Ante-Nicene Fathers, Vol III:
Tertullian: Part II: Diversity in the Opinions of Secundus, as Compared with the General Doctrine of Valentinus.

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter XXXVIII.—Diversity in the Opinions of Secundus, as Compared with the General Doctrine of Valentinus.

Secundus is a trifle more human, as he is briefer: he divides the Ogdoad into a pair of Tetrads, a right hand one and a left hand one, one light and the other darkness. Only he is unwilling to derive the power which apostatized and fell away 6931 from any one of the Æons, but from the fruits which issued from their substance.

Next: Their Diversity of Sentiment Affects the Very Central Doctrine of Christianity, Even the Person and Character of the Lord Jesus. This Diversity Vitiates Every Gnostic School.
