Ep. 14—Tertullian: Who Forged Words and Invented Freedoms
This is a listener-supported podcast! Thanks for your help!
Thank Tertullian of Carthage for his role in forming a distinctively western Christianity. He gave us words in our own language to express the inexpressible: words like Trinity and Sacrament. He also introduced the world to the idea of freedom of conscience. Our civilization rests on his ideas.
Tertullian, To Scapula
