Episode Info

Episode Info: By the mid-second century, pagans were leveling many accusations concerning Christianity. In addition to the outlandish claims of cannibalism, certain pagans had begun to allege that Jews and Christians were unable to provide any reasons for what they believed about Moses and Christ. In response to the accusation that Christianity was hostile toward reason, the Catechetical School of Alexandria was formed. In today’s episode we talk a little bit about the early founders and teachers of the school, noting their objectives, writings and cultural achievements. Join us today as we continue our discussion about second-century Christianity.   To comment on this show or provide feedback, please navigate to The Catholic Heritage is devoted to helping Catholic Christians better understand the history, teachings and culture of their Catholic faith so that they can better love and serve Christ, the Church and their neighbors.
