LACTANTIUS ON THE DEATHS OF THE PERSECUTORS PDF

I have replaced the introduction with a brief one of my own, removed the page numbers to that edition since they seemed more confusing than helpful , and deleted the references to footnotes since only the references and not the notes were present in the scanned version. I have added a few notes; these, employing the capabilities of Internet browsers, I have placed in a second frame to facilitate consultation of text and notes at the same time.

THE Lord has heard those supplications which you, my best beloved Donatus, pour forth in His presence all the day long, and the supplications of the rest of our brethren, who by a glorious confession have obtained an everlasting crown, the reward of their faith.

For God has raised up princes to rescind the impious and sanguinary edicts of the tyrants and provide for the welfare of mankind; so that now the cloud of past times is dispelled, and peace and serenity gladden all hearts.
