Tatian, Theophilus of Antioch, and Irenaeus of Lyons were early Christian authors who wrote works in Greek during the second half of the second century CE (between ca. 170 and 185). They had a working knowledge of a range of ancient philosophical positions, with which they critically engaged. As Christians, they also subjected what they termed 'Greek wisdom' to a more fundamental critique. At the same time they saw themselves as philosophers and displayed ambitions to develop philosophical approaches of their own in the areas of doctrine of God, cosmogony, anthropology and ethics. This book chapter offers an introduction to these themes in the context of a companion to early Christian philosophy.
