Overview

This complete set of the writings of the Early Church Fathers translated into English is one of the most important collections of historical, philosophical and theological writings available 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. This is the tool that opens up the voluminous Early Church Fathers for everyone. Now for the first time, you can instantly search the entire body of writing from the starting point of a Bible reference, a word, or a phrase.

For decades, the historic American Edition of the writings of the Early Church Fathers translated into English has made a major contribution to students of Christian history, philosophy, and theology. The Logos edition of the ECF provides the interactive links between text, footnotes, Bible references and hundreds of Bibles and Bible reference books available in digital format.

The Early Church Fathers comes in two versions, Protestant and Catholic. Simply put, the difference is that the Protestant edition contains additional front matter written at a later date. There is no difference in the actual ECF text.

Key Features
