The Miserable End Of Some Notorious Enemies, Of Christ And His Church: Hadrianus

Hadrianvs, like another Phalaris, raged against Christians. The persecution under him was so extreme, as Christians were murdered at the cry of the common people. Nevertheless in his time the Church was spread abroad far and near. At last he was punished with grievous sickness, and so being very weary of his life, sought often to kill himself, and finally procured one to slay him. See Baron.
