This chapter focuses on the individuals named in the Passion. The Passio provides historical clues concerning twenty-seven individuals. From this limited information, an attempt is made to reconstruct something of their social personae as they are depicted in the narrative. These include characters such as Revocatus, Felicity, Saturninus, Secundulus, and Perpetua.
