. 5.  Letters between Pliny and Trajan during the second decade of the second century.  Pliny is a provincial governor and writes to the emperor Trajan for instructions on how to deal with Christians.  Trajan replies that “they are not to be sought out nor were anonymous denunciations to be acted on.  But once then have been identified and have refused to stop their illicit cult, they are to be executed.  The problem seems to be obstinacy  more than the threat of a rival cult.”
