Perpetua is well known for her lively first person account of her stay in prison before execution. In some recent papers, it has been doubted whether Perpetua actually composed this text herself. This paper argues that while we cannot be absolutely certain that Perpetua wrote 'her' text, attempts to doubt her authorship cannot be based on the Latin text of the Passio, where it is clearly stated that Perpetuais text was written manu sua 'with her own hand'.
