This volume contains Alexander Souter’s English translations of De Oratione and De Baptismo. The De Oratione is of interest not only as the earliest surviving exposition of the Lord’s Prayer in any language, but also for its intrinsic qualities, and the text of the prayer which it furnishes. The De Baptismo is not merely the earliest treatise on its subject, but it is the only Ante-Nicene treatise on any of the Sacraments. It is at the same time a treatise on confirmation, because in those days baptism and confirmation “were regarded as two moments in a single action.”
