I read on wikipedia that when Roman Empire embraced Christianity they were forcing people to become Christians. During the Saxons war people were forcefully Roman Catholicized by the Franks.
Copyed from wikipedia:
Lithuania was not the first country that fell victim to a campaign of lethal military force, for the purpose of forced conversion to Christianity. Three entire European nationalities became victims of genocide because they refused to become Christians:“…the Vandals, Ostogoths, and Heruli. The last three were destroyed by the Pope of Rome because they refused to become Christian. The armies of Emperor Justinian, in cooperation with the Pope, thrust the Ostrogoths out of the city of Rome. They have become extinct
I mean i just to thought people converted to Christianity because they kinda knew that it is the right religion, i believe God told them somehow. That Europe willingly converted to Christianity but know i see that Romans didn’t truly embrace Christiaity, neither did Lithuanians or Saxons or many others, many were forced to embrace it.
Also some extra question if anyone knows, how many Jews did convert to Christianity after Jesus’s death? Were the new converts mostly Gentiles? If so, why? I also hear Jews were forced to become Christians. Is it true?
