BMCR posted a review of Franz Hasenhütl’s Die Heidenrede im “Octavius” des Minucius Felix als Brennpunkt antichristlicher Apologetik: Weltanschauliche und gesellschaftliche Widersprüche zwischen paganer Bildungsoberschicht und Christentum. Though the book is in German, the review is in English, and the discussion will be welcome by anyone who’s a fan (as I am) of Octavius, the second-century dialogue by Minucius Felix.

I love Octavius, also, as much for the charming description of Octavius’s family in chapter 2 as for the depth of his arguments. This is an example of Christian humanism at its finest.
