Originally published in German as Lehrbuch der Patrologie, The Fathers of the Church, which is Siegfried Schatzmann's translation of the original German, offers English-speaking readers easy access to Hubertus R. Drobner's traditional introduction to early Christian thought.
Spanning the first seven hundred years of Christianity, this volume presents the most important authors and works of early Christian literature, introducing writers such as Philo, Origen, Eusebius, Jerome, and Augustine, among many others. All authors are presented in their respective political, social, ecclesiastical, and cultural contexts, and their writings are organized in terms of bibliographies, editions, English translations, ancillary sources, and relevant literature.
Drobner brings patristics scholarship up to date in this traditional introduction. His work is sufficiently broad to be a useful summary of early Christian history and the expansive strokes of doctrinal debate and development and provides a clear presentation of early Christian thought.
The Fathers of the Church is valuable in its presentation of contemporary studies and views. Patristics students will benefit from this dependable overview of early Christian texts, and scholars and libraries will appreciate the extensive bibliography, indexes, and other resources.
