The Creedal Homilies: Conversion in Fifth-Century North Africa

   
Quodvultdeus of Carthage
Translation and Commentary by Thomas Macy Finn

No. 60 of Ancient Christian Writers: The Works of the Fathers in Translation

“The subject at hand[...]is the three creedal homilies now convincingly assigned to Quodvultdeus, De symbolo 1, 2, and 3. For centuries they were assigned to Augustine, which is where they can be found in Migne’s Patrologia Latina (40.337–68). The text followed for translation in this volume, however, is the critical edition published by R. Braun in volume 60 of the Corpus Christianorum, series Latina in 1976. [...]The creedal homilies were delivered on Sunday morning a week before Easter—perhaps before three successive Easters in the mid-430s. The setting of all three was a pivotal set of initiation rites enacted during the vigil the night before (Saturday): scrutiny, renunciation of Satan, and the profession of the baptismal creed. The target audience was those about to be baptized, the competentes, those who were seeking baptism together. [...T]hey were the pivotal rites of the Lenten catechumenate[...].”
