Description

The Ante-Nicene Fathers ranges from the Apostolic Fathers to various third and fourth century sources including the liturgies and ancient Syriac documents. It was intended to comprise translations into English of all the extant works of the Fathers (with the exception of the more bulky works of Origen) down to the date of the first General Council held at Nicaea in 325 A.D. This American edition by Arthur Cleveland Coxe is a revision of the original series edited by Alexander Roberts and Sir James Donaldson and published in Edinburgh. The revision involves a major rearrangement to conform to the historical sequence, the addition of brief introductions and notes indicating variances in readings, specifying references to scripture or literature, clarifying obscure passages, and noting corruptions or distortions of patristic testimony (as forged in the Decretals). The basic aim of the translations has been to strive for literary exactness, placing the English reader as nearly as possible on an equal footing with those who are able to read the original.Volume Titles: Volume 1: Apostolic Fathers, Justin Martyr, InrenaeusVolume 2: Hermas, Tatian, Athenagoras, Theophilus, Clement of AlexandriaVolume 3: TertullianVolume 4: Tertullian (IV), Minucius Felix, Commodian, OrigenVolume 5: Hippolytus, Cyprian, Caius, Novatian, AppendixVolume 6: Gregory Thaumaturgus, Dionysius the Great, Julius Africanus, Anatolius and Minor Writers, Methodius, ArnobiusVolume 7: Lactantius, Venantius, Asterius, Victorinus, Dionysius, Apostolic Teaching and Constitutions, Homily, and LiturgiesVolume 8: Twelve Patriarchs, Excerpts and Epistles, The Clementina, Aprocryphal Gospels andActs, Syriac DocumentsVolume 9: Gospel of Peter, Diatessaron, Testament of Abraham, Epistles of Clement, Origen and Miscellaneous WorksVolume 10: Bibliography, General Index, Annotated Index of Authors and Worksshow more
