A subject that transcends time, the apocryphal correspondence between Seneca and the Apostle Paul continues to represent a neverending controversy. This is due to the dimension of the topic acquired over time, the breadth of interpretations and the ongoing analysis of the Letters. The present article makes an introduction that brings the reader up to date with the issue, after which, gradually, brings his attention to a synthesis of the correspondence between the two and introduces him to the historical, philological, philosophical and humanistic problems that arise from each letter independently.
