Notre Dame Offers Online Course Exploring Contemporary Christian Persecution

Christians around the world continue to suffer persecution for their faith in record numbers. Following a century when more Christians were martyred than in the previous twenty centuries combined, Christians continue to be killed, tortured, exiled, and to see their property destroyed from North Korea to Nigeria, China to Egypt, and India to Indonesia.

Under Caesar's Sword: Christians in Response to Persecution is an online course that explores the plight of Christians and challenges participants to respond in solidarity as Christian disciples.

The survey assesses the attitudes of American Catholics towards this persecution and shows that they are aware of it but that they don’t think bishops are doing enough to address it.
