The blood of martyrs : unintended consequences of ancient violence by Joyce E Salisbury( Book )

9 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Blood of Martyrs - which, as Tertullian wrote, is 'the seed of Christians' - Joyce E. Salisbury chronicles the many spectacles of violent martyrdom that took place during the first three centuries of the Christian era, describing the role of martyrdom in the development of the early Church, as well as its continuing influence on many of today's ideas. The very public display of ancient violence, horrifically entertaining to Roman pagans, was deeply influential on early Christianity. Blood-rites and sacrifice allowed Christians to connect elements of ancient religions with the metaphysical language of their new faith. The power of the martyrs also shaped ideas as varied as magic, motherhood and virginity, sacrifice, suicide, and resurrection of the flesh. And, as Salisbury shows through the engaging stories of the martyrs introduced in each chapter, their legacy continues to shape contemporary ideas. Salisbury concludes with a discussion of modern martyrdom, eliciting deep lessons for the present from the ancient past and outlining the possibility of a religious future without violence.; In The Blood of Martyrs, Salisbury brings to life this tumultuous time in late antiquity and sheds invaluable light on religious violence, modern martyrs, and self-sacrifice

Rome's Christian empress : Galla Placidia rules at the twilight of the empire by Joyce E Salisbury( Book )

10 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Rome's Christian Empress, Joyce E. Salisbury brings the captivating story of Rome's Christian empress to life. The daughter of Roman emperor Theodosius I, Galla Placidia lived at the center of imperial Roman power during the first half of the fifth century. Taken hostage after the fall of Rome to the Goths, she was married to the king and, upon his death, to a Roman general. The rare woman who traveled throughout Italy, Gaul, and Spain, she eventually returned to Rome, where her young son was crowned as the emperor of the western Roman provinces. Placidia served as his regent, ruling the Roman Empire and the provinces for twenty years. Salisbury restores this influential, too-often forgotten woman to the center stage of this crucial period. Describing Galla Placidia's life from childhood to death while detailing the political and military developments that influenced her--and that she influenced in turn--the book relies on religious and political sources to weave together a narrative that combines social, cultural, political, and theological history. The Roman world changed dramatically during Placidia's rule: the Empire became Christian, barbarian tribes settled throughout the West, and Rome began its unmistakable decline. But during her long reign, Placidia wielded formidable power. She fended off violent invaders and usurpers who challenged her Theodosian dynasty; presided over the dawn of the Catholic Church as theological controversies split the faithful and church practices and holidays were established; and spent fortunes building churches and mosaics that incorporated prominent images of herself and her family. Compulsively readable, Rome's Christian Empress is the first full-length work to give this fascinating and complex ruler her due"--
