The Early Christian Apologists Aristides, St. Justin the Philosopher (and Martyr) and Athenagoras in the Contemporary World


Yulian Velikov

Abstract:

The study of the early Christian period provides an opportunity for outlining the way in which the Holy Fathers and Church Writers address the pagan and Jewish anti-Christian argumentation. This article brings into focus the works of three Christian apologists – Aristides, Saint Justin the Philosopher (and Martyr), and Athenagoras whose approach in defending Christianity during the 2nd century is to be seen as a different route to reaching the solution of the same apologetic equation – the defence of the Christian faith.

Keywords:

Early Christian apologetics (2nd century), Aristides, Saint Justin the Philosopher (and Martyr), Athenagoras.
