Saint Irénée is the second bishop of Lyon, in the 2nd century. Regarded as one of the Church Fathers, he is known to have been the first Westerner to perform a systematic theologian's work. He denounced the dualistic ideology and the Gnostic sects.

His character :

A man with a fiery temperament, Irénée often acts with haste. Hyperactive, his life is very rhythmic, which leaves him little time to relax. His head full of ideas, he goes on projects.

Independent, Irenaeus does not wait for help from anyone to succeed. Confident, stubborn and combative, it is better not to get in the way. His audacity and stubbornness make him a difficult person to handle. He is a leader of nature ... from the sandbox!
