Nicene and Post Nicene Fathers, First Series, Volume III: St. Augustin: On the Holy Trinity, Doctrinal Treatises, Moral Treatises. The Early Church Fathers is one of the most important collections of historical, philosophical and theological writings available in English to the student of the Christian Church. These documents provide the most comprehensive witness to the development of Christianity and Christian thought during the period immediately following the Apostolic Era. The Catholic edition of Early Church Fathers does not include the introductions, prolegomenae, and various interpretive comments made by the protestant editors of the Edinburgh edition. However, it retains all of the footnotes found in the printed editions.

“Wherefore, in the Old Testament there is a veiling of the New, and in the New Testament there is a revealing of the Old.” (Page 287)

“In order, therefore, that the human mind might be purged from falsities of this kind, Holy Scripture, which suits itself to babes, has not avoided words drawn from any class of things really existing, through which, as by nourishment, our understanding might rise gradually to things divine and transcendent. For, in speaking of God, it has both used words taken from things corporeal, as when it says, ‘Hide me under the shadow of Thy wings;’2 and it has borrowed many things from the spiritual creature, whereby to signify that which indeed is not so, but must needs so be said: as, for instance, ‘I the Lord thy God am a jealous God;’3 and, ‘It repenteth me that I have made man.’” (Page 18)

“For if of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, so as to assign each clause severally to each person: of Him, that is to say, of the Father; through Him, that is to say, through the Son; in Him, that is to say, in the Holy Spirit,—it is manifest that the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit is one God, inasmuch as the words continue in the singular number, ‘To whom10 be glory for ever.’” (Page 22)

“Take this love, therefore, as the end that is set before you, to which you are to refer all that you say, and, whatever you narrate, narrate it in such a manner that he to whom you are discoursing on hearing may believe, on believing may hope, on hoping may love.” (Pages 287–288)

“But this is the very thing which we have already laid down to be said according to the form of a servant: viz., that we are so to understand ‘It is not mine to give,’ as if it were said, This is not in the power of man to give; that so He may be understood to give it through that wherein He is God equal to the Father. ‘It is not mine,’ He says, ‘to give;’ that is, I do not give these things by human power, but ‘to those for whom it is prepared by my Father;’ but then take care you understand also, that if ‘all things which the Father hath are mine,’18 then this certainly is mine also, and I with the Father have prepared these things.” (Page 31)
