Originally printed in 1885, the ten-volume set,
Ante-Nicene Fathers, brings together the work of early Christian
thinkers. In particular, it brings together the writings of the early
Church fathers prior to the fourth century Nicene Creed. These volumes
are noteworthy for their inclusion of entire texts, and not simply
fragments or excerpts from these great writings. The translations are
fairly literal, providing both readers and scholars with a good
approximation of the originals. This particular volume contains works by
St. Clement, Mathetes, St. Polycarp, St. Ignatius, Barnabas, St. Papias,
St. Justin Martyr, and St. Irenaeus. These writings were heavily
influential on the early Church, and for good reason, as they are
inspirational and encouraging. These volumes also come with many useful
notes, providing the reader with new levels of understanding. Overall,
Ante-Nicene Fathers, or any part of it, is a welcome addition to
