The Passion of Perpetua

1. The most recent release of The Passion of Perpetua is available here, current as of March 2014.

This is a reader’s version of the Greek text of this early martyr account, focused on Perpetua and her companions’ martyrdoms in North Africa in the early 3rd century. It is notable for including a considerable section considered to have been written by Perpetua herself, thus a very early text from a Christian woman. As well, one sees the development of the theology of martyrdom in the North African context, and hints of Montanist influence.

2. A Print version combining the Martyrdom of Polycarp and Perpetua is available:
