..."this book is a very pleasant and engaging read, both for the neophyte and for the expert who has come to relish the clarity, precision, and courage of [Salisbury]." -"Religious Studies Review ..."a compelling read...." -"Journal of Women's History "Salisbury provides well-founded responses to a number of long-standing issues." -"Trinity Seminary Review "Salisbury's investigation of a Christian martydom in 203 and its subsequent impact appeals beyond its apparent natural audience of scholars because it is an engagingly told story." -"Booklist, 10-98 "Salisbury has performed the important work of bringing the story of Perpetua to a much-deserved wider reading audience. She has also invited readers unfamiliar with the ancient world into its vibrancy and complexity, and she has done so with a good deal of insight and lively narrative style." -"Women's Review of Books, 3/98
