Marcus Minucius Felix was one of the earliest of the Latin apologists for Christianity. He was of Berber origin.




Marcus Minucius Felix lived in Rome and became a lawyer. Details of his birth have been lost to the ages. His legacy is his book, Octavious, which was written, is dialogue form. The dialogue is between a pagan and Christian. Besides being an explanation of Christianity, the work has an emphasis on divine providence. Felix synthesized the writings of several authors into his dialogue. Felix’ apologetics were influenced by many others including Tertullian. Felix died in or about the year 250.
