In this lesson, you will have the opportunity to work through a evaluative exercise of the text. The evaluative exercise will engage various aspects of the text at a deeper level.
The goal of the evaluative review is to give the reader an opportunity to consider aspects of the text that perhaps were not noted upon a first reading. As such, the evaluative exercise is offered as much as a learning opportunity for the reader as an opportunity to see what the reader “does or does not know.” Again, we encourage you to utilize the text as you complete the exercise.
Core Questions Reminder:
- How does the description of St. Polycarp mirror the gospel narrative of Christ’s crucifixion?
- How is Christian leadership portrayed in the text?
- What is the distinction between those who are faithful to Christ in martyrdom and those who deny Christ in the face of martyrdom?
- How is love of one’s enemy developed in the text?
- Following the martyrdom of St. Polycarp, what do the Christians do in relationship to St. Polycarp’s remains? Why do you think they do what they do?
