Optatus, Bishop of Milevis in North Africa in the late fourth century, wrote a detailed refutation of Donatist claims to be the one true and righteous church, an ark of purity in a world which was still corrupt despite Constantine’s support for Christianity. This new translation of Optatus’s work is the first since 1917, and makes full use of modern scholarship in its annotation and Introduction.
