Cosimo, Inc., May 1, 2007 - Religion - 640 pages
"One of the first great events in Christian history was the Council of Nicaea in 325 AD, convened to organize Christian sects and beliefs into a unified doctrine. The great Christian clergymen who wrote before this famous event are referred to as the Ante-Nicenes and the Apostolic Fathers, and their writings are collected here in a ten-volume set. The Ante-Nicenes lived so close to the time of Christ that their interpretations of the New Testament are considered more authentic than modern voices. But they are also real and flawed men, who are more like their fellow Christians than they are like the Apostles, making their words echo in the ears of spiritual seekers. In Volume II of the 10-volume collected works of the Ante-Nicenes first published between 1885 and 1896, readers will find the writings of: the Pastor of Hermas, author of a popular book in the Ante-Nicene era Tatian, a second-century theologian Theophilus, a Christian convert and early apologist Athenagoras, a Christian convert and accomplished philosopher and Clement of Alexandria, who wrote Protrepticus, Paedagogus, and Stromata."
