Book Review--The Bronze Ladder

The Bronze LadderThe Bronze Ladder by Malcolm Lyon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really liked "The Bronze Ladder" by Malcolm Lyon.  It is a very well-researched story about the martyrdom of Sts. Felicty and Perpetua. I really enjoyed the details about the practices of the early Church and the fleshing out of the relationship between the 2 women. Very nice to know the back story of 2 saints we hear so often about in the prayers of Mass.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
