Christian Saint

Perpetua lies dead at the hands of the Romans in this reenactment. She is one of the most venerated martyrs in all Christian litany. She recorded in a diary about five young Christians that are brought into an arena just over 1800 years ago. Although, the diary does not tell us why she is arrested, Christianity is not illegal so most likely it is not because of her faith.
