Sorry, this item is now out of stock.

Irenaeus of Lyons (c.130-200) represents an important stage in the development of Christian orthodoxy: largely eschewing original thought (which was likely to lead to heresy), he attacked the followers of 'agnostic' worldviews and brought together the teachings of the Church as expressed by earlier theologians. Minns discusses the evidence for Irenaeus's life and milieu, outlines the literary structure of his surviving works and explains both his theology and his understanding of the nature of tradition.
