"Tertullian was born in Carthage somewhere about 160 A.D. He was a
pagan, and he abandoned himself to the lascivious life of his city
until about his 35th year, when he became a Christian .... To him is
ascribed the sublime confession: Credo quia absurdum est (I believe
because it is absurd). This does not altogether accord with historical
fact, for he merely said:

"And the Son of God died, which is immediately credible because
it is absurd. And buried he rose again, which is certain
because it is impossible."

Thanks to the acuteness of his mind, he saw through the poverty of
philosophical and Gnostic knowledge, and contemptuously rejected it."
[C. G. Jung, in Psychological Types. Tertullian
was one of the founders of the Catholic Church]
