"In the eastern part of the empire, "orthodox" Christians killed large numbers of "heretical" Christians. The death toll of Vestal Virgins, Arians, Athanasians, Donatists, and Novatians killed by other Christians between 330 and 380 was many times more than had been killed by pagan persecution in two and half centuries. [McCabe, 1939, 55]"
