In Acta Carpi, a woman named Agathonice spontaneously takes off her clothes before being burned at the stake.
Simeon Metaphrastes is even less reliable; it has even been questioned whether he was not consciously deceitful. Even the improbable may contain more facts of history than many a narrative which bears the appearance of sobriety and restraint. Each text has a brief introduction, parallel Latin translation, and historical and literary notes. Romulus, enraged, gave instructions that he be plunged alive into a pit, with shackled hands and feet.
ABSTRACT This volume Acta martyrum a sequel to the Stories of Early Christian Martyrs. But in the first case the formal setting can surely be imitated, and it is unsafe therefore to seek to establish historicity by such an argument. Subsequently in 692 the Trullan Council at Constantinople excommunicated those who were responsible for the reading of spurious Acta. The Roman Council of 494 actually condemned the public reading of the Acta P. An index at the end of each volume makes it easy for readers to find passages of interest.
