The Oxford dictionary of the Christian Church by F. L Cross( Book )

156 editions published between 1948 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 6,367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church is a one-volume reference work on all aspects of the Christian Church. It contains over 6,000 cross-referenced A-Z entries, and offers coverage of all aspects of this vast and often complex subject, including theology, churches and denominations, patristic scholarship, the Bible, the church calendar and its organization, popes, archbishops, saints, and mystics. In this revision, innumerable small changes have been made to take into account shifts in scholarly opinion, recent developments, such as the Church of England's new prayer book (Common Worship), RC canonizations, ecumenical advances and mergers, and, where possible, statistics. A number of existing articles have been rewritten to reflect new evidence or understanding, for example, the Holy Sepulchre entry, and there are a few new articles. Perhaps most significantly, a great number of the bibliographies have been updated

The early Christian fathers by F. L Cross( Book )

17 editions published between 1960 and 1985 in 3 languages and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 )

38 editions published between 1951 and 1995 in 3 languages and held by 498 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 )

12 editions published between 1936 and 1975 in English and held by 481 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
