Question Decian Persecutions

Hello everybody.

I am currently writing a paper on the Decian Persecutions. I am close to finishing it, but I can not seem to fully understand as to why Decius did not decide to persecute the Jews. I am also having a hard time finding information about concrete forms of the persecutions; what were the specific punishments?

I hope someone is able to answer some of my questions. English is not my first language, I am sorry for errors.

Thank you in advance!

Because Judaism was religio licita (legal religion). Judaism was given a special status in the Empire by Caesar. And Judaism is a national religion reserved for the Jews, while Christianity was actively seeking to convert others.

I guess that the punishments were the usual kind (throwing to the lions, executions etc) but I'm not really sure.
