Overview

The two authors featured in this volume composed defenses of the Christian faith in Latin around the turn of the third century. In Rome, Minucius Felix used the genre of dialogue to confront pagan opposition to Christianity, and in Carthage, Tertullian produced an apologetical treatise as well as an open letter to a Roman governor. Tertullian, who is known for his blanket rejection of pagan philosophy, nevertheless utilized Stoic concepts in his essay De anima, which describes the nature, capability, and ultimate destination of the soul.
