Abstract

This article focuses on a local martyr from a village close to Isaura in the Taurus mountains: Konon of Bidana. The Martyrdom of Konon is a late antique Greek hagiographical text centred on this rural saint, and, in particular, its inter-connection of space and time is analysed. Through the employment of this literary strategy, the region around Bidana is used as a backdrop to a realm of memory. The epigraphical and archaeological remains show that the regional population respected Konon as their local patron.

Özet

Özet

Bu makale Toros dağlarındaki Isaura’ya yakın bir köyden gelen yerel bir şehide, Bidana’lı Konon’a odaklanmaktadır. Konon’un Şehitlik Hikayesi bu kırsal yerleşim azizine odaklanan bir geç antik dönem Yunan hagiografisidir ve özellikle onun zaman ve mekan arasındaki bağlantısı analiz edilmektedir. Bu yazınsal stratejinin kullanılmasıyla, Bidana çevresin-deki bölge bir hafıza alanı olarak çalışmalara zemin oluşturmaktadır. Epigrafik ve arkeolojik kalıntılar, bölge halkının Konon’a yerel yöneticileri olarak saygı duyduğunu göstermektedir.
