Example text

God’s approval of Aaron’s priesthood is shown by fire coming out from before the Lord and consuming the burnt offering and the fat on the altar (Lev 9:24), whereas Aaron’s unworthy sons are consumed by fire from the Lord when they offer unholy fire (Lev 10:1–2). Fire from God also consecrates Elijah’s offering and puts the prophets of Baal to shame (1 Kgs 18:36–40). Thecla now belongs to God through this martyr’s baptism, and a further sign of this is the cloud of fire, which now surrounds Thecla.

Gilbert Dagron, Vie et miracles de Sainte Thècle: Text grec, traduction et commentaire (Subsidia Hagiographica 62; Brussels: Société des Bollandistes, 1978), 262. 20 The two readings thus reflect two different traditional motifs, one in which the saint will be reclothed from the garment of this life, the other in which reciprocity for a good action is stressed. In the first, there is no connection between Thecla and the governor. In the second, Thecla promises the governor salvation for his deed to her.

The Role of the Roman Authorities The first reading (“shall clothe me”) places a distance between Thecla and the Roman authorities. Her reply appears almost as a rebuke of the governor’s offer, even if she does put on the garments. The second reading (“shall clothe you”) emphasizes the sympathetic attitude of the Roman official as contrasted with the violent opposition to the Christians by the local people. The males are out for Thecla’s blood, and the persecution of Thecla is sparked by local discontent, as it had been also in Iconium.
