Quintus Septimius Florens Tertullianus, anglicised as Tertullian, was a church leader and prolific author of early Christianity. He also was a notable early Christian apologist. He was the son of a Roman centurion. He was raised in Carthage as a pagan.

Tertullian denounced Christian doctrines he considered heretical, but later in life adopted views that themselves came to be regarded as heretical. He wrote three books in Greek and was the first great writer of Latin Christianity, thus sometimes known as the "Father of the Latin Church". He was a notable lawyer in Rome during the reign of Marcus Aurelius and introduced the term Trinity as the Latin trinitas, to the Christian vocabulary and also probably the formula "three Persons, one Substance" as the Latin "tres Personae, una Substantia" , and also the terms vetus testamentum and novum testamentum .
