Q&A: Church Fathers

Church Fathers

Question

How do we refer to Christian authors like Justin Martyr, Irenaeus, Eusebius, and Tertullian?

Answer

All these men could be labelled under the broad category of "Church Fathers," the somewhat narrower category of "Early Church Fathers," and the even narrower category of "Early Apologists."
