Conflicting ideas o. .In Perpetua's Passion, Salisbury has served two different communities very well--those interested in early Christianity, and those interested in the history of women.

  • This is one of the most engaging biographies of a person living in ancient times that I have ever encountered. Prof. Salisbury did a thorough job researching the historical context for St. Perpetua. One can tell that she brought all her background and training to bear upon the task. The result is a highly readable and informative account driven by the words of Perpetua herself. Perpetua's death in the great theater at Carthage seems anticlimactic in one sense in that it was inevitable given the circumstances, but no less filled with pathos leading up to that day and after. Salisbury paints a picture of a sort that makes the reader feel like they are walking the path that Perpetua walked. For people of faith, especially, this a dramatic account that draws one in and holds one firmly in its grip until and beyond this young woman's martyrdom. This is a book that students of the early church will want to read again someday. I have recommended it to my students and colleagues.

  • THIS IS A WELL RESEARCHED HISTORY BOOK ABOUT THE ROMAN EMPIRE AND CHRISTIAN MARTYRDOM AROUND THE YEAR 200 AD. UNFORTUNATELY, PERPETUA'S DIARY IS SEGMENTED THROUGHOUT THE BOOK, MAKING THE SUBJECT MATTER MORE ABOUT THE HISTORY THAT SURROUNDED THE STORY THAN THE DIARY ITSELF. PERHAPS THE TITLE IS MISLEADING, THE BOOK IS EXPENSIVE AND NOT WHAT I WAS EXPECTING, BUT IT WILL BE A GOOD HISTORICAL REFERENCE .

  • This is an excellent description of the earl Christian Martyrdom and the inspiration these brave people of faith gave to others. The church truly is "built on the blood of the martyrs'" Reading this book may help one to better appreciate the early martyrs as well as call us to stand with then many martyrs of our current time.

  • This is one of the best historical reads ever. It paints a complete picture of early Christianity in what was then known as Carthage. Of course this is about the Christian martyrs Perpetua, Felicity and the 3 men that were all sacrificed

  • This wonderful work provides you with an immense amount of background material.

  • I really enjoyed this book. It was filled with a lot of useful information. It was in good condition. God bless

  • STAMPED ON MY MIND FOREVER-FABULOUS BOOK. TO KNOW OF SUCH STRONG HEROISM OF THESE 2 SAINTS OF GOD MOVED ME TO A MUCH DEEPER WALK WITH GOD. IT MAKES YOU THINK IF YOU HAD THE FAITH TO DIE LIKE THAT. I LOVED IT TOTALLY.

  • perfectly delivered...excellent
