I think it is 34 volumes in length
Christian Book Distributors is sellining all 34 for $199.00
go to www.Christianbook.com
the editors of the series are protestants, but with 34 volumes of writings of the early Church Fathers you are bound to find some good Othodox stuff
sounds like a pretty good deal to me, especially for priests and seminarians

As a seminarian, I have to say that I have found these texts invaluable.  I own the set.  And since it is merely translations of the fathers, not commentary, it is indeed Orthodox.  Well, to be honest, there is a brief introductory section on each of the fathers that you can skip over - but the texts themselves are fine.  A caveat however - these translations are old.  The English is a bit archaic and unwieldy.  However they are excellent.

They can also be read via the web at:


This link is useful iif you happen to be on-line, but otherwise not...

for Vol. XIV of series II of Nicene & Post-Nicene Fathers, and because it is very handy. The website is also offering to sell a set of the books on 4 CD's for $35.

Not that I am endorsing that site or advertising it; the information is just FYI.
