Abstrakt

The acts of the sixty martyrs of Gaza is a Latin translation of an original text, describing the conquest of Gaza and the martyrdom of its Christian garrison who died in the name of their Christian faith.

Since there is little information describing the capture of the garrison in 7th century, Passio sanctorum sexaginta martyrum is one of the few sources describing the event that allows us to reconstruct the dramatic train of events that transpired at the time. The text also discusses Muslims policies towards Christians in the Middle East back in the day.

The study strives to identify the anonymous soldiers of the Gaza Garrison who gave their lost their lives at the hands of the Muslim conquerors because of their refusal to abandon Christianity.
