Almost Every Bible Was Destroyed

In 303, Emperor Diocletian inaugurated the most terrific onslaught the world has known against the Bible. Almost every Bible was destroyed, myriads of Christians perished, and a column of triumph was erected over an exterminated Bible with the inscription: “Extincto nominee Christianorum” (The names of the Christians have been extinguished). And yet by the year 325, Constantine enthroned the Bible as the Infallible Judge of Truth in the First General Council. (Acts and Facts)
