Review:


"... a model of its kind... both well and attractively produced."--Journal of Ecclesiastical History


"Van Dam offers us an excellent translation... The notes are a valuable interpretive addition to the text."--Church History


Synopsis:

This series is designed to meet the needs of students of ancient and medieval history and others who wish to broaden their study by reading source material, but whose Latin and Greek is not sufficent to allow them to do so in the original language. "Glory of the Confessors" contains a series of anecdotes about the lives and cults of Christians who bore witness to their faith through their exemplary lives. The stories provide evidence about the way in which bishops manipulated cults, and the meaning and function of the cults themselves.
