The Doctors of the Church are the most reliable and authoritative teachers of the Faith for all Christians (not just Catholics). The Catholic Church, to date, has named 36 men and women as Doctors of the Church. “Doctor” essentially means teacher and each of the Doctors is noteworthy for their outstanding, clear teaching of the Faith, as well as their holiness. These seven volumes represent significant selections from the four Women Doctors of the Church: St. Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179), St. Catherine of Siena (1347-1379), St. Teresa of Avila (1515-1582), and St. Therese of Lisieux (1873-1897). No library should be without this essential set of resources!
In the Verbum edition, these works become the backbone of any study of the Christian faith. Links to the patristic writings of the Early Church Fathers will bring you right to the source—to the very quote—allowing you to see instant context. Footnotes appear on mouseover, as well as references to Scripture and extra-biblical material in your library, and you can perform near-instant searches across these volumes, searching for references to keywords or Scripture passages.
