Apollonius (bishop of Ephesus)

Apollonius (Ancient Greek: Απολλώνιος) was a Christian writer whose parents and country are unknown, but who is believed to have been bishop of Ephesus, and to have lived about the year 192 AD. He wrote a work exposing the conduct and practices of the Christian sect called Cataphryges, some fragments of which are preserved in the works of the church historian Eusebius. Christian writer Tertullian defended the sect of the Montanists against this Apollonius, and the seventh book of his work On Ecstasies (περὶ ἐκστάσεως) was especially directed against Apollonius.
