Category: History

Irenaeus, Bishop of Lyon, was a disciple of Polycarp of Smyrna, who himself was taught by the Apostle John. Irenaeus is probably the most read and quoted pre-Augustinian Church Father, whose two surviving works teach us much about the world of second century Christianity, as well as giving insights into theological issues and Christian identity today.
