The Fathers of the Church

February 20, 2015

First published a decade ago, this work has become the standard popular introduction to the great teachers of early Christianity. Now, this new edition presents more material from more of the Fathers, including authors from lesser-known traditions of Egypt, East Syria, North Africa, and the lands that make up modern Iran and Iraq. Also new here is a section on selected “Mothers of the Church,” holy women from Christian antiquity. This expanded edition features full references and citations, a topical index, detailed bibliography, and ancient texts available in English for the first time in more than a century.
