Early Christians and animals by Robert M Grant( )

21 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in English and held by 2,087 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Early Christians and Animals presents a colorful and comprehensive overview and analysis of the significance of animals in early Christian thought, tradition, text, and art. The author examines the diverse and often conflicting sources from the pagan antecedents Aristotle and Pliny to Biblical animal references and the Church fathers. He also provides fresh translations of key texts concerning animals - the Physiologus, Basil's Homilies, and the relevant chapters of Isidore of Seville's Etymologies - to make accessible Christian thought on animals."--Jacket
Irenaeus of Lyons by Robert M Grant( )

27 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in English and held by 1,960 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the second century the Christian world was shaken by the Gnostics. Irenaeus came from Asia Minor via Rome to become bishop of Lyons, clarify Christian doctrines and fight the Gnostics with a major, five-volume work. He was a living part of his contemporary culture and his approach filled early Christian thought with new life. The writings of Irenaeus exist as a whole only in Latin and Armenian. This study offers new translations of significant parts of his work, critically based on a complete reconstruction of the original Greek in the French series Sources Chretiennes. This collection of sources will also be an invaluable resource for students of the Early Church

A short history of the interpretation of the Bible by Robert M Grant( Book )

44 editions published between 1948 and 2001 in English and Korean and held by 1,380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Today's interest in the question of the meaning of Scripture has roots in controversies as old as the Christian Church itself. This book examines the principal methods which Christians have used to interpret the Bible, with attention to their effect on the life and thought of the Church. Its concern is with the times at which significantly new developments took place--beginning with the interpretation of the Old Testament by Jesus and Paul. Special attention is given to the early and formative period of Christian history, followed by consideration of the schools of Alexandria and Antioch, the medieval period, the Reformation, the Enlightenment, the nineteenth century and a final chapter on recent developments

"Beginning with the death of Augustus, the first Roman emperor, in 14 A.D. and ending with the death of the first Christian emperor, Constantine, in 337 A.D., this study of early Christianity brings to life the religious, political, and cultural developments through which the faith of a Jewish sect became the religion of the Roman empire.

Mitchell, which assesses its importance and puts the reader in touch with the advances of current research."--Jacket
