Tertullian (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Traducianism is the doctrine, proposed by the Christian Father Tertullian (circa 160-225), that souls are inherited from parents, just as bodies are inherited from parents.

This runs counter to the more popular Christian belief in Creationism, where God apparently creates an entirely new soul at the moment of each person’s conception.
