Gabe Martini (Faithlife):

If you own the entire 37-volume "Protestant Edition," you can purchase the "Catholic Edition" for $0.00. If you own the entire 37-volume "Catholic Edition," you can purchase the "Protestant Edition" for $0.00.

If you'd prefer only one edition to be visible in your library, you can hide the edition of each resource you'd like to remain hidden (for searches, etc.).

P. S. Since there are questions about the difference between these two products (and their purpose), I thought I'd let everyone know that the only difference between the "Catholic" and "Protestant" editions is that the Catholic edition lacks the front matter and commentary found in the original Schaff publication. This was done for the sake of their often anti-Catholic sentiments, and particularly for our Verbum (and now more broadly Ecumenical, Orthodox, Anglican, etc.) audience(s). Otherwise, the actual volumes and their content remains unchanged. The same 37 volumes are contained in both editions.

"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."

Thanks to FL for including Carta and a Hebrew audio bible in Logos 9!

It is material from the editors/translators of the series i.e. after the original church fathers but not after the original publication.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."
