The acts of the pagan martyrs: Acta Alexandrinorum

Herbert Musurillo
Clarendon Press, 2000 - 299 Seiten
Volume I of Herbert Musurillo's critical editions, with translations and commentaries, of ancient martyr literature, surveys the development of the genre, discussing the political and historical background which produced it. These texts were written in the form of court records reporting the trials of Alexandrian heroes punished by the Roman authorities. Anti-Roman and often violently propagandist in tone, they reflect the political tensions experienced by the Greeksunder German rule.
