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. 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,
welcome addition to one's reading list.
