About Tertullian; Tertullian, full name Quintus Septimus Florens Tertullianus, c. 155 – c. 240 AD, was a prolific Early Christian author from Carthage in the Roman province of Africa. Of Berber... More > origin, he was the first Christian author to produce an extensive corpus of Latin Christian literature. He also was an early Christian apologist and a polemicist against heresy, including contemporary Christian Gnosticism.

Our readers may thus at the same time be entertained by the most charming fictions which fancy has ever created, and put in possession of information indispensable to every one who would read with intelligence the elegant literature of his own day.< Less
THE LEGENDS OF THE JEWS (1909) By LOUIS GINZBERG TRANSLATED BY HENRIETTA SZOLD

More > actually opposed to it. Such observers held that the Jewish nation ceased to exist with the moment when its political independence was destroyed. For them the Judaism of the later epoch has been a Judaism of the Synagogue, the spokesmen of which have been the scholars, the Rabbis.

Poetic phantasmagoria, frequently the vaporings of morbid visionaries, is the material out of which these scholars construct the theologic system of the Rabbis, and fairy tales, the spontaneous creations of the people, which take the form of sacred legend in Jewish literature,< Less
