Episode 116m Debunking the Debunkers on Early Church Martyr Accounts

Description: Martyrs and martyrdom in the Christian context is a fascinating and controversial topic. Scholars have debated the historicity, truthfulness and accuracy of the early accounts of Christian martyrs. Some scholars claim much of the martyrdom accounts are at a minimum false. New scholarship is painting these accounts in a more complex light. We are joined again by Professor David L. Eastman, author of many books and articles on the early Church, particularly in North Africa. Professor Eastman will guide through a discussion of new and old ways to view ancient martyrs and the early persecutions in Christianity.
