Despite the fact that he did not write a systematic theology, Tertullian remains one of the most studied early Christian theologians, and some have even called him the first Protestant. After converting to Christianity in the year 197, he became a formidable defender of the faith, and later became known for his many writings, most notably Apologeticus and Ad Nationes. This particular site is maintained by Roger Pearse, who graduated from Merton College at Oxford, and consistently adds new and informative material to the site. Tertullian neophytes will want to read the brief overview of his life provided here, and then perhaps continue on to one of the full-text translations of his many works provided here. The site also contains a fine set of bibliographies, translations, and the "wit and wisdom" of Tertullian.
