The case for Peregrinus as a fraud is laid out by the skeptical satirist Lucian of Samosata in a detailed account of Peregrinus’s life. Lucian wrote fiction, but Peregrinus was not one of his invented characters, since he’s mentioned by other contemporary writers, including Tatian, Athenagoras, Tertullian, Maximus Tyrias, and Eusebius. Lucian of Samosata: THE PASSING OF PEREGRINUS. An account of the life and death of a Cynic philosopher who for a time in his early life went over to Christianity, practicing it to the point of imprisonment under a very tolerant administration, and after returning to Cynicism became in his old age so enamoured of Indic ideas and precedents that he cremated himself at Olympia, just after the .

Peregrinus Proteus (Greek: Περεγρῖνος Πρωτεύς; c. 95 – AD) was a Greek Cynic philosopher, from Parium in Mysia. Leaving home at a young age, he first lived with the Christians in Palestine, before eventually being expelled from that community and adopting the life of a Cynic philosopher and eventually settling in Greece. The Passing of Peregrinus or The Death of Peregrinus is a satire by the Syrian Greek writer Lucian in which the lead character, the Cynic philosopher Peregrinus Proteus, takes advantage of the generosity of Christians and lives a disingenuous life before burning himself at the Olympic Games of AD.
