Saints Alive: St. Irenaeus of Lyon - DVD
The Ven. Michael J. McGivney, founder of the Knights of Columbus, introduces us to St. Irenaeus, 1st-century Bishop of Lyon, best known for his classic "Against the Heresies." The Saint's principles for recognizing and defeating Gnosticism's war against the Faith are the topic of a lively interview with EWTN Saints Alive host, Richard Payne. Issues discussed: Who is the "Gnostic" Jesus? What is it in Gnosticism that people find attractive today? Were Marx and Hegel Gnostics? Did Gnosticism influence Hitler? How was the so-called Enlightenment affected by the Gnostic heresy?
