Hey Esther!
I was reading chapter 6 and I noticed that Marcellus reads out loud some of the names on the tombstones (pg. 4 and 5). I was wondering if there were any other tombstones I'm supposed to read that I might have overlooked.
Thanks! :D
Pat

No, I think all the ones you read so far are the ones you were supposed to read. The narrator (me!) will read the rest. :)

All of Marcellus is PL OK! Thank you so much!! I recently read The Robe, and it was so cool to see how similar the two books were (I only wish we could record The Robe for LibriVox!) If you're interested, The Spanish Brothers is also about Christian martyrs and is looking for more people to read: viewtopic.php?f=27&t=59471
Thanks for your help! :D

You are welcome!
I know! Both books had the same name for the protagonist. As you can guess my confusion before I read Martyrs lol.
I will look into it! I would love to read a few parts for the Spanish Brothers but my solo projects are taking up most of my time.

Is this 'Friendly Man', and is this the only part of the story that he appears in?
A few days afterward Marcellus went up for provisions. This time he was alone. He went to the house of a man who was friendly to them and had been of much assistance. It was outside of the walls, in the suburb nearest the Appian Way.

After obtaining the requisite supply, he began to inquire after the news. "The news is bad for you," said the man. "One of the Pretorian officers was recently converted to Christianity, and the emperor is enraged. He has appointed another to the office which he held, and has sent him after the Christians. They are catching some every day. No man is too poor to be seized in these days."

"Ah! Do you know the name of this Pretorian officer who is seeking the Christians?"

"Lucullus."

"Lucullus!" cried Marcellus. "How strange!"

"He is said to be a man of great skill and energy."

"I have heard of him. This is indeed bad news for the Christians."

"The conversion of the other Pretorian officer has greatly enraged the emperor. A price is now set upon his head. If you chance to see him or to be in his way, friend, you had better let him know. They say he is in the Catacombs."

"He must be there. There is no other place of safety."

"These are indeed terrible times. You have need to be cautious."

"They cannot kill me more than once," said Marcellus.

"Ah! you Christians have wonderful fortitude. I admire your bravery; yet still I think you might conform outwardly to the emperor's decree. Why should you rush so madly upon death?"

"Our Redeemer died for us. We are ready to die for him. And since he died for his people, we also are willing to imitate him and lay down our lives for our brethren."

"You are wonderful people," said the man, raising his hands.

Marcellus now bade him farewell, and departed with his load. The news which he had just heard filled his mind.

Yes, that is the friendly man, and that is where his only lines are. :)
