The Early Christian Fathers: A Selection from the Writings of the Fathers from St. Clement of Rome to St. Athanasuis


The authors represented in the volume, first published in 1956, are the principal writers of the Church in the Roman Empire from the period immediately after the New Testament down to the age of Constantine and the Council of Nicaea (AD 325). Mr Bettenson has selected a range of passages to display as fully as possible the thought of the early Fathers, especially on the great doctrinal themes, with brief annotation where necessary.
