Antonio Ciseri's Ecce Homo (1871)

Welcome to The Prætorium!

In ancient Rome, the prætorium was originally the name for the commander’s tent or house in a fortification. Later, praetorium was the name given to the residence of a procurator (governor) of a Roman province, thus acquiring an administrative and juridical sense.

Jesus Christ was condemned to death by Pontius Pilate at the praetorium — a place where faith, culture and politics collided in a way that forever changed the course of human history. This blog explores how faith, culture and politics come together — and often collide — in the 21st century.

No, that's not our Editor, but Hristo Shopov (Pontius Pilate in Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ)

Editor Patrick Novecosky brings you some the most fascinating and maddening examples of how religious liberty is being eroded by so-called progressives in the United States and around the world. We also bring you some of the best examples of how faith is making inroads in our post-Christian culture.
