When did the CC stop teaching Peter was a bishop of Rome? Documents please…
None of them were liars but Ambrose was mistaken. He believed the mytholodgy invented in the third century.
He (Irenaeus) is repeating legends and myths just as you are. Modern scholars know better. The reason I say the same is because you keep asserting the same thing.
Wait a minute? I thought it was INVENTED in the 3rd century as a MYTH & LEGEND? Now you add Irenaeus who said the following in 180AD? Which one is it? Third or before? But MODERN scholars know better? Definitely not Math!
St Irenaeus, “Against Heresies”, 3,1,1, 180 A.D., J208 “…in their own dialect, while Peter and Paul were evangelizing at Rome, and laying the foundations of the Church.” St Irenaeus, "
Against Heresies", chapter III, “…the very ancient, and universally known Church founded and organized at Rome by the two most glorious apostles, Peter and Paul; as also [by pointing out] the faith preached to men, which comes down to our time by means of the successions of the bishops.”
I have provided some of the top historians but you want to dismiss them as if nobody but you knows about Irenaeus.
TOP historians? :whacky:
