H.V. Morton on the Horrors of the Colosseum

"With the exception of Seneca, not one of the writers of antiquity, not even the kindly Horace and the gentle Pliny, condemned the degradation of the amphitheatre, and the world had to wait for Chrisitanity before men had the courage and the decency to close such places."

-H.V. Morton
