A group of Quodvultdeus’s sermons—specifically De cantico novo, De accedentibus ad gratiam I–II, De symbolo I–III, De ultima quarta feria, and De cataclysmo—is addressed to candidates for baptism (competentes). In the years after the Vandal invasion of Africa and preceding their conquest of Carthage, the Bishop of Carthage prepared new members of the Church for the upcoming persecution, when their Catholic faith would be challenged. In his catecheses, he aims at building up their identity and sense of belonging to the Church. The study focuses on four topics of his formation related to the shared identity of the candidates for baptism: the desire for a new life, the Church, heresies, and the liturgical rite, exemplified by the renunciation of the devil, the scrutinies, and the handing over of the baptismal Creed.
