Tertullian and the Christian Theology of Peace

As an important representative of the emerging Christian Theology, Tertulian is famous for his particular way of dealing with some specific themes of the Christian kerygma: Trinity, Salvation, Church, Scriptures. In this paper I’m underlining his opinion on violence and warfare as one of the most Bible-minded perspective on the issue. His disagreement with the political suported violence in the form of warfare is very important from de perspective of the future developments of the issue in the post-constantinian Fathers. This means that finally, the interpretation of the Church concerning the theology of peace cannot be simply identified with Terullian’s perspective as the situation of the Church itself changed during the ages to follow.
