Italics in the text by John Wijngaards. Tertullian was a lay theologian in Carthage, North Africa. His sincerity as a convert wasn mixed with moral rigorism and an uncompromising stand against worldly standards. This led him to leave the Church and join the Montanists in 210 AD, and later to found his own sect. Note. Encyclopedia Britannica Here are select passages that demonstrate what Tertullian thought about women.
  • Every woman carries the curse of Eve, as originator of sin. Woman is a source of temptation Among heretics, women teach, dispute, heal and, perhaps, baptize Women may not teach, baptize or take on the priestly ministry ... It is better for a man not to marry, because it is tainted with concupiscence

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Quintus Septimius Florens Tertullian, the first great writer of Latin Christianity and one of the grandest and most original characters of the ancient Church, was born at Carthage about A.D. 150 or 160, and died there between 220 and 240.
    I. Life
    Of his life very little is known, and that little is based upon passing references in his own writings, and upon Eusebius of Caesarea Hist. eccl., II, ii. 4, and Jerome De viris illustribus, On famous men ) chapter 53. His father held a position ( centurio proconsularis, "aide-de-camp") in the Roman army in Africa, and Tertullian's Punic blood palpably pulsates in his style, with its archaisms or provincialisms, its glowing imagery, its passionate temper. He was a scholar, having received an excellent education. He wrote at least three books in Greek, to which he himself refers; but none of these are extant. His principal study was jurisprudence, and his methods of reasoning reveal striking marks of his juridical training. He shone among the advocates of Rome, as Eusebius reports. His conversion to Christianity took place about 197-198 (so Harnack, Bonwetsch, and others), but its immediate antecedents are unknown except as they are conjectured from his writings. The event must have been sudden and decisive, transforming at once his own personality; he himself said that he could not imagine a truly Christian life without such a conscious breach, a radical act of conversion: "Christians are made, not born" (

    Excerpts from the Original Electronic Text at the web site of New Advent's Father's of the Church.
    The following excerpts contain Tertullian's two most famous expressions: "what has Athens to do with Jerusalem" and it is "to be believed because it is absurd." Both expressions occurred in the context of a polemical war of words against "heretics" and perhaps give an exaggerated sense of Tertullian's distrust of the role of reason in religion. Nevertheless, they capture the essence of a Christianity grounded in faith and acutely aware that the vital tenets of Christian faith transcended reason, appearing irrational to natural reason.
    Prescription Against Heretics Chapter 1
    Introduction: Heresies Must Exist, and Even Abound. THE character of the times in which we live is such as to call forth from us even this admonition, that we ought not to be astonished at the heresies (which abound) neither ought their existence to surprise us, for it was foretold that they should come to pass; nor the fact that they subvert the faith of some, for their final cause is, by affording a trial to faith, to give it also the opportunity of being "approved." Groundless, therefore, and inconsiderate is the offence of the many who are scandalized by the very fact that heresies prevail to such a degree. How great (might their offence have been) if they had not existed. When it has been determined that a thing must by all means be, it receives the (final) cause for which it has its being. This secures the power through which it exists, in such a way that it is impossible for it not to have existence. . . .

    Excerpts from the Original Electronic Text at the web site of New Advent Church Fathers.
    To the Martyrs Chapter 1 Blessed martyrs elect, along with the nourishment for the body which our Lady Mother the Church from her breast, as well as individual brethren from their private resources, furnish you in prison, accept also from me some offering that will contribute to the sustenance of the spirit. For it is not good that the flesh be feasted while the spirit goes hungry. Indeed, if care is bestowed on that which is weak, there is all the more reason not to neglect that which is still weaker. (2) Not that I am specially entitled to exhort you. Yet, even the most accomplished gladiators are spurred on not only by their trainers and managers but also from afar by people inexperienced in this art and by all who choose, without the slightest need for it, with the result that hints issuing from the crowd have often proved profitable for them (3) In the first place, then, O blessed, 'do not grieve the Holy Spirit who has entered prison with you. For, if He had not accompanied you there in your present trial, you would not be there today. See to it, therefore, that He remain with you there and so lead you out of that place to the Lord. (4) Indeed, the prison is the Devil's house too, where he keeps his household. But you have come to the prison for the very purpose of trampling upon him right in his own house. For you have engaged him in battle already outside the prison and trampled him underfoot.

    c.162 - c.224
    North African Theologian
    Tertullian was an important early Christian theologian, and author of Latin theological phrases that were significant in the West for the next thousand years. Tertullian worked as a jurist in Rome, converted to Christianity after his return to Carthage, and became a leader of the African Church. He wrote works in defense of the faith ('Apologeticum') and he helped establish Latin - rather than Greek - as ecclesiastical language in the West. In his later years Tertullian became dissatisfied with the laxity of contemporary Christians and he joined the movement of Montanism (from the prophet Montanus), which demanded a strict moralism and preached the imminent end of the world.

