St. Irenaeus, one of the most important Church Fathers of the 2nd century AD.

St. Irenaeus was bishop of Lyons, in Southern France,  though it is thought that he grew up in Smyrna, in modern-day Turkey. There  St.Irenaeus had personal contact with St. Polycarp, one of the Apostolic Fathers who in turn knew the Apostle John, son of Zebedee.

 

 

Before becoming bishop, Saint Irenaeus  studied in Rome where he was influenced by St. Justin Martyr. His major writing, Against Heresies, (185 AD), exposed the absurdities of the Gnostic cults of the day and included a strong presentation and defense of Catholic Christianity. It is the earliest spectrum  of Christian theology surviving from ancient times and is the first work that cites virtually every book of the Christian writings that we now call the New Testament.
