The Complete Works of Saint Cyprian of Carthage
Edited by Phillip Campbell
Introduction by Ryan Grant
This volume contains the entirety of Saint Cyprian's writing, "The Life and Passion of Saint Cyprian" by his companion Pontius the Deacon, and the minutes of the Seventh Council of Carthage over which Cyprian presided. Topics include the Roman persecutions, the unity of the Church, those who renounced the faith under threat from the state, the Novatian heresy and the rebaptism controversy.
Read and cited frequently by theologians down through the ages, Saint Cyprian's writings are of surpassing authority and were considered works of genius "brighter than the sun" by Saint Jerome.
