Perpetua's Journey is a graphic history set in Roman Africa in 203 CE that examines issues of power, gender, and religion in the ancient world through the story of the Christian martyr Perpetua.The Passio Sanctarum Perpetuae et Felicitatis, better known as The Passion of Saints Perpetua and Felicity, is the first known prose narrative written by a woman. It is also the first known piece of writing we have from a Christian woman. It is the story of a young mother, Vibia Perpetua, who livedin Roman Africa and, at the age of twenty-two, chose to proclaim publically her Christian faith. She died as a result of her actions. She did not die alone; she was part of a group of Christians martyrs, including several slaves, who were placed in prison and then sentenced to die on March 7 in theyear 203 CE. Perpetua's diary contains Perpetua's account of the events in the days leading up to her martyrdom.Perpetua's Journey is a graphic history that occupies a space between the many works designed primarily for specialists and advanced scholars who already know a great deal about Perpetua and the history of the Roman Empire, and more popular projects about the lives of saints. Perpetua's Journey isunique because it contains both a graphic portion and historical and social commentary on the Passio. Because the events recorded in the Passio take place during a time period in which we possess information about the history of the Roman Empire and everyday peoples' lives, the graphic part of thiswork strives for an authentic and realistic portrayal of events that happened to the persons in the diary.… (més)

In the early third century, two young mothers—a noblewoman, Perpetua, and an enslaved person, Felicity—met their deaths in a gladitorial arena in Roman North Africa. Two of the many Christians who died because of their refusal to obey Roman social mores, they are unusually well-known because of the account which Perpetua wrote while imprisoned. This became the core of the narrative known as the Passion of Perpetua and Felicity, and both women were acclaimed as martyrs and came to be regarded as saints by the Catholic Church.

Rea and Clarke do a good job here of using historically accurate visuals to create immediate context for students and to explicate some of the text's more obscure passages. The graphic novel part of the book is accompanied by analyses which help to explain broader social and historical contexts, and to discuss the various methods by which a historian might fruitfully approach a text in this genre, as well as by an up-to-date translation of the full text from the Latin. I might have liked a little more engagement on Rea's part with the ways in which religious faith (or lack thereof) can inform our readings of a hagiographic work, but she may rightfully have felt that was too sensitive a topic to be able to navigate well within such a small space.

Still, I think Perpetua's Journey is a text that's likely to go over well in the classroom, especially since I've known students to bounce hard off the Passion in the past when dealing with older translations. ( )

The newest issue in Oxford’s Graphic History Series transports readers into a striking martyr narrative set in the ancient Christian world: the story of Perpetua’s last week of life, as represented in the first-person account often attributed to her as a “diary” and included in the Passion of Perpetua and Felicity. The Passion frequently appears on syllabi for courses in early Christianity or the history of Christianity more broadly. (An informal poll on Twitter showed that 82% of the 73 respondents have assigned it.) Valued for how vividly it recounts the narrative of a group of male and female Christians in conflict with local authorities, the text is a boon to teachers who want to use it to highlight women in the ancient Christian world. Rea and Clarke’s attractive and affordable new treatment will only increase the Passion’s popularity in classrooms, as it supplements its story and ancillary resources with a graphic representation of the text (1-86).
