Ignatius of Antioch was a first-century early-Christian writer and bishop. While on his way to Rome, Ignatius wrote a series of letters, similar in nature to the Biblical Epistles of Saint Paul. These letters, many of which have sense been attributed to other authors, are a prime example of early church theology and address important topics such as the role and responsibility of church leaders, study of the church, and holy sacraments. Ignatius is believed to be the first to use the term ‘catholic church’ in writing. Ignatius was seeking to counter many people who were making claims of Docetism and heresies.

  • Trallians
  • Magnesians
