Ante-Nicene Fathers – VOL I – IX

Posted on | December 2, 2010 | 26 Comments

Ante-Nicene Fathers download as ebook PDF

Merry Christmas. Here are the complete Ante-Nicene works subtitled “The Writings of the Fathers Down to A.D. 325” – about 11.000 pages. The collection of books consists of 10 volumes (one volume is indexes and I could not find this in a electronic version) containing English translations of the majority of Early Christian writings. The period covers the beginning of Christianity until before the promulgation of the Nicene Creed at the First Council of Nicaea. The translations are very faithful, but sometimes rather old-fashioned. These translations are now in the Public Domain, they were first published in 1897 in United States. My guess is that you would also be delighted to know that I also have the entire 14 volumes of Nicene and post-Nicene fathers of the Christian church.

The Apostolic Fathers
Originally printed in 1885, the ten-volume set, Ante-Nicene Fathers, brings together the work of early Christian thinkers. In particular, it brings together the writings of the early Church fathers prior to the fourth century Nicene Creed.
Written by: Schaff, Philip (1819-1893)
Published by: Grand Rapids, MI: Christian Classics Ethereal Library
Edition: 2001 Repring

    Wow, thank you for posting these!

    I also wanted to bring to your attention a typo in your “The Apostolic Fathers” grey box. The edition is currently showing as

    “Edition: 2001 Repring”

    It should be “Reprint” instead.
