About this product
- DescriptionThis book studies the life and times of Saint Perpetua, Saint Felicity and their companions, all martyred at Carthage in 203 A.D. Unlike most early Christian saints, whose lives are often shrouded in legend and myth, Perpetua left an authentic prison diary, later completed by an anymous eyewitness to her execution, that is w considered a classic of Christian, Latin and feminist literature. Perpetua was also unusual in that she was wealthy, educated, married, and a young mother. The book includes the first English translations of French archaeological scholarship covering the discovery of the martyrs' tombs.
