Overview

Aristides the Athenian (also Saint Aristides or Marcianus Aristides) was a 2nd century Greek Christian author who is primarily known as the author of the Apology of Aristides. His feast day is August 31 in Roman Catholicism. Very little is known of Aristides, except for the introductory information given by Eusebius of Caesarea and Saint Jerome. According to their account, Aristides practiced philosophy in Athens, where he lived, prior to and after his conversion to Christianity.

The Apology of Aristides is the oldest extant Christian apology since only a fragment of the older apology of Quadratus exists.
