“Preparation for Martyrdom in the Early Church” – A Lecture by Oliver Nicholson, 4/27/06

April 27, 2006IASEvents0

Early Christians, our Roman Emperor complained, had the habit of dying gladly. Were they simply limp victims for the lions or suicidal maniacs? Professor Nicholson (Department of Classical and Near Eastern Studies) will consider the rationale for martyrdom, by examining how Christians set about preparing themselves to face trial, condemnation, and death. Cosponsored by The Center for Medieval Studies, and The Department of Classical and Near Eastern Studies.
