Comments: Bibliotheca Patrum Ecclesiasticorum Latinorum Selecta... curante E.G. Gersdorf, volumes IV-VII. Pars I: Libri Apologetici. Pars II: Libri ad Ritus et Mores Christianorum Pertinentes. Pars III & IV: Libri Polemici et Dogmatici. Tertullian was the third century A.D. Latin ecclesiastical writer who virtually created Christian Latin literature, and is the earliest Christian apologist of the Western church. Some of his treatises, especially Adversus Hermogenes and De Anima are concerned primarily with philosophical themes. "Tertullian's importance... lies in his mediation of earlier conceptions, Christian and pagan alike, and in his translation of Greek ideas into Latin". Brunet V 729.
