This is an apologetics classic which - in the 2nd century AD - clarified many of the beliefs we take for granted - and is the Early Church's battleground against the Gnostics. We can also thank Iranaeus for fighting for the present books of the New and Old Testaments when these were under attack.

Tertullian called St Iranaeus "a curious explorer of all kinds of learning" who sets out the doctrines of the main dissident sects of the 2nd century and then contrasts them with the words of Scripture and the teachings of the Apostles.

"Irenaeus wrote in Greek many works which have secured for him an exceptional place in Christian literatur"--Catholic Encyclopedia "Every time I read anything from this great writing, I have to wonder if Irenaeus was a prophet"--OPious Fabrications Blogspot (Dec 30 2009)

"He asserted the validity of the two testaments at a time when concern for the unity and the difference between the two parts of the Bible was developing." - Encyclopedia Brittanica
