Fathers of the Church: In Print

The Fathers of the Church series is comprised of the known sermons of the founding fathers of the Christian church. It includes the sermons of the Ante-Nicene Fathers (early Christian sermons up to the First Council of Nicaea in 325 CE) and the Nicene Fathers (post-First Council of Nicaea). There is no scriptural index for The Fathers of the Church, so it is not possible to search for specific references to verses within the sermons. As a result, you are better off only referring to sermons that are specifically mentioned in other commentaries about the verse you are researching.

A print set of The Fathers of the Church is available through the Library up to Volume 68. Each volume of the set focuses on the works of a different Church father or group of fathers. However, as they are not used frequently, they are stored in the Archive and can take up to 24 hours to retrieve. You may request the volume or volumes you need at the Reference desk, or by e-mailing the College librarians.
