During the first several centuries of Christianity, the followers of Jesus were subject to numerous and cruel persecutions, and sometimes bizarre and gruesome tortures and executions. For this persecuted Church, martyrdom was both a confronting reality and an eloquent testimony to the power of faith. During this time, written accounts of the acts of the martyrs flourished as a genre of spiritual writing, and present much that is moving and inspiring. This weekend will explore the stories of those holy women and men who faced martyrdom under the Diocletian persecution, which was the largest and most bloodthirsty of the early campaigns to suppress Christianity.
