This volume brings together a large number of sources with which to illustrate the problem of religious violence in relation to the history of Christianity in the Roman Empire and post-Roman world. The sources are presented in both the original languages and in new English translation and are accompanied by introductions, comments, and short bibliographies. Thematically, Dirk Rohmann focuses on the ways in which Christians were subjected to violence by their pagan surroundings, on the ideas of martyrdom and of persecution, on how Christians thought about holy war, as well as on violence within the world of early monasticism and asceticism. This book will be of interest to both academics and students in the areas of ancient and early medieval history, classics, and religious studies.
