Abstract Two papyrus documents from the time of the Great Persecution—an official document relating to the confiscation of church property and a private letter from a man to his wife—show how Christians were coping with the imperial measures by small acts of resistance. These mundane texts thus nuance our understanding of this formative period for ancient Christianity.
