Abstract :
Martyrdom and pilgrimage were central experiences in the lives of early Christians. Those two elements seem closely interwoven in the career of Peter the Iberian, the influential fifth-century anti-Chalcedonian monk and bishop of Maiuma, Gaza. Their connectedness in Peter's life is an important key for understanding how anti-Chalcedonians interpreted their experiences of being a repressed minority in Palestine in the fifth and early sixth centuries A.D.
