in 177 CE, Blandina, an immigrant slave girl, was tortured for several days in this Roman Theatre (Amphithéâtre des Trois-Gaules, in Lyon). A simple wooden post marks the place of her death. After being tortured, her body was burned and the remains emptied into the nearby Rhone River. At the time, the Roman Empire misunderstood the nature of many of the beliefs of the early Christian Church.
