Apology of Quadratus

QUADRATUS, APOLOGY OF kwäd rä’ təs (Κοδρα̂τος). One of the earliest Christian apologies. It was presented to the emperor Hadrian at a time when Christians were being persecuted. This may have been in Asia Minor in a.d. 123-124 or 129, or in Athens in 125 or 128-129. The only part of the text preserved is a brief quotation of about fifty words in Eusebius (Euseb. Hist., IV. iii. 2), which states that some persons whom Christ had healed or raised from the dead survived to Quadratus’ own time.
