Overview

Discover the history of Latin Christendom with two of the first Christian apologists in The Select Works of Tertullian and Minucius Felix. Examine original Latin text alongside its English translation as you study Latin Christendom, its core beliefs, ethics, and the cultural forces of the time. In both Apology and De Spectaculis, Tertullian discusses the life of the time and the influences on thinking and writing in the Latin world. Minucius Felix continues the exploration of Latin Christendom in his Octavius, with a discussion of the social and religious conditions in Rome at the end of the second century, including the interactions between Roman and African Christianity.

The Logos edition of The Select Works of Tertullian and Minucius Felix is part of the Loeb Classical Library series and includes its original Latin text with an English translation for side-by-side comparison. Use Logos’ language tools to go deeper into the Latin text with linked definitions and pronunciation tools. You can also use the dictionary lookup tool to examine difficult English words used by the translator. Quick and easy access to maps and charts, as well as definitions and lexical information, allows you to understand historical events like never before.

About the Authors

Tertullian, (160–225) son of a Roman centurion from North Africa, pursued an education in literature and rhetoric. He practiced law for a while before becoming Christian around the year 197. Shortly after his conversion, Tertullian set himself to defending the Catholic faith against the pagans, as well as heretical Christians.

Minucius Felix was a Roman lawyer and one of the earliest Christian apologists to write in Latin.
