This edition of the Passio Sanctarum Perpetuae et Felicitatis aims to enable intermediate-level students of Latin to read the text in its original language. A substantial introduction provides background on the woman, her text, and her times. The Latin text includes a running glossary and grammatical commentary on every page.

About the Authors


“[W]hat makes this book highly innovative is the fact that most of it was written by students in the advanced Latin course at Stanford Online High School.  Hendrickson taught the course but the other nine co-authors were members of his class who each edited one section of the text and then all (including the teacher) peer-reviewed each others’ work.  The collaboration clearly worked and the result is a seamless guide to a piece of Latin which will be quite unlike anything which students will have encountered in their Latin courses to date.” -John Godwin, Classics for All
