The early Church by Henry Chadwick( Book )

104 editions published between 1967 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 2,555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chadwickʹs Early Church covers, as the book cover suggests, "the story of emergent Christianity from the apostolic age to the dividing of the ways between the Greek East and the Latin West." The story unfolds with the Jewish and Roman background within which the beginning church was nourished. It then goes on to show how important it is for the church to establish order and unity amidst threats of persecution and heresy. The emergence of apologists helps not only the expansion of the church but also the construction of Christian doctrine. At the same time, controversies abound as the church encountered many different cultural and sociological challenges while trying out in reaction a variety of ideas. With chapter seven, the relation between church and state changes, resulting in a stronger influence of the state upon the church while accelerating the split between the Latin West and the Greek East. The Arian controversy shows a period of instability between state and church, and also deepens the split of East and West. But within the turmoil, ascetic practice, papacy, liturgy, and art are established, helping to transmit a common European culture while the Roman Empire begins to degenerate

The confessions ; The city of God ; On Christian doctrine by Augustine( Book )

29 editions published between 1991 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this new translation the brilliant and impassioned descriptions of Augustine's colorful early life are conveyed to the English reader with accuracy and art. Augustine tells of his wrestlings to master his sexual drive, his rare ascent from a humble Algerian farm to the edge of the corridors of high power at the imperial court of Milan, and his renunciation of secular ambition and marriage as he recovered the faith that his mother had taught him. It was in a Milan garden that Augustine finally achieved the act of will to Christian conversion, which he compared to a lazy man in bed finally deciding it is time to get up and face the day. - Back cover
Early Christian thought and the classical tradition; studies in Justin, Clement, and Origen by Henry Chadwick( Book )

56 editions published between 1966 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 1,255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book takes three Christian thinkers, Justin, Clement of Alexandria, and Origen, and shows what the debate looked like from the Christian side. It draws on the pagan critics of the Church to illustrate the case the Christians had to answer. The examination of the Christian synthesis illustrates the extent to which penetrating criticism of the classical tradition was combined with a profound acceptance of its humanism

Alexandrian Christianity : selected translations of Clement and Origen with introductions and notes by J. E. L Oulton( Book )

31 editions published between 1954 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Deals with Clement of Alexandria and Origen, influential 'Church Fathers' of the second century. These two important personages are linked together not only because they both lived in Alexandria in the same period but also because they were both influential in making the Greek influence felt in religion. They did much to provide the philosophical basis for Christian asceticism which was later to find expression in the monastic orders....No theologian or theological library will want to be without this and the companion volumes of the series." [Kirkus Reviews]
Boethius, the consolations of music, logic, theology, and philosophy by Henry Chadwick( Book )

43 editions published between 1981 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 1,109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The author begins by tracing the career of this Roman senator rising to high office under the Gothic king Theodoric the Great, and suggests that his death may be seen as a cruel by-product of Byzantine ambitions to restore Roman imperial rule after its elimination in the West in 476. Subsequent chapters examine in detail his education programme in the liberal arts, designed to avert a threatened collapse of culture, and his ambition of translating into Latin everything he could find on Plato and Aristotle. The last two chapters bring fresh evidence to illustrate the profound debt of the theological tractates to Neoplatonic commentaries on the 'Permednides' of Plato, and finally inquire what evidence for Boethius' personal faith is given by the vindication of providence in the 'Consolation of Philosophy', from which explicitly Christian elements are absent." -- Book jacket
Contra Celsum by Origen( Book )

The church in ancient society : from Galilee to Gregory the Great by Henry Chadwick( Book )

27 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 687 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Church in Ancient Society provides a full and enjoyable narrative history of the first six centuries of the Christian Church. Ancient Greek and Roman society had many gods and an addiction to astrology and divination. This introduction to the period traces the process by which Christianity changed this and so provided a foundation for the modern world: the teaching of Jesus created a lasting community, which grew to command the allegiance of the Roman emperor. Christianity is discussed in relation to how it appeared to both Jews and pagans, and how its Christian doctrine and practice were shaped in relation to Graeco-Roman culture and the Jewish matrix. Among the major figures discussed are Tertullian, Clement of Alexandria, Origen, Constantine, Julian the Apostle, Basil, Ambrose, and Augustine."--Jacket
