Irenic Irenaeus – Episode 51
Having concluded their study of Against Heresies by St. Irenaeus of Lyons, Marcus Grodi and Msgr. Jeffrey Steenson look at some other fragments and writings of St. Irenaeus.
They focus on St. Irenaeus’ role as peacemaker, looking to resolve conflicts in the Church. From his letters and notes, we learn more about the kind of leader St. Irenaeus was: a man who deeply sought after Christ. They also look at how successive generations of Christians interpreted the writings of St. Irenaeus in the years following his death.
