Excerpts: A Letter to the Soldiers of Coroticus 3

translated by John Skinner

(On the murdered dead) ...I can see you all clearly: you have set out for where there will be no more night, no more lament, neither death. ...Therefore will you reign with the apostles and the prophets and all the martyrs. You will attain the eternal kingdoms. Just as he testifies, exactly as he declares... ...And so, now you, Coroticus, and your gangsters, now where do you see yourselves? You gave away girls like prizes: not yet women, but baptized. All for some petty temporal gain that will pass in the very next instant... (20)
