Tertuliano

Data de nascimento: 155
Data de falecimento: 220
Outros nomes: Tertullianus

Tertuliano foi um prolífico autor das primeiras fases do Cristianismo, nascido em Cartago na província romana da África Proconsular. Ele foi o primeiro autor cristão a produzir uma obra literária em latim. Ele também foi um notável apologista cristão e um polemista contra a heresia.

Ele organizou e avançou a nova teologia da Igreja antiga. Ele é talvez mais famoso por ser o autor mais antigo cuja obra sobreviveu a utilizar o termo "Trindade" [a] e por nos dar a mais antiga exposição formal ainda existente sobre a teologia trinitária. É um dos Padres latinos.

Algumas das ideias de Tertuliano não eram aceitáveis para os ortodoxos e, no fim de sua vida, ele se tornou um montanista. Wikipedia

„We worship unity in trinity, and trinity in unity; neither confounding the person nor dividing the substance.“

—  Tertullian

As quoted in Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895) edited by Josiah Hotchkiss Gilbert, p. 285
Contexto: We worship unity in trinity, and trinity in unity; neither confounding the person nor dividing the substance. There is one person of the Father, another of the Son, and another of the Holy Ghost; but the Godhead of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, is all one; the glory equal, the majesty co-eternal.
