    Abstract: The aim of this paper is to present the theological-pastoral thinking of Cyprian of Carthage, especially in the field of charitable work. The focus here is his main work De opere et eleemosynis, as well as other works that touch on the subject at hand (Epistulae, Vita Cypriani, etc.). Heeding his historical context, the aim is to point out Cyprian‘s attitude, motives, and reasons for the necessity of carrying out acts of mercy – primarily in the form of almsgiving. This study will follow his theological justifications and their subsequent incorporation into pastoral practice with a clear vision of reward in this earthly life, but above all for the acquisition of eternal life. In his main work, Cyprian does not offer speculative theology, but rather writes as a bishop who is immersed in pastoral activity in Carthage, where he perceives very carefully, among other things, also the social aspect in the social and religious situation of the third century.
