Tacitus was a great Roman historian living from c55 to 117. In his Annals, Tacitus, writing about 115, describes the fire of Nero. Obviously, Tacitus has no time for Christianity, but he is clear that Christians did not burn down Rome. He had a good opportunity to be well informed about Christian origins, for in 112 he was made governor of Asia where Christians were numerous, and he had spent much of his life in the East.
