Peres saints et culte chretien dans l'Eglise des premiers siecles, Hardback Book

Peres saints et culte chretien dans l'Eglise des premiers siecles Hardback

Part of the Variorum Collected Studies series

Description

The Christianity of Roman North Africa provides the setting for many of the articles collected here. Several focus on the writings of Cyprian and Augustine, others on the nomenclature of the martyrs of the 2nd-3rd centuries and their cult. The development of this cult and the cult of relics, both in general, and specifically in relation to Africa and to Rome, is a key theme in the author's work. He approaches the question from a liturgical standpoint, as well as those of archaeology and hagiography, and the liturgical history of the early Church forms a further strand running through the volume.
