Continuing our history of the conversion of Armenia, we look at the religious and political reasons that motivate that country’s shift from paganism to Christianity. We begin our movement into the Great Persecution with a look at Diocletian’s desire to promote devotion to the Roman gods and his persecution of the Manicheans.
