Abstract The Acts of Thecla, as part of the apocryphal Acts of Paul, present to us two reports of a woman's martyrdom. The woman, named Thecla of Iconium was a famous person in the early Christian tradition. The present study tries to interpret Thecla's story by reference to the history of violence in antiquity. This interdisciplinary perspective is worthwhile and is also revealing astonishing facts.
