Item description for Deaths And Celibate Lives: Christian Martyrs And Ascetics (Greece & Rome Live) (Bristol Phoenix Press - Greece and Rome Live) by Aideen M. Hartney...

From among the early Christian faithful emerged colorful personalities who seized the imagination and held the attention of their community, either by their readiness to die for their faith as martyrs or by their extravagant subsumation of earthly desires to spiritual ends as ascetics. Their actions inspired contemporaries, played a key role in the development of the Christian faith and the organization of the Church, and are venerated in the Christian tradition. This book places these remarkable figures in their historical and cultural context and explores the thinking behind their actions. It offers a clear portrait of the period and a rounded assessment of its protagonists, unbiased by the triumphalist approach of Christian commentary or the negativity of those who may disapprove of the way the Church developed. It is intended as an introduction for readers who approach late antiquity and early Christianity, whether from a sociological, historical or theological perspective.
