“Day after day, indeed, you groan over the increasing number of the Christians. Your constant cry is, that the state is beset (by us); that Christians are in your fields, in your camps, in your islands. You grieve over it as a calamity, that each sex, every age – in short, every rank – is passing over from you to us; yet you do not even after this set your minds upon reflecting whether there be not here some latent good.” Tertullian, To the Nations, 1, ANF 3:109
