The issue of slavery was one that was historically treated with concern by the Catholic Church.Throughout most of human history, slavery has been practiced and accepted by many cultures and religions around the world.Certain passages in the Old Testament sanctioned forms of slavery and the New Testament taught slaves to obey their masters.After the legalisation of Christianity under the Roman empire, there was a growing sentiment that many kinds of slavery were not compatible with Christian conceptions of charity and justice; some argued against all forms of slavery while others, including the influential Thomas Aquinas, argued the case for slavery subject to certain restrictions.
