I'm pretty sure this list of doctors of the Church is incorrect: https://verbum.com/products/168021/the-doctors-of-the-church

The list of 36 doctors doesn't contain Sts. Jerome, Ambrose, Augustine or Gregory, so something is awry. And I'm not sure about all of those dates either.

The list (which has only 28 doctors) seems to reflect information that is found e.g. here https://www.crossroadsinitiative.com/media/articles/doctors-of-the-catholic-church/ - it just misses the first blocks with four Western and four Eastern church fathers each who are Doctors of the Church:

  • St. Ambrose, 340-397
  • St. Jerome,345-420
  • St. Augustine, 354-430
  • St. Gregory the Great(Pope), 540-604
  • St. Athanasius,295-373
  • St. Basil the Great, 330-379
  • St. Gregory of Nazianzus, 330-390
  • St. John Chrysostom, 345-407

Good find on the website. Hopefully someone will update the product description.

I hope so, too, and have posted in the Logos.com subforum in a thread intended to alert to such errors, and in the Catholic product forum - this should get the attention of someone taking care of the description. 

On the other hand I'm glad that Logos is current on all the 36 (since some where titled in recent years) and even is upfront on not having books from Gregory of Narek (seems his written memory are 95 prayers, found at http://www.stgregoryofnarek.am/ )
