Tertullian ca. A. D. 155 - ca. 220
Tertullian wrote many theological
treatises, of which 31 have survived. In his various works he strove
either to defend Christianity, to refute heresy, or to argue some
practical point of morality or church discipline. Tertullian influenced
the later church fathers, especially Saint
Cyprian—and through them, all Christian theologians of the West.
His writings demonstrate a profound knowledge of Greek and Latin
literature. He was the first writer in Latin to formulate Christian
theological concepts, such as the nature of the Trinity.
