Epiphanius of Salamis Panarion Vol 1 Panarion Vol 2-3

Epiphanius was a strong defender of the faith who lived in the fourth century (315-403AD). He is famous for his defence of the the decisions of Nicaea following the decades of turmoil which followed after the Council in 325AD.  He was nominated and installed as Bishop of Salamis in Cyprus as it was clear his reputation for learning grew. Epiphanius was fluent in many languages such as Hebrew, Latin, Greek, Syriac and Egyptian. He could very well have been seen as a prodigy where his strong Jewish heritage may have contributed to his gift. He served as Bishop for 40 years. He spent much of his time travelling far and wide combatting beliefs that were contrary to the Nicene faith. He took part in the Synod of Antioch in 376AD, which gathered to address the heresy of Apollinarianism. He is famous for his prolific works in defense of the faith of Nicaea called the Panarion and Ancoratus.
