Abstract: Lactantius, Christian rhetoric from the North of the Africa, is one of the most important witnesses of the moment between the end of the third century and the beginning of the fourth century. His works, specifically the De ira Dei and De mortibus persecutorum are a register of theological, philosophical disputations and some events of his time. Influenced by the idea of Providence, in case, for the Genesis, Exodus, Numbers and the book of Josue, for the idea of Providence, History and memory from Israelis , Lactantius builds his ideas about the Providence of God and a History and a memory to the Christians in De ira and De mort. works. Despite the importance of two works, we don t find indications that any historian did a study about the construction of the and how works the Providence of God in De ira and it application in De mort. This is the core of our research, the construction and the explanation how works the Providence of God in De ira the dispute with Epicurus of Samos about the existence of the Providence and it application in the De mort. work, specifically in the political world of the Roman Empire in History (trajectory) of Christians , until the establishment of a new political order, when of the victory of Constantine on Maxentius, in 312. The History (trajectory) of Christians gives elements to the edification of a memory, being the memory the conscience who was in the past and who is in the present. The memory of Christians gives elements to the construction of an identity, being identity three points: a) positive definition of yourself; b) negative definition given to the other and c) dependence between the positive the identity and the negative the difference . The Christian is the positive the identity and the pagan is the negative the difference . As for methodology, our foundation is Régine Robin. According to the principles developed by the author, we analyse words and expressions in De ira and De mort. works, revealing meanings, at the first moment, hidden. Finally, our intention, through the study of the construction and the explanation of how the Providence works in De ira and it application in the political world of the Roman Empire in De mort., is to contribute to the best religious and political understanding of the end of the third century and beginning of the fourth century.
