Arator, the Roman sub-deacon was no exception. His Historica Apostolica - a commentary in verse on the Acts of the Apostles, written in Rome in AD 54 - is a work of historical importance. Written at a time of crisis, politically and theologically, it is of interest as propaganda for a papacy under threat from Constantinople.

But Arators concentration on baptismal themes offers evidence of the transmission of exegetical ideas in late antiquity.
