I have the Ante-Nicene fathers 1 - 9. 

Number 7 shows up as type:Bible Commentary, and the rest show up as type:monograph. 

Can anyone explain this? Same story with the Nicene and Post-Nicene fathers...some are classified as commentaries and some as monographs.

Within any series there may be books of different types. In this case, there are some volumes that are indexed by Bible reference (commentaries) and many that are not (letters for example). Most of the others will either be Bibles or monographs (in effect the default for every book without special properties).

  I have not been following the forums regularly lately.  I know that for a while MJ was not posting often.  I hope this post means she is back.  Just seeing this post by MJ, who is always knowledgeable and helpful, lifts my spirits.
