‘They are not just victims’: new film on the resilience of persecuted Christians

caesarsswordA major new documentary on the plight of persecuted Christians in Turkey, India and elsewhere highlights the “creative strategies Christians employ as they struggle to survive, build alliances and resist their persecutors”.

The film, ‘Under Caesar’s Sword’, produced jointly by the US University of Notre Dame and the Religious Freedom Institute takes an in-depth look at how persecuted communities respond to repression.

“What is remarkable about persecuted Christians is their resilience. They are not just victims. Understanding this is the key to being in solidarity with them,” said Daniel Philpott, professor of political science at the University of Notre Dame and co-director of the Under Caesar’s Sword project.

The documentary can be viewed at no cost along with a discussion guide for group study.
