This work contains

1. The Divine Institutions (Divinarum Institutionum Libri VII), written between 303 and 311. This is the most important of the writings of Lactantius. As an apologetic treatise it was intended to point out the futility of pagan beliefs and to establish the reasonableness and truth of Christianity as a response to pagan critics. It was also the first attempt at a systematic exposition of Christian theology in Latin.

2. De Ira Dei ("On the Wrath of God"), directed against the Stoics and Epicureans, dealing with anthropomorphic deities.

3. The Phoenix (De phoenice carmen) tells the story of the : death and rebirth of that mythical bird. That poem in turn appears to have been the principal source for the famous Anglo-Saxon poem to which the modern title The Phoenix is given.

4. De opificio dei vel formatione hominis medical treatise preserving the views of the time on embryology, gynaecology, anatomy and physiology, mentioning the determination of sex, the origin of semen,

5. De resurrectione Christi. Wrongly ascribed to Lactantius, but in faxt written by Venantius Honorius Clementianus Fortunatus (c.530–c.600/609), a Latin poet and hymnodist, and a Bishop of the early Catholic Church
