    What do you mean? They were published after the other books came to Logos, but are available.

  • Re: Dataset search of Trinity to find grammatical and historical constructions

    Quite frankly, I wouldn't, and I am not at all sure that it would help. IIRC the term "trinity" was coined by Tertullian in Latin in the 3rd Century, and went into Patristic Greek shortly after. And the Fathers found that they had to rip apart words that had been considered synonyms in order to express the mystery of God, even as they felt called to

  • Re: Church Fathers on The Gospel of John

    The obvious ones to me would be: Origen : Incomplete, and questionably orthodox, yet brilliant. John Chrysostom : Probably the most famous preacher in the early Greek church. His concerns and style are not what we are used to, but you can see more than a bit why when you read his sermons. Cyril of Alexandria : A great theologian developing the Christology

  • Re: Ancient Christian Texts Collection VS Ancient Christian Commentary

    The Fathers covers a vast number of figures who wrote in many different areas and times. So obviously there are lots of writings from them. Much more than most of us can ever read. ACC deals with this by trying to collect from this vast library various comments on Scripture and arrange it as a commentary for us to use. In the fact that we share Scripture
