Tertullian, the Treatise Against Hermogenes

Tertullian, the Treatise Against Hermogenes

by Walter J. Burghardt
     
 

Hermogenes was still living when Carthage's native son took up his pen to oppose him; but that did not make Tertullian�s polemic more considerate, or his satire less passionate and biting. Hermogenes taught a form of materialism. Tertullian brilliantly convicts him of contradiction.  See more details below
