Quintus Septimius Florens Tertullianus bol rímsky právnik, cirkevný otec a spisovateľ.

Vystupoval v Ríme ako rečník na súdoch. Po prijatí kresťanstva sa okolo roku 195 vrátil späť do Kartága. Neskôr sa zblížil s montanistami a dostal sa do rozporu s cirkvou. Zdá sa, že na konci života založil zvláštnu sektu tertulliáncov.

Tertillianovo myslenie sa vyznačovalo tendenciou k paradoxom. Opovrhoval všetkým „pohanským“, osobitne pri svojej prenikavej kritike gréckej filozofie. Podľa Tertulliana je všetko skutočné telesné, aj Boh. Z taktických dôvodov obhajoval náboženskú slobodu.

Tertulianus odmieta filozofiu . S istou dávkou provokácie však zdôrazňuje absurdnosť kresťanskej viery, ak ju posudzujeme z hľadiska pojmového myslenia. Výrok Verím, pretože je to nezmyselné sa síce Tertullianovi len pripisuje, ale výstižne vyjadruje jeho základný postoj.

Citáty Quintus Septimius Florens Tertullianus

„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.

„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

„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

„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 multiply whenever we are mown down by you; the blood of Christians is seed.“

—  Tertullian
Apologeticus, 50, s. 13 Often quoted as ‘The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the church.’ Variant translation: As often as we are mown down by you, the more we grow in numbers; the blood of the Christians is the seed. Another common translation is "The blood of the Martyrs is the seed of Christians."
