A collection of texts known as "The Persian Christian Martyr's Acts" are amongst significant written sources for reconstruction of Sassanian period in the history of Iran. They contain some unique data which no other source can provide. Unfortunately, these texts have neither been considered adequately nor employed in comparison with other classical sources about Sassanian history. The first part of the article reviews the background of the scientific researches that has been done on these sources up to now. The Second part aims firstly to study the short Syriac text known as "Martyrs of Karkha de Beth Selok" and secondly to provide a Persian translation.
