Cyprian of Carthage Quotes

Cyprian (circa 200 – 258)

Cyprian (circa 200 – 258) was bishop of Carthage and a notable Early Christian writer, many of whose Latin works are extant. He is also recognised as a saint in the Christian churches. He was born around the beginning of the 3rd century in North Africa, perhaps at Carthage, where he received a classical education. Soon after converting to Christianity, he became a bishop in 249. His skillful Latin rhetoric led to his being considered the pre-eminent Latin writer of Western Christianity until Jerome and Augustine.
