45. "The claim at the heart of this book has been carefully researched by several generations of scholars and is orthodox in academic circles, if not beyond.

They were, like other convicts, sometimes tortured and executed in horrible ways. They seem to have been regarded by many Romans with distaste as a particularly silly superstition. But Christian stories of thousands of individual and mass martyrdoms over centuries have at best a limited basis in historical fact, and in many cases are sheer fiction."
