These treatises date from the last third of the second century. Athenagoras of Athens belonged to that select group of Christian laymen known as the Apologists, who supported the successors of the Apostles in the ministry of the faith by defending that faith and pleading for a just hearing before the pagan majority and pagan overlords.
