Thascius Caecilius Cyprianus believed fervently that his conversion experience had been a passage from the darkness of the world of Graeco Roman paganism to his new vision of Christianity. But Cyprian's response as bishop to the Decian persecution was to be informed by the pagan culture that he had rejected so completely. His view of church order also owed much to Roman jurisprudential principles of legitimate authority exercised within a sacred boundary spatially and geographically defined. Given the highly fragmented state of pagan sources for this period, Cyprian is often the only really contemporary primary source for the events through which he lived. In this book, Allen Brent seeks to contribute both to our understanding of Roman history in the mid-third century as well as the enduring model of church order that developed in that period.

Book Description:

Showing how Cyprian's response to the Decian persecutions was informed by his pagan background, this book draws on both archaeological and literary evidence in order firmly to anchor Cyprian's writings in the thought and political world of the third-century Roman Empire.

About the Author:

Allen Brent is an Affiliated Lecturer in the Faculty of Divinity at the University of Cambridge. He has published many books on the history of Christianity, most recently A Political History of Early Christianity (2009).
