Archaeology news: 1,700-year-old Cyprus mosaic criticises Christianity, researcher claims

In the year 313 AD the Roman Emperor Constantine issued the Edict of Milan, which accepted Christianity.

And just 10 years later, the faith began to take a more concrete shape with uniform doctrine adopted during the First Council of Nicaea.

Finally, Nicene Christianity was officially adopted as the faith of the Roman Empire in the year 380 AD.

But not everyone was accepting of the new faith during these times, as demonstrated by the Nea Paphos mosaic.

Dr Olszewski said: “This mosaic is an illustrated anti-Christian polemic in a period of growing domination of the followers of the Christian faith.”
