Ignatius was the bishop of Antioch in Syria. Three recensions of his epistles, reckoned among the apostolic fathers, are extant. The long recension is generally rejected as including clearly spurious epistles (those to the Tarsians, to the Antiochians, to Hero, a deacon in Antioch, to the Philippians, to Mary of Cassobola, to the virgin Mary, and to John, and those from Mary of Cassobola and from the virgin Mary). The short recension, in Syriac, is an abridgement of the middle recension, and includes the epistles to Polycarp, the Ephesians, and the Romans. It is the middle recension that is most commonly accepted as genuinely Ignatian. The middle recension consists of seven epistles.
Attestation for the epistles: Polycarp to the Philippians 9; 13.1-2; Irenaeus, Against Heresies 5.28.4 (anonymously quoting chapter 4 of Ignatius to the Romans); Origen, prologue of Song of Songs and Homilies on Luke 4; Eusebius, History of the Church 3.22, 36, 38.
