The Purple Mantle (In the Reign of Diocletian)

An Historical Novel by Aliki Kafetzopoulou
Translated from the Greek by Efrosyni Zisimou Robinson
Edited by Lawrence Damian Robinson

“In her novel Aliki Kafetzopoulou has skillfully woven a rich historical tapestry full of spiritual depth, in order to present to us a glimpse of the lives of some of the martyred saints of the early Church. And in the process, she also presents us with a subtly told tale of spiritual growth and awakening in the midst of the chaos, confusion and fear of a society run amok in its denial of the True God. Although this is a story set in the antiquity of the Roman Empire, it is a story that could easily be told in the context of our twenty-first-century ‘global empire.’”
