Abstract / Description of output

Perpetua was martyred with her fellow catechumens in Carthage in 203. Her story is told in the Passion of Perpetua and Felicity, a composite document made up of Perpetua's prison diary, her catechist Saturus' account of his own dream, and a wraparound narrative describing the exemplary deaths of the whole group. The writing illustrates the pouring out of the Spirit on young men and women, slaves male and female, and youngsters and elders (cf. Joel 2:28, Acts 2:17—18). It may have Montanist connections, though these should not be overstated.
