Abstract Gregory of Elvira's indebtedness to the Latin patristic tradition has been copiously documented. However, until now no scholar has been able to prove that he worked from Lactantius. This article adduces two clear reminiscences of Lactantius in Gregory's homilies, one of which is the only extended quotation from the De ira Dei to surface in all of Latin patristic literature.
