This book traces the reinterpretations of the famous North African martyr text Passio Perpetuae et Felicitatis in the literature of the early Church from the 3rd century up to the times of Augustine. This recontextualization reaches its peak in the so-called Acta Perpetuae that represent a radical rewriting of the original and an attempt to replace it with a purified text more compliant with the socio-theological conventions of that time.
