PAPACY: The Poem Against Marcion


#1

I’ve read that there was a poem, ca. 200 A.D., that references the chair of Peter. I cannot seem to find the text of this. Anyone have a link?


#2

Have a look at this. The “Poem” consists of 5 books.

#3

The “chair” seems to be first mentioned in Book III, line 360.


#4

Proven spurious writing…
compare his lineage in de Præscr., c. xxxii.,


#5

I’m not sure what your sentence means…but I understand the authorship may be spurious, not the antiquity of the text.


#6

Take a peek at the prescriptions against heretics chapter 32…Which is a verified text of Tertullian, this “peom” is in obvious contradiction to that, thereby nullifying its validity.


#7

Nullifying its validity as what? Tertullian’s? Or are you saying it is never existed?


#8

Tertullians.


#9

Ok, I don’t think anyone is disagreeing with that. It may well not be his document. :thumbsup:


#10

On most accounts dated 420-490 c.e.
