the catecheses of the pope about the apostles and the early Christians.

It’s interesting to see how people respond, and appreciate the novelty.  They’ll say something to you or ask for more information.  Some people say, could you look into this more?  So we take into account these requests. 


Behind the small group of authors is a group of professors from the University of Navarra in Spain, who advise them so that the published content is consistent with the life and spirit of the early Christians.   Hundreds of interesting lives and places, only a mouseclick away for anyone with a computer.
