Addressing the magistrates of the Roman court, Tertullian submits the real facts in the case of the Christians, defending the legitimacy of the new faith while charging its detractors with hypocrisy and worse. Scathing, eloquent and defiant, the Apology demonstrates the importance of classical rhetoric to the identity of the controversial religion and its recent converts.

This edition (1917), accompanied by a complete commentary by J. E. B. Mayor and translation by Alexander Souter, has been called by the far the best commentary ever published on the work. Published posthumously from Mayors extensive Cambridge lecture notes, the commentary is a starting point for anyone seeking a full understanding of the texts critical history.
