Studies on Christianity in the context of peace and violence have been conducted in two ways. While some have tried to prove how the Christians are pacifist; others, on the contrary, have struggled to testify that they have used violence indeed. However, history of Christianity is laden with instances proving both of these notions. This article does not aim to determine which of these arguments are tangible. The aim of this study is to examine the perception of pacifism in early Christians within the scope of the New Testament and the written works of church fathers who lived prior to Council of Nicaea (325).
