1. A number of the editions of the Early Church Fathers are abridged to some degree. Most have indicated where text has been omitted. For example, here brackets and a summary indicate omitted text.

2. If you have parallel resources for the text, there is a simple way to find a fuller text without checking each possibility separately.

3. Under Tools ==> Passage, open Compare Text.

4. It will open with the top resources that contain the same passage ... at a glance you can see which have a more complete text.

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