Example text

As at Caesarea, this devotion to old age had nothing to do with Christian influences; rather it had a profound impact on the structure of Christian practices and institutions in their local African form. How many other urban communities in Africa had factions that engaged in catervae? And did these traditional violent rituals, where they existed, spill into the new religious factionalism of the fourth and fifth centuries? We do not know. What can be noted are a few circumstantial details. Few cities of the late empire of any size escaped violent factionalism of some kind.

In the sectarian violence that rent the Christian communities of Africa in the fourth and fifth centuries, gangs of young men and women called circumcellions gathered in loose bands of violent proclivity.  More important is the rituallike nature of low-level violence in forging local identities in every city, town, and village.

The “bad man” was not just killed by popular action.  Whatever he had done had roused the ire and the frustrated hatred of a community. The crowd thought their actions to be a kind of popular justice, however rough, and the death of the official to be a well-deserved punishment. In what appears to be an angry disciplinary sermon, Augustine reprimanded his Christian parishioners who had participated in the riot.
