This book considers the interactions between Cyprian and the five bishops of Rome during the ten years he was bishop of Carthage (249-258) as revealed in his letters and argues that this is more revealing than the theory to be found in De unitate. The conclusion reached is that Cyprian did not regard Rome as having jurisdiction outside its own provincia, although it had enormous influence.
