The Oxford dictionary of Popes by J. N. D Kelly( Book )

125 editions published between 1986 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 3,188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This biographical dictionary is an unrivalled source of information about the astonishing succession of churchmen who have loomed large on the world scene for almost 2,000 years. The Dictionary contains concise accounts not only of all the officially recognized popes from St. Peter to John Paul II, but also of all their irregularly elected rivals, the so-called antipopes; it also has an appendix recording the once generally credited but long discarded, tradition that at some date in the ninth, tenth, or eleventh century there was a female pope called Joan. Each pope and antipope is assigned an entry which covers, except where (as in the early centuries) no information is available, his family and social background and pre-papal career as well as his activities in office, and each entry has its separate select bibliography, usually including references to the primary source for the pope's life and his official acts. The popes have been deliberately arranged in chronological rather than alphabetical order so that each can be studied in his own historical context. The arrangement also means that the book is in effect a continuous history of the papacy. Based on careful research, but eminently readable, it provides revealing vignettes of the extraordinary variety of men who have claimed to be successors of St. Peter, and their varying involvement on great power politics, personal or family aggrandizement, theological controversy, or spiritual leadership. It also presents a graphic and moving picture of the fluctuating fortunes of the Christian church centered in Rome, sometimes submerged by secular forces, but at other times, under popes of determination and vision, staging a spectacular revival and confronting the world (as today) with a daunting challenge.--Publisher description
Early Christian doctrines by J. N. D Kelly( Book )

138 editions published between 1950 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 2,706 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A history of doctrines of the early Church, written and arranged with exceptional clarity by a leading patristic scholar, the principal of St. Edmund Hall, Oxford. Canon Kelly describes the development of the principal Christian doctrines from the close of the first century to the middle of the fifth, and from the end of the apostolic age to the council of Chalcedon. His book thus covers the great doctrinally creative period in the Church's history, the centuries in which there was a constant upsurge of fresh ideas before the settled formalism of both the East and West. He gives the student and invaluable outline of Church history and patrology against which to place the evolving theological doctrines which he summarises and expounds"--Jacket

Jerome : his life, writings, and controversies by J. N. D Kelly( Book )

33 editions published between 1975 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 1,325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first full-scale biography of Jerome to appear in English. It describes his education at Rome, his conversion to committed Christianity at Trier, his extraordinary sojourn in the Syrian desert, his debut as an author at Antioch and Constantinople. It depicts him at Rome serving as secretary to Pope Damasus and starting what was to be a life-long career as spiritual counsellor to rich, aristocratic ladies. After his expulsion from Rome in doubtful circumstances, we see him settled for the second half of his life at Bethlehem, establishing religious houses with his patroness Paula, writing with indefatigable energy, and engaging in a series of violent controversies. The analysis of these illustrates his prickly temperament, which brought him into temporary conflict with St. Augustine and ruptured relations with his boyhood friend Rufinus, and also his passionate concern for orthodoxy and hostility to any form of Christianity which fell below the morbidly ascetic ideals he championed. As well as throwing light on Jerome's hyper-sensitive, hag-ridden perrsonality, the narrative gives a vivid impression of the tensions in Christianity at a time when it was becoming the accepted religion of society -- at a time, too, when the Western Empire was beginning to crumble under the impact of barbarian assaults

Golden mouth : the story of John Chrysostom--ascetic, preacher, bishop by J. N. D Kelly( Book )

29 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and held by 888 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Chrysostom, or "Golden Mouth," was a famous ascetic and preacher of the fourth/fifth century, a controversial bishop of Constantinople, and a brilliant orator - hence the epithet. This is the first comprehensive study of him in the English language in over a century. In the early chapters John Kelly highlights Chrysostom's youthful experiments with asceticism at Antioch in Syria, his six years as a monk and then a recluse in the nearby mountains, and his influential role as Antioch's leading preacher. The central section of the book shows him as a fearlessly outspoken populist bishop of the capital. Kelly focuses on his authoritarian style, his interventions in political crises, and his clashes with the Empress Eudoxia, as well as his efforts to promote the primacy of the see of Constantinople in the east. The final chapters reconstruct the plots that led to Chrysostom's downfall, the drama of his trial, and his exile and death. Golden Mouth also provides fresh analyses of Chrysostom's principal treatises and public addresses, and discussions of his views on monasticism, sexuality and marriage, education, and suffering
