    More Information:

    St. Cyprian of Carthage. (Thaschus Caecilius Cyprianus). Bishop and martyr. Of the date of the saint's birth and of his early life nothing is known. At the time of his conversion to Christianity he had, perhaps, passed middle life. He was famous as an orator and pleader, had considerable wealth, and held, no doubt, a great position in the metropolis of Africa...On the whole his beauty of style has rarely ben equalled among the Latin Fathers, and never surpassed except by the matchless energy and wit of St. Jerome." [Catholic Ency.]

    De Pamele (1536-1587) canon of Bruges edited this edition using those of Manitius, Morel and manuscript sources.         Glorieux , Belgica, 5541. Adams C3164. BM STC (Dutch)  59. Index Aurel. 149.113.
