Deals individually with each Father and collectively with the thought of the schools into which they can be grouped (Asia Minor, Alexandrian, Roman, Greek and African). Describes also the early conflict with Gnosticism, the apocryphal scriptures and pseudo-apostolic writings, and the low state of culture of the pre-Nicene Church which is the general background of early Patristic studies
St. Cyril of Jerusalem's lectures on the Christian sacraments: the Procatechesis and the five Mystagogical catecheses by Cyril( Book )

40 editions published between 1951 and 1995 in 3 languages and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These six Lectures on the Christian Sacraments were delivered in Jerusalem in the middle of the fourth century. The first, the "procatechesis", is a hearty welcome to the candidates for baptism and introduces them to the period of doctrinal instruction which lies ahead. The remaining five, the "mystagogical catecheses", are an exposition of the rites of Christian initiation--Baptism, Chrismation and the Eucharist--for the newly baptized. A rich source of information on the history and worship of the fourth century, the lectures remain a source of instruction and inspiration
God in patristic thought by G. L Prestige( Book )

14 editions published between 1936 and 1975 in English and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book assembles the evidence for what the Greek Fathers, the men whose constructive thought underlies the creeds, really thought and taught about the nature of God. It shows that they were original thinkers, with a profound reverence for the text of the Scriptures, and minds keenly trained to discuss what ultimate truths were expressed in the Scriptural text and what reality should be ascribed to Christian religious experience. The Fathers had to reconcile monotheism with faith in a Trinity of divine Persons. In the process, they pursued many lines of inquiry, often only to discard them after trial, but after following various clues and making various intellectual adventures they reached a solution of the problem which was both true to their data and philosophically reasonable. Though the bulk of the book is concerned with the third and fourth centuries, during which the creeds were in the process of formulation, the story is carried down to the eighth century where the progress of original thought came to a standstill. It is shown that a great change came over the philosophical tradition during the sixth century, and owing to the consequent growth of formalism a genuine outbreak of tritheism occurred. The book ends with the account of how this outbreak was met and overcome, largely through the efforts of a thinker whose very name is unknon, and whose book has only survived under the name of another man

17 editions published between 1939 and 1963 in 5 languages and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Athanasius was born in the later half of AD 299 and died in AD 373. During this time, in 325, one of the most important Church meetings in history took place (second probably only to the Jerusalem Council). Convened by Constantine, the Council of Nicaea's primary task was seeking unity in all Christendom on the nature of the person of Jesus and his relation to the Father. While we mostly take it for granted today, most of what is now considered orthodox Christian doctrine were once items up for debate. At the council of Nicaea there were two views on the person of Christ being debated. The first was that of Arius, who believed that the Son was a created creature, albeit the first created, and not God. This makes sense if Jesus is "the Son" he must then come after the father. Colossians calls him the "firstborn of all creation." Arius argued that the Son was created from nothing and then he was the creator of all other things. This made him a finite being as well as a being capable of wrong. The second view, and the one the council decided on, was that of St. Alexander, Bishop of Alexandria. Alexander argued that the Father's attributes are eternal, even his fatherhood and so he has always had the Son with him. Technically, he said the son was "begotten" and not created. Begotten of the same substance as the Father. This meant he was God and equal with the Father. Alexander had assistants at the council, the most notable of which was a 26 year old deacon by the name of Athanasius. Athanasius would spend the rest of his life fighting the Arian heresy. He did this most notably through his work On the Incarntion. On the Incarnation is the second half of a two part treatise and in it Athanasius covers creation, the fall, and the incarnation and resurrection as well as some refutations to common objections from Jews and Greeks regarding the Son, or as he calls him, the "God Word."--Taken from Amazon.com®
