Perpetua, A North African Mother of the Christian Faith

“Neither can I call myself anything else than what I am, a Christian. . . .Stand fast in the faith, and love one another, all of you, and be not offended at my sufferings.”

Perpetua, a North African women martyred early in the 3rd Century

These are some of her words as (most likely) preserved by Tertullian, a North African Church leader, in The Passion of Saints Perpetua and Felicity.

Perpetua is a 3rd Century mother of the Christian faith.
