The early church presbyter Hippolytus crafted the church's oldest orthodox commentary on scripture with a motif of martyrdom to encourage church congregations during a time of severe Roman persecution. Hippolytus interprets the text through allegory, typology, theodicy, parenesis, and reflection to create a motif of martyrdom. His purpose is clearly pastoral arising from his role as presbyter: to exhort his congregations to prepare to be martyred for Christ amid the Severan persecution.
In the third century CE, Emperor Septimius Severus unleashed a shocking and severe persecution against the Christian church. Witnessing the fear and confusion in his congregations, the presbyter Hippolytus crafted his Commentary on Daniel to encourage Christians confronted with the reality of martyrdom and persecution. In a work which comes to us as the earliest orthodox Christian commentary on scripture, Hippolytus interprets the text through allegory, typology, theodicy, paraenesis, and reflection to create a motif of martyrdom. By doing so, Hippolytus guides Christians iin their communities as they stand heroically before the tribunal of Caesar, like the Danielic characters stood before authorities in Babylon. His purpose in the commentary is clearly pastoral, arising from his role as presbyter: to exhort his Christian congregations to prepare to be martyred for Christ amidst Roman persecution.
