Donatist Martyr Stories: The Church in Conflict in Roman North Africa
Maureen A. Tilley
Liverpool University Press, 1996 - Religion - 101 pages
With this volume, Donatism regains its voice and its hagiography is available in English for the first time. The stories included provide a unique opportunity to glimpse the daily life of the church which for over a century was the faith of the majority of North African Christians. The narratives represent the lives and deaths of Christians who carried on pre-Constantine traditions from the fourth century to the advent of Islam.
