Buying and selling of slaves was common in the ancient world, especialy within the Roman Empire. It declined during the early Middle Ages, but has not completely died out.

The slave trade recommenced in 1455 in Africa. The Pope gave justification to enslave non-Christians in a papal bull.[Citation Needed] It became an important part of Africa's economy. It did not come to an end until 1800-1865 with the work of Christians; William Wilberforce and John Wesley.[Citation Needed] The United States passed the 13th Amendment in response to it.
