Horizontal or Not? The Patibulum in Sallust, Hist. 3 Frg. 9

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review

Abstract

Did Jesus carry a whole cross or just a part, a patibulum? Whether patibulum
is horizontal or not is an issue in crucifixion studies. Sallust, Hist. 3 frg. 9, could
play a role in this discussion. By a thorough survey of the narrative context and
the many text-critical issues, we hope to contribute something to the discussion
by arguing that patibulum in Sallust, Hist. 3 frg. 9, should be understood as
horizontal.
