Church Life and Thought in North Africa AD 200
Stuart A. Donaldson was an admired scholar, Master of Magdalene College, Cambridge, and Vice-Chancellor of Cambridge University from 1912 to 1913. This book is a detailed study of the Church in North Africa in AD 200, and was first published in 1909. With specific focus on the writings of Tertullian, Donaldson writes in depth about Christian Doctrine and Practice in the North African Church. The text is made accessible to all by the careful translation of Greek and Latin passages into English. Donaldson discusses early North African Eucharist, creed and prayer, as well as explaining the threefold order of government in the Church. His other chapters explore North African Martyrs, Monatism and the Bible, and there is also an intriguing section on those other religions which stood to rival Christianity in 200 AD.
