The Calendar of Carthage



This document seems to date to the 6th century since it includes commemorations of all of the bishops of Carthage right from Gratus (c.343-48) until Eugenius (481-505). Of the earlier bishops of Carthage, it mentions Cyprian (249-58) alone, while it fails to mention Boniface (c.523-35). Note that the year begins after Easter in accordance with the usage of the African church, and that no feasts are listed for the period of Lent. The edge of the sole manuscript was damaged resulting in the loss of the days of the month in some cases. The translation is based on the edition by de Rossi and Duchesne (1894).
