After we conclude our reading of Tertullian’s Apology, we shall turn our attention to the next great African Father, St. Cyprian of Carthage. He became bishop of Tertullian’s hometown in the middle of the third century. He survived the first general persecution of the Church at the beginning of the 250s but died during the second at the end of that decade. We are going to read at least two of his writings: the letter to Donatus, in which the bishop explains his conversion, and a short treatise in which he reflects upon the plague that struck Carthage after the end of the first general persecution. Our own need both to respond to the Lord’s call to conversion and to rise to the spiritual challenge posed by the COVID19 pandemic may derive support from the testimony of St. Cyprian.
