This work is largely a social history of Tertullian, a Christian from Carthage (c.160-220 CE), and his ancient African context, which is viewed through a postcolonial lens.Theories from the discipline of social/cultural anthropology, e.g. kinship, class and ethnicity, are applied to selections of Tertullian's writings.Some of the issues addressed include identity politics, Roman/African relations, martyrdom and the so-called Montanist heresy.
