The early Church by Henry Chadwick( Book )

98 editions published between 1967 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 2,450 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

Early Christian thought and the classical tradition; studies in Justin, Clement, and Origen by Henry Chadwick( Book )

60 editions published between 1966 and 2002 in English and Japanese and held by 1,249 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 )

30 editions published between 1954 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,153 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 )

49 editions published between 1981 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 1,144 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."--Jacket
Contra Celsum by Origen( Book )

45 editions published between 1953 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 844 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few works of the early Church are as interesting to the modern reader or as important to the historian as Origen's reply to the attack on Christianity made by the pagan Celsus. Contra Celsum (or Against Celsus) is the culmination of the great apologetic movement of the second and third centuries AD, and is for the Greek Church what St Augustine's City of God is for Western Christendom. It is also one of the chief monuments of the coming together of ancient Greek culture and the new faith of the expanding Christian society. Thus Origen's work is of interest not only to the historian and theologian, but also to the Hellenist. Henry Chadwick's English translation is preceded by a substantial introduction which includes discussion on Celsus' identity and theological outlook, as well as an account of Origen's philosophical background and method
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 701 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

Augustine of Hippo : a life by Henry Chadwick( Book )

19 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The life and works of Augustine of Hippo (354-430) have shaped the development of the Christian Church, sparking controversy and influencing the ideas of theologians through subsequent centuries. Augustine's intellectual development is recounted with clarity and warmth in th is newly rediscovered biography by the acclaimed church historian, the late Henry Chadwick. Augustine's journey from schoolboy and student to Bishop and champion of Western Christendom in a period of intense political upheaval, is narrated in Chadwick's characteristically rigorous yet sympathetic style."--Jacket
Confessions by Augustine( )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written shortly after he became Biship of Hippo, "Confessions" highlights Augustine's childhood in Numidia and his riotous youth and early manhood in Carthage, Rome, and Milan. It also chronicles his continuing struggle with sin and his efforts to find satisfaction in Manichaenism and Neoplatonism. Particularly poignant are his mother's tireless efforts to rescue him from self-destruction and his dramatic conversion to the Christian faith at age 32
The Making of orthodoxy : essays in honour of Henry Chadwick by Rowan Williams( Book )

14 editions published between 1988 and 2002 in English and held by 489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume of essays honours Henry Chadwick, probably the greatest and best-known of English scholars of early Christianity.

It is a collection of fundamental work by internationally recognised experts. It covers issues of orthodoxy from the first right up to the sixth century, and its wide-ranging surveys of centrally important material in early Christianity will find broad appeal among scholars and students of Old and New Testaments, medieval history and patristics
