Item description for The Fathers of the Church by Hans Von Campenhausen...

Hans von Campenhausen's two volumes, The Fathers of the Greek Church and The Fathers of the Latin Church, are combined into one volume in this new edition. The Fathers of the Church traditionally describes the orthodox writers of the early church. The church came to regard these figures as the exponents of divine truth in the age when the church was taking shape. Their interpretations of the early creeds of the church were decisively influential for all later theology. Written with remarkable fluency, this book contains biographical studies of twelve of the most important of the Greek Fathers and seven of the most important of the Latin Fathers. Professor von Campenhausen places the Church Fathers in the context of their own times and surroundings and describes their personalities, intellectual aims, and contribution to the church's life or doctrine in an engaging style that is a pleasure to read. This is a wonderful introduction to these influential early Christians for scholar and layperson alike.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Fathers of the Church?

"A Documented Pantheon of the Early Church Fathers"  May 2, 2001
Hans Von Campenhausen, the former chair of ecclesiastical studies at the University of Heidelberg, has in this work compiled an in-depth biographical study of the Greek and Latin Fathers of the Church. The approach taken by Von Campenhausen is not strictly 'historical,' but in a sense places an emphasis on the personality and thought of the Church Fathers. It depicts the intellectual aims and achievements of the Church Fathers within the context of their own time. The colorful accounts of these orthodox writers, composed by Von Campenhausen, will impart a lasting image of the thinkers that championed the Christian faith. This book will be an invaluable resource for the scholar and student alike. This work is a definite companion to aid anyone who to wishes to find a comprehensive yet succint guide into the theological and ecclesiastical milieu of the early church.