Tertullian of Carthage (Quintus Septimius Florens Terullianus, b. 155 - 160 Carthage - d. 220? AD). Like many of his time, Tertullian in De Spectaculis rejected the theatrical performance in the name of religion. Religious drama and music was dangerous because the performers knew neither the nature of the God nor His Adversary who took advantage of ritual to steal in. As with most of the ancient writers and even the Bible, music for personal comfort or praise was held harmless. However, when it was performed in a religious sense it was considered idolatrous and effeminate. All footnotes have been integrated into the text.

    Tertullian - Trinity - The Apology
    That which has come forth out of God is at once God and the Son of God , and the two are one. In this way also, as He is Spirit of Spirit and God of God, He is made a second in manner of existence-in position not in nature . [Great diversity exists among the critics as to the date of this Apology; see Kaye, pp. xvi. 48, 65. Mosheim says, a.d. 198, Kaye a.d. 204.] To Tertullian, the "trinity" is God , His Reason and the Word as an expression of that Reason. Because God is pure Spirit, all which He does as Father is Spirit. That which extends from Spirit into flesh is the Son. Tertullian does not think of three, separated persons in the Godhead! The Catholic Encyclopedia notes that: In Scripture there is as yet no single term by which the Three Divine Persons are denoted together. The word trias (of which the Latin trinitas is a translation) is first found in Theophilus of Antioch about A. D. 180. He speaks of "the Trinity of God [the Father ], His Word and His Wisdom ("Ad. Autol.", II, 15). [Of course, Theophilus used the word

[THE WORK BEGINS AS A FRAGMENT.] Of which heretics I will (to pass by a good deal) summarize some few particulars. For of Judaism's heretics I am silentDositheus the Samaritan, I mean, who was the first who had the hardihood to repudiate the prophets, on the ground that they had not spoken under inspiration of the Holy Spirit. Of the Sadducees I am silent, who, springing from the root of this error, had the hardihood to adjoin to this heresy the denial likewise of the resurrection of the flesh. The Pharisees I pretermit, who were "divided" from the Jews by their superimposing of certain additaments to the law, which fact likewise made them worthy of receiving this very name; and, together with them, the Herodians likewise, who said that Herod was Christ. To those I betake myself who have chosen to make the gospel the starting-point of their heresies. Of these the first of all is Simon Magus, who in the Acts of the Apostles earned a condign and just sentence from the Apostle Peter. He had the hardihood to call himself the Supreme Virtue, that is, the Supreme God; and moreover, (to assert) that the universe had been originated by his angels; that he had descended in quest of an erring daemon, which was Wisdom; that, in a phantasmal semblance of God, he had not suffered among the Jews, but was as if he had suffered.

    tertullian ON FASTING Andrew McGowan Introduction. If anything, tertullianis too good a source on fasting, as enthusiastic theorist
    Andrew McGowan Introduction If anything, Tertullian is too good a source on fasting, as enthusiastic theorist of an ascetic tendency within the Carthaginian Church. In the treatise devoted specifically to this subject he over-argues and over-explains fasting, describing not so much a world of asceticism as one of its poles. The passing comments are often as revealing, or more so, than the detailed invective. It is possible nonetheless to use both the polemical and the incidental references in his writings as sources for partial reconstruction of the ascetic dietary practices of the Christian community in Carthage, bearing in mind that they, like the Church itself, involved considerable diversity. Taken as a whole, these writings yield information on a variety of issues regarding fasting practice: communal fasts in time of drought, pre-baptismal and penitential fasting, the relationship between fasting and eucharist, and specific customs or bodily practices associated with undertaking individual fasts (kissing, kneeling). Although the development of Tertullian’s Montanist tendencies led to increased focus on the contrasts between ascetic practices common to the rest of the Church community (the "psychics") and those associated with the New Prophecy, there is no radical disjuncture between the picture given in earlier and later treatises, other than the uniquely fulsome rhetoric of On Fasting . The Ad Scapulam (4.6), among Tertullian’s latest works, gives information similar to that of the

