"The spread of Christianity was facilitated by the ease of travel in the Mediterranean of that era--aided ironically by the strong Roman military presence and the Romans' well-maintained system of roads. Paul made countless proselytizing journeys around the Mediterranean rim, establishing and overseeing communities of Christians. The Jerusalem Jesus Movement headed by James thrived for a time alongside Pauline Christianity. But it faded out shortly and was subsumed by the followers of Paul, whose more Hellenized and universalist version of Christianity is the one that converted Rome and prevailed in the West. "
