 BURRIS & VAN ROMPAY: Thecla in Syriac Christianity
In the latter two manuscripts, the Thecla texts (respectively entitled "History of the illustrious Thecla, the one of Paul" and "History concerning Thecla, who was the betrothed of Thamyris, the king's son, and at the end (was) the disciple of Paul the apostle") are part of large collections of historical, hagiographical, and martyrological texts.

[18] This manuscript may suggest the intersection of varying understandings of Thecla and her place in Syrian Christianity.  The stories of Thecla and Susanna remind us of the "Book of women".  However, the other biblical women are absent, and instead, one finds a number of Christian, women.

 Why I Am Not a Van Tilian
Christianity is at points reasonable and logical, but logic meets the end of its ability when it comes to matters like the incarnation of Christ, and the doctrine of the Trinity." Apparently the doctrines of the incarnation and the Trinity, key Christian doctrines to say the least, are illogical.
John Frame, a disciple of Van Til and professor of apologetics at Westminster Theological Seminary, also says that "Scripture...does refer to God as one person" (20).
As the arrangement of the Westminster Confession of Faith would indicate, apart from the doctrine of Scripture (WCF 1), the most fundamental doctrine of Christianity is that of the Trinity (WCF 2).

 The Celtic Rite
The existence of a different rite in Britain and Ireland has been used to prove that the Christianity of these islands had an origin independent of Rome, though, even if it were true, it is not easy to see how that should prove anything more than the fact itself.
This theory (for which see also AMBROSIAN LITURGY AND RITE) is to the effect that St. Irenaeus, the disciple of St. Polycarp, who was the disciple of St. John the Divine, brought the Rite of Ephesus to Provence, whence it spread through Gaul and to Britain.
This so-called "Ephesine" Rite (a term often used as synonymous with "Hispano-Gallican"), say the supporters of the theory, was the foundation of the Sarum Rite, and from this it derived a belief that the Church of England had an origin independent of Rome.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Philosophy
It has often been remarked that Christianity, with its monotheistic dogma and its serene, purifying morality, came in the fulness of time and appeased the inward unrest with which souls were afflicted at the end of the Roman world.
Later on, neo-Platonism, emphasizing its religious features, placed itself, with Jamblichus, at the service of the pagan pantheon which growing Christianity was ruining on all sides, or again, as with Themistius at Constantinople (fourth century), Proclus and Simplicius at Athens (fifth century), and Ammonius at Alexandria, it took an Encyclopedic turn.
Porphyry of Tyre (232-304), a disciple of Plotinus, popularizes his teaching, emphasizes its religious bearing, and makes Aristotle's "Organon" the introduction to neo-Platonic philosophy.
