The Early Church Historians
Written between the fourth and sixth centuries A.D., these works provide a continuous narrative of ecclesiastical affairs from the time of Christ until 593. The histories are rich with tales of controversy, persecution, intrigue, and the famed deeds and misdeeds of early church figures. In addition to their own merit as pieces of classical scholarship, these writings contain excerpts from many ancient works now lost.
The book includes explanatory footnotes, maps, and a glossary of important names and terms to provide important background information and enhance comprehension. Expertly translated with sensitivity towards both the authors' tone and intent, The Early Church Historians is ideal for courses in early Christian history.
