ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the letter written by Pliny the younger, Governor of Bithyenia, to the emperor Trajan, describing his troubles in making witness talk. This letter was written 40 years after the death of Saint Paul in the first century A.D. This letter is one of the earliest authentic references to "the sect of Christians." He writes that since he has never been presented at any trials concerning those who profess Christianity, he is unacquainted not only with the nature of their crimes, or the measure of their punishment, but how far it is proper to enter into an examination concerning them.
