Until the time of Augustine, Bishop Cyprian of Carthage was the theological authority in the West, and he has continued to influence theology ever since. This volume is the result of a symposium on the Church Father held by the Centre for Patristic Research (CPO), which is an initiative of VU University Amsterdam and Tilburg University. The symposium was held on the occasion of the 1750th anniversary of his martyrdom, which took place on 14 September 258. The contributions cover Cyprian's biography, hermeneutical and philological questions, theological issues such as baptism and the role of the laity in episcopal elections, and the reception of the Church Father's texts in ancient and modern times.
