Lactantius' De ira Dei an explication of the arguments and study of lactantius' treatment of Greco-Roman philosophy /

by (Caroly Marie), 1974- Harvey

Abstract (Summary)
This thesis focuses on Lactantius’ philosophical tract, De Ira Dei, discussing its arguments and arrangement. It also addresses Lactantius’ treatment of Greco-Roman philosophy, showing that while Lactantius is grounded in this philosophy he also goes beyond it into the development of his own thought. A close comparison between Lactantius’ De Ira Dei and Seneca’s De Ira is used to exemplify Lactantius’ treatment of Greco-Roman philosophy.