    57. Tertullian And Jewish Baptism
    tertullian'S THEOLOGY AND JEWISH BAPTISM A profound ambivalence characterizestertullian's attitudes towards Jews and Judaism.
    Claudia Setzer, Manhattan College
    A profound ambivalence characterizes Tertullian's attitudes towards Jews and Judaism. His hostile remarks about Jews are well-known. He calls the Jews "the seed-plot of all the calumny against us" ( Nat. 1.14.1, CCSL 1.32-33)[1] and calls the synagogues "fountains of persecution" ( Scorp. 10.10, CCSL 2.1089). Yet he emphasizes the closeness of Judaism and Christianity when it suits him ( Apol. 16.11, 19.2, 21.1), defends Christianity against pagan attacks by defending Judaism ( Apol. 16.3), and justifies Christian practice by likening it to Jewish practice. Nor does he simply superimpose biblical history on contemporary Jews. He knows the difference between Biblical Israel and contemporary Jews since he makes a point of distinguishing them.[2] Tertullian and other North African Christians reject Judaism with one hand, while pulling it towards them with the other.[3] A representative example of this mixed feeling towards Jews and Judaism is Tertullian's discussion of baptism.

    10. But if you transfer the charge of wrongdoing from the man's account to the devil's, because it was he who incited the man to sin, and if you hope by this means to direct the blame against the Creator, as having created the devilfor, "He maketh angels spirits" [Ps 104:4] (I answer that) that which he was made by God, namely an angel, will be the responsibility of God who made him, while that which he was not made by God, namely the devil or accuserit follows that he must have made himself that by bringing an accusation about God, a false one at that, first that God had forbidden them to eat of every tree, and next that if they did eat they would not die, and thirdly that God had selfishly denied them divinity. What then was the origin of this malice of lying and deceit directed against man and woman, and of the false accusation against God? Certainly it was not from God, for in common with all his works he had made that angel good. In fact until he became the devil he is declared the wisest of all: and I suppose the wisdom is no evil. Also if you turn up Ezekiel's prophecy you will easily perceive that that angel was by creation good, and by his own act became corrupt. [Ezek 28:11-16] In the person of the prince of Tyre this pronouncement is made against the devil:

    General Information Quintus Septimius Florens Tertullianus, b. Carthage, c.155, d. after 220, was one of the greatest Western theologians and writers of Christian antiquity. Through his writings a witness to the doctrine and discipline of the early church in belief and worship is preserved. An advocate in the law courts in Rome, Tertullian converted (c.193) to Christianity. About 207 he broke with the church and joined the Montanists (see Montanism) in Africa. Soon after, however, he broke with them and formed his own party, known as the Tertullianists. An extremist by nature, he had gone through a period of licentiousness during his early years, but later he advocated a severe asceticism and discipline that his followers found hard to emulate.

    Tertullian was a man of fiery temperament, great talent, and unrelenting purpose. He wrote with brilliant rhetoric and biting satire. His passion for truth led him into polemics with his enemies: in turn pagans, Jews, heretics, and Catholics. His admiration for Christian heroism under persecution seems to have been the strongest factor in his conversion. Tertullian's writings, notably Apologeticum, De praescriptione haereticorum, and De carne Christi, had a lasting effect on Christian thought, especially through those who, like Cyprian of Carthage, always regarded him as a "master." He also greatly influenced the development of Western thought and the creation of Christian ecclesiastical Latin.

    Contender For God

    Tertullian was born around A.D. 150 in the city of Carthage in North Africa. Both of his parents were pagan, and his father was a centurion. Tertullian received a thorough education in the knowledge of the Romans and the Greeks, and he apparently practiced law before his conversion. His writings indicate that he did not become a Christian until he was in his thirties or forties.
    However, once Tertullian gave his life to Christ, he held nothing back. Like Paul, he viewed all of his worldly education and social rank as "dung" in relation to the things of Christ. At the same time, he used his vast learning in the cause of Christ. At the risk of his life, he wrote several works to the Romans, defending Christianity and attempting to persuade the authorities to halt their senseless persecution.
    Tertullian apparently served as an elder or presbyter in Carthage, completely devoting his life to the ministry of Christ. Not only did he write apologetic works to the Romans, but he also composed a considerable number of writings in which he defended orthodox Christianity against various heretics. In other writings, he attacked the growing spiritual laxity he saw developing in the church.
    The New Testament was written in Greek, and up until the time of Tertullian nearly all other Christian works had likewise been written in Greek. Although Tertullian was fluent in Greek and wrote several works in Greek, he penned most of his works in Latinin order to benefit the growing number of western Christians who knew only Latin. As a result, Tertullian often had to develop Latin terminology to express the truths that had previously been presented primarily in the Greek language. The most famous of his newly coined terms was the word "Trinity," which has become a standard term in the Christian vocabulary.
