Book of Saints – Aristides


ARISTIDES (Saint) (August 31) (2nd century) Both Eusebius and Saint Jerome speak of Saint Aristides as an early Christian writer and an eloquent philosopher, who, like his contemporary Quadratus, presented to the Emperor Hadrian an Apologv for the Christian Faith (A.D. 133). He is cited by Usuard (in his Martyrology for October 3) for his account of the Passion of Saint Dionysius the Areopagite. This work, which was treasured by the Athenians as a noble monument of antiquity, is now apparently lost.
