Donatist Martyr Stories: The Church in Conflict in Roman North Africa
Maureen A. Tilley
Liverpool University Press, 1996 - Religion - 101 pages
The Donatist Church of North Africa was known as the Church of the Martyrs, yet its martyr stories are virtually unknown. With this volume, Donatism regains its voice and its hagiography and is made accessible to English-language readers for the first time.
The stories included here provide a unique glimpse of daily life in a church which was the faith of the majority of North African Christians in the fourth and fifth centuries, and which survived until the rise of Islam in the region.
