A monumental work that presents a solid introduction to early Christian literature to the English reading public. It is the first work of its kind written originally in English. Reviewers were unanimous in heaping praise upon the publication and looking upon it as a breakthrough in studying the Fathers of the Church. This achievement was completed with the publication of Patrology, Volume IV. Because of health difficulties, Johannes Quasten was unable to finish his masterwork. Fortunately, the Augustinian Patristic Institute of Rome decided to complete the Patrology; its work is translated under the direction of Angelo di Berardino in the present volume IV.
This is a superb piece of work that is an absolute necessity for even the smallest theological collection.”
