Fathers of the Church

An extensive set of writings from the Fathers of the Church: early saintly authors whom the Church recognizes as her special witnesses of the faith.

Our collection is the 19th century Eerdman's edition of early Christian writers, which is in the public domain. It includes not only the Fathers per se, but also other early writings of historical interest. For clarity, we provide a brief description as well as the provenance for each work.
