Against Heresies, or On the Detection and Overthrow of the So-Called Gnosis (Ancient Greek: Ἔλεγχος καὶ ἀνατροπὴ τῆς ψευδωνύμου γνώσεως), sometimes referred to by its Latin title Adversus Haereses, is a work of Christian theology written in Greek about the year by Irenaeus, the bishop of Lugdunum (now Lyon in France).

Written in the 2nd century, this book is Irenaeus' principle work in existence. It is a strong refutation of Gnostic thought, emphasizing a bodily resurrection and glorification for all the redeemed. Irenaeus is perhaps the first systematic theologian in the history of the church, and his work is still important today.

And let the nations serve you, and kings bow down to you; and be lord over your brother, and your father's sons shall bow down to you: cursed shall be he who shall.
