Eric Rebillard: Early African Martyr NarrativesWorkshop: 'Out of Africa': The Quest for North African Theological Identity(/-ies) in the Patristic Era

Candida Moss (2012) invited us to consider martyrdom ideologies in discrete geographically and sociohistorically units. In this paper I would like to consider whether such an approach is also valid from a literary point of view and explore in particular how looking at texts in their geographical and sociohistorical context could provide us with a better understanding of the generic development of early martyr narratives. African martyr narratives known to Augustine will be the object of this preliminary study.
