What if you had a gift to bring rest to the restless dead?
No one in ancient Rome knows why the dead are rising to devour their families. The patrician class thinks the dead hunger because the new cult of Christianity is depriving Roman tombs of their proper rites. But Father Polycarp, who faces the walking corpses in the dirty alleys and tenements of Rome's ghetto district, believes the dead rise because the living died hungry. Confronting the ghouls in the dark hours, he can gaze into their eyes and see their stories, see everything they craved in life.
And he believes he can help, but the stress of gazing into all those souls may rip him apart.
And that’s if Rome doesn’t burn him for it first.
What Our Eyes Have Witnessed gives you a tale of the early church and the decline of Rome...but not as you have ever seen it before.
