Si Lactancio (245-325 d.C.) justifica en su obra critical, Instituciones divinas, el apelativo de «Cicerón cristiano» y se rige por principios racionales para argumentar con serenidad y transmitir el mensaje cristiano a los angeles razón del lector con un tono más persuasivo que polémico, en Sobre l. a. muerte de los perseguidores adopta una actitud beligerante, de ataque y asedio contra los enemigos del cristianismo. Lactancio pretende demostrar l. a. justicia vengadora de Dios, puesta de manifiesto en l. a. suerte negative que han corrido los emperadores perseguidores de los cristianos. Narra los angeles historia de un tiempo y de unos sucesos sobre los que, de otro modo, no poseeríamos tantos detalles. Esta descripción de sucesos terribles cobra un especial interés por el hecho de estar escrita por un testigo, ya que l. a. mayoría de las muertes de emperadores consignadas se produjo en su época.
