Title: Sententiae Episcoporum, Concilium Carthaginiense a. 256
Origin: Carthage (Latin North Africa)
The “Sententions of the Bishops” have been preserved among the works of Cyprian. They are the transcription of the opinions expressed by the African bishops gathered by Cyprian on 1 September 256 to express their opinion on the validity of the baptism administered by the heretics; two previous councils on the same issue took place in 255 and Spring 256.
