Quadratus of Athens, Bishop

Today we commemorate Quadratus. Quadratus is said to have been the first Christian apologist. He was bishop of Athens from 125-129. Fragments of his writings still are available on-line. He wrote:

"Our Saviour’s works, moreover, were always present: for they were real, consisting of those who had been healed of their diseases, those who had been raised from the dead; who were not only seen whilst they were being healed and raised up, but were afterwards constantly present. Nor did they remain only during the sojourn of the Saviour on earth, but also a considerable time after His departure; and, indeed, some of them have survived even down to our own times."
