Roman Emperor Nero's Bronze Prutahs which circulated in Judaea were minted in his name by Nero's appointed governor, Porcius Festus (58-62 CE). These two men figure prominently in Christian history. Festus is infamous for giving the Apostle Paul his final hearing before deporting him to Rome where Paul was later executed by Nero's order. Nero is another story.

Nero's rule, from 54 to 68 CE, is often associated with tyranny and extravagance...

Herod I, the Great, was the most important member of the Herodian royal dynasty, which had its origins in the Arabic Edomite region of ancient Palestine. Members of this clan held powerful positions in the Holy Land for nearly two centuries--during a period in Judeo-Christian history that would be viewed by later historians as having profound impacts on the course of human history. Herod I was in the thick of these events. He was King of the region from 37 BCE until his death in 4 BCE...

With the exception of Judas of Iscariot, no figure in the Christian Gospels is as antithetical to the teachings of Jesus as King Herod. “Herod” is not just one person; the Bible uses the name interchangeably to indicate any of the kings who ruled the Holy Land from 40 BC to 92 AD. The Herods were all Roman client kings—Herod I was installed in Judaea by his friend Mark Antony—and their supporters, known in the Bible as the Herodians, were loyal to Rome above all...

When we think of ancient Rome, we think first of the gladiators. These professional fighters delighted frenzied crowds in the Coliseum, doing battle with wild animals, with condemned criminals, and with one another, sometimes fighting to the death. The archetype of the gladiator has persisted for more than two thousand years, to the present day.

Derived from funeral rites practiced by the Etruscans in the 8th century BCE, Roman gladiatorial contests were not for the faint of hear—the...

In the 300 years between the death of Jesus and the death of Constantine the Great, Christianity went from being the nascent belief system of a few dozen disciples to the official religion of the mighty Roman Empire. Its meteoric rise is nothing short of miraculous. This remarkable collection tells the story in coins.

Gallienus issued the Edict of Toleration, making Christianity legal in the Empire for thefirst time. Claudius II Gothicus reversed this decision, persecuting Christians in t...
