Cyprian was bishop of Carthage and a notable Early Christian writer, many of whose Latin works are extant.
He was born around the beginning of the 3rd century in North Africa, perhaps at Carthage, where he received a classical education. Soon after converting to Christianity, he became a bishop in 249. His skilled Latin rhetoric led to his being considered the pre-eminent Latin writer of Western Christianity.
