The Early Church Fathers CD

Starkman's picture

Hello all,

Say, I have a question about the Early Church Fathers CD. Here's the description of the DVD:

"The Early Church Fathers series is comprised of thirty-seven volumes of the most important writings of the first 500 years of the church, as well as a copy of the New Revised Standard Version (NRSV) of the Bible. To this is added the Apostolic Fathers in Greek, the Summa Theologica and other works of St. Thomas Aquinas, Deane's Pseudepigrapha, and other works by Athanasius, Augustine, Boethius, Irenaeus, Origen, and Salvian, in one convenient download. The powerful software in this download also makes it possible to search the entire library for words, phrases, and scripture references and to install additional books from the CCEL via the Internet."

My first question is how is it the CD states its the Early Church Fathers but then adds that it also includes "To this is added . . . Irenaeus, Origen . . ." Shouldn't all of the writings of those tow have already been included as church fathers? (Is this an exhaustive compilation of church fathers writings?)

The next question is am I to understand that the included writings of the apostolic faters are in Greek and not English?

Thanks very much,
