Minimum number of participants is 3, maximum is Lucius Caelius Firmianus, better known as Lactantius, lived in turbulent times. Shortly afterwhen the persecutions were over and the Perrsecutorum was making peace with the Christians, Constantine called Lactantius to Trier to serve as tutor for his son Crispus.

Perhaps here, perhaps elsewhere, Lactantius wrote De mortibus persecutorum “On the kinds of death the persecutors have died”a very personal reflection of the past era of violence, a text that is somewhere between a polemical pamphlet and a theological treatise about God’s justice theodicy.


We will take this text in translation as basis to reflect about early Christianity’s relationship with the Roman Empire and vice versa and take a look at the most important early Christian apologetic texts and their Jewish predecessors.

On the historical level, we will assess the tetrarchs’ reform of the Empire and the ascent of Constantine. Moving around in the two worlds of “paganism” and Christianity, Lactantius will prove us a highly stimulating guide.
