This project aims at presenting a bilingual edition of two crucial early Christian texts from the late 2nd century in the genre of martyr acts: the Acta Martyrum Scillitanorum and the Passio Perpetuae et Felicitatis. Of both a Latin text will be given, based on recent editions (Hunink 2021 and Heffernan 2012), as well as a Greek translation dating from late antiquity. Both versions will be faced by new, modern translations in English, and a fair amount of annotation. The edition is due to be published in the series Brepols Library of Christian Sources (BLCS), edited by prof. T. O’Loughlin.
