"My god is greater."


« on: August 04, 2011, 03:46:18 PM »

A friend gave me this book years ago and I've only just cracked it open and realized how great it is. It's a nice compact volume which contains translations of St. Athanasius' On the Incarnation and also important theological writings of St. Gregory Nazianzen and St. Gregory of Nyssa. Its appendix also includes numerous important documents, including St. Cyril's 12 anathemas, the Tome of Leo, and the anathemas of the Fifth Ecumenical Council. It seems to me like an ideal introduction to the Fathers. So far I've On the Incarnation and I'll start on St. Gregory anon.

Greetings in that Divine and Most Precious Name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

Yes, those are indeed the foundation Christological fathers.  I also recommend Saint Severus in order to help elucidate further on Saint Cyril who really builds upon Saint Athanasius.  I have all those things you mentioned on my hard drive and I read them more often then other patristic writings.

But your thread title is a bit confusing, it seems you really mean "early" or "golden age" Fathers because when I read later I was thinking something more like 10th centuries up until even modern era Smiley

stay blessed,

I believe by "later fathers" they basically mean Nicene and after. I agree that this is rather early too.
