A History Of The Church In Nine Books by Sozomen

SUBSEQUENTLY, the Christian religion became know to the neighbouring tribes, and was very greatly disseminated. minated. The Armenians were the first to embrace Christianity. It is said, that Tiridates, the sovereign of that nation, was converted by means of a miracle which was wrought in his own house; and that he issued commands to all the rulers, by a herald, to adopt the same religion. I think that the introduction of Christianity among the Persians was owing to the intercourse which these people held with the Osdrœnians and Armenians; for it is likely that by associating with such divine men they were stimulated to imitate their virtues.
