Religious Figure
    Born in Nabulas, Israel
    Church Father, canonized saint and early Christian martyr
    Author of 'Apology' and 'Dialogue with Trypho'
    Beheaded in Rome circa 165 AD
    Born in modern day Israel and referred to himself as a Samaritan but is believed to be of either Greek or Roman ancestry
    In the past, many works have been ascribed to him but now only two works, 'Apology' and 'Dialogue with Trypho,' are.
    He was one of the poorer writers among the Church Fathers.
    Some of his stuff sounds anti-semitic.
    He believed that Socrates and Heraclitus were Christians, reasoning that Christianity was the truth and they sought truth therefore they were Christians.
    He was well versed in philosophy, especially the Stoics and Platonists, but turned to Christianity when he found the wisdom of men inadequate.
    He was attracted to the morality of the early Christians and their courage in facing martyrdom.
    He sought to establish a bond between Christianity and philosophy and did not see a conflict between the two.
    He used the Scriptures superbly in his writings.
    He opened his own school in Rome, teaching his reconciliation between theology and philosophy.
    He died bravely for his beliefs.
    Unlike many of the clergy of today, he was never involved in any type of scandal.
