Aristides

Apology
(ca. 125 A.D.)


Aristides was a Christian apologist living in Athens. His Apology seems to have been written around 125 A.D. and presented to Emperor Hadrian after a Christian persecution occasioned by Hadrian's initiation into the Eleusinian Mysteries. Jerome considered him to be an "eloquent philosopher."

Now the Christians trace their origin from the Lord Jesus Christ. And He is acknowledged by the Holy Spirit to be the son of the Most High God, who came down from heaven for the salvation of men.(Apology, 2).

For they know God, the Creator and Fashioner of all things through the only-begotten son and the Holy Spirit, and beside Him they worship no other God. (Apology 15).
