About Irenaeus of Lyons

Irenaeus of Lyons (AD 130–202) was bishop of Lyon in Gaul. He was an early Church Father and apologist. His work played a key role in forming Christian theology. Unlike many of his contemporaries, Irenaeus was born into a Christian family. He was a priest at Lyons and became bishop after Pothinus was martyred. Most of his writing is directed against the Gnostic heretics. He is recognized as a Saint by both the Roman Catholic and Orthodox churches.
