Hi,

 

I am looking to bolster my library with primary sources. I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of book sets, or collections on patristics, and the writings of early church fathers such as chrysostom, ambrose, etc...

 

Thanks for your time,

Luke S.

If you have a base package you may have some of what's in this package but there might be a component or two of it that fits your interests.

Also, this product guide has a section on Early Church history

In terms of primary sources, these are the best:

There's also plenty of Thomas Aquinas stuff if that's not too late for you.

You can also check out:

  • Catena Aurea
  • Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture
  • Apostolic Fathers
  • Migne's Patrologia (if your Greek and Latin are better than mine...)
  • St Augustine 
  • St Bede
  • St Bernhard of Clairvaux
  • I think there's also some Syriac resources if you're up to that
(Some of these are already included in the Early Church Bundle.)

Thanks for the input guys!

 

I am just trying to find which sets are going to suite my library best at this point in time!

I know this isn't exactly what you were asking but it is worth considering an upgrade to Scholar's Silver IF you already have the base Scholar's Library. It contains the Early Church Fathers collection and other collections that you might like for roughly $80 more than the price of ECF alone!

Thanks for the heads up Dave!

I am going to go with your idea, not only is it super cost effective with an Academic discount, I get several other books I was going to purchase sooner or later anyways!

 

Thanks,
