Citáty Quintus Septimius Florens Tertullianus

„Čím více nás kosíte, tím více je nás. Krev [mučedníků] je semenem křesťanů.“

—  Quintus Septimius Florens Tertullianus, kniha Apologeticus
(la) Plures efficimur, quotiens metimur a vobis: semen est sanguis Christianorum. Source: Apologeticum, 50.

„Man is one name belonging to every nation upon earth. In them all is one soul though many tongues.“

—  Tertullian
Context: Man is one name belonging to every nation upon earth. In them all is one soul though many tongues. Every country has its own language, yet the subjects of which the untutored soul speaks are the same everywhere. De Testimonio Animae (The Testimony of the Soul), 6.3

„It is to be believed because it is absurd.“

—  Tertullian
Variant translations It is by all means to be believed, because it is absurd. It is is entirely credible, because it is inept. It is certain because it is impossible. De Carne Christi 5.4 Often paraphrased or misquoted as "Credo quia absurdum." Also paraphrased as "It is so extraordinary that it must be true." Two lines from De Carne Christi have often become conflated into the statement: "Credo quia impossibile" (I believe it because it is impossible), which can be perceived as a distortion of the actual arguments that Tertullian was making.

„You can judge the quality of their faith from the way they behave. Discipline is an index to doctrine.“

—  Tertullian
Context: Notorious, too, are the dealings of heretics with swarms of magicians and charlatans and astrologers and philosophers — all, of course, devotees of speculation. You can judge the quality of their faith from the way they behave. Discipline is an index to doctrine. The Prescriptions Against the Heretics as translated by Stanley Lawrence Greenslade, in Early Latin Theology: Selections from Tertullian, Cyprian, Ambrose, and Jerome (1956), p. 63

„We worship unity in trinity, and trinity in unity; neither confounding the person nor dividing the substance.“

—  Tertullian
Context: We worship unity in trinity, and trinity in unity; neither confounding the person nor dividing the substance. There is one person of the Father, another of the Son, and another of the Holy Ghost; but the Godhead of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, is all one; the glory equal, the majesty co-eternal. As quoted in Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895) edited by Josiah Hotchkiss Gilbert, p. 285

„We are but of yesterday, and yet we have filled all the places that belong to you — cities, islands, forts, towns, exchanges; the military camps themselves, tribes, town councils, the palace, the senate, the market-place; we have left you nothing but your temples.“

—  Tertullian
Esterni sumus, & vestra omnia implevimus, Vrbes, Insulas, Castella, Municipia, Conciliabula, Castra ipsa, Tribus, Decurias, palatium, Senatum, Forum, sola vobis relinquimus Templa. Tertullian's Plea For Allegiance, A.2

„See, they say, how they love one another, for themselves are animated by mutual hatred; how they are ready even to die for one another, for they themselves will sooner put to death.“

—  Tertullian
Apologeticus pro Christianis, Vide, inquiunt, ut invicem se diligant; ipsi enim invicem oderunt: et ut pro alterutro mori sint parati; ipsi enim ad occidendum alterutrum paratiores erunt. Chapter 39, describing how Christianity is mocked by its enemies.
