The Passion of Ss. Sergius & Bacchus relies on new archeological discoveries uncovering the untold story of early Christianity, and of Sergius and Bacchus, two young bodyguards to Julian, the last pagan Emperor of Rome. An explosive work of dramatized history, never before has a novel detailed the final gasp of paganism, the politics of newborn Christianity, and the re-discovered rites of same-sex unions performed by the early church. From the forests of Gaul to the streets of Constantinople, the secret Christian hideaways of the deaconess Macrina to the palace of the Emperor, The Passion of Ss. Sergius & Bacchus provides adventure and romance while examining questions of patriotism, sexuality, faith, sacrifice and the nature of God.
