(2nd cent.),

Apologist. His ‘Apology’ or ‘Supplication’, addressed c.177 to Marcus Aurelius and his son, sought to rebut the current calumnies against the Christians, namely atheism, Thyestian banquets, and Oedipean incest. A treatise ‘On the Resurrection’ is ascribed to him, but this attribution has been challenged.

Subjects: Christianity.
