In Early Christianity in North Africa patristic scholar Francois Decret explains how along with the churches located in large Greek cities of the East, the church of Carthage was particularly significant in the early centuries of Christian history.
Initially, the Carthaginian church became known for its martyrs. Later, the North African church became further established and unified through the regular councils of its bishops. Finally, the church gained a reputation for its outstanding leaders-Tertullian of Carthage (c. 140-220), Cyprian of Carthage (195-258), and Augustine of Hippo (354-430)-African leaders who continued to be celebrated and remembered today.
