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

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.
