Tertullian (c. 160-220 CE)
Church Father and one of the first major Christian theologians to write in
Latin. Known for the dictim credo
quia absurdum est (literally, I believe because it is absurd),
he has often been viewed as promoting an irrationalistic approach to religious
truth. By way of assent to paradoxical statements, he sharply opposed things
that can be known only by faith over against reason.
He is also recognized as the first important theologian to think of the
Trinity as one substance in three persons.
