    And when the people besought that they should be brought forward, that when the sword pierced through their bodies their eyes might be joined thereto as witnesses to the slaughter, they rose of themselves and moved, whither the people willed them, first kissing one another, that they might accomplish their martyrdom with the rites of peace. Then she was called for again, and bound up her dishevelled hair; for it was not becoming for a martyr to suffer with dishevelled hair, lest she should appear to be mourning in her glory. The text ends as the editor extols the acts of the martyrs. 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.

    Then she was called for again, and bound up her dishevelled hair; for it was not becoming for a martyr to suffer with dishevelled hair, lest she should appear to be mourning in her glory. And we therefore, what we have heard and handled, declare also to you, brethren and little children, that as well you who were concerned in these matters may be reminded of them again to the glory of the Lord, as that you who know them by report may have communion with the blessed martyrsand through them with the Lord Jesus Christto whom be glory and honourfor ever and ever. And I awoke, and I knew that my brother was in travail. Perchance so great a woman could not else have been slain being feared of the unclean spirit had she not herself so willed it" xix.

    Then, in a few days after I had been without my father, I gave thanks to the Lord; and his absence became a source of consolation to me. Then Hilarian passed sentence upon us all and condemned us to the beasts; and cheerfully we went down to the dungeon. And then my father came to me from the city, worn out with anxiety. And he cried to me, and from the curd he had from the milk he gave me as it were a morsel; and I took it with joined hands and ate it up; and all that stood around said, Amen. And where there had been a wound, I saw a scar; and that pool which I had before seen, I saw now with its margin lowered even to the boy's navel.

And the elders said to us, and enjoy. In that same interval of a few days we were baptized, and to me the Spirit prescribed that in the water of baptism nothing else was to be sought for bodily endurance.

Perpetua's Passion

Secundulus Dies in the Prison. I found Perpetua's Passion to be very well written and apparently well researched. It also includes a newly edited version of the Latin text based on all the extant manuscripts and - rarer still - the Greek text. At the beginning of the spectacle therefore himself with Revocatus first had ado with a leopard and was afterwards torn by a bear on a raised bridge.

They were stripped therefore and made to put on nets; and so they were brought forth.

Sometime afterthe Roman emperor Septimius Severus forbade conversion to Christianity or Judaism, and in the governor of Carthage, Hilarian, enforced this edict.

And when they were brought to the gate, and were constrained to put on the clothing - the men, that of the priests of Saturn, and the women, that of those who were consecrated to Ceres - that noble-minded woman resisted even to the end with constancy.
