Description

Champion of martyrs, scourge of heretics, erudite theologian, shrewd politician—no account of early Christianity is complete without careful consideration of Irenaeus of Lyons. Here a team of international scholars examines aspects of the saint’s life, historical context, engagement with scripture, and his ecclesiastical and theological legacy for succeeding generations.

Endorsements

"This wide-ranging collection of essays will refine many detailed aspects of the scholarly reception of Irenaeus, but at the same time is calculated to provide something of a comprehensive overview. This will make it indispensable to the serious student who seeks to grasp the significance of one often dubbed 'the first Christian theologian'."
—Frances Young
Emeritus Professor of Theology, University of Birmingham
 
"A badly needed contemporary collection of essays on various historical, textual, and theological aspects of the often cited and too little understood Irenaeus of Lyons. The variety of perspectives creates a lively volume, and the extensive bibliography, including editions of Irenaeus' writings, make it essential."
Rebecca Lyman
Church Divinity School of the Pacific
 
"Sara Parvis and Paul Foster have collected in one volume an eloquent and timely testimony to the perennial vitality of Irenaeus’s vision. Their book masterfully situates Irenaeus in a multiplicity of contexts: historical, scriptural, and theological."
Khaled Anatolios
Boston College School of Theology and Ministry
