The Kingdom of God in the Writings of the Fathers

Exploring the concept of the kingdom of God, this thesis is based on Patristic sources from the time of Clement of Rome to that of John of Damascus. Herrick begins with the Apostolic Fathers to set the stage for the major divisions that follow. Divided into the Ante-Nicene Fathers and the Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers, the sources are divided into the Greek and Latin traditions and the major theologians and historic sources are examined for what they indicate about the theme. Written in non-technical language, this volume is readable by laity and specialists alike.

Exploring the concept of the kingdom of God, this thesis is based on Patristic sources from the time of Clement of Rome to that of John of Damascus. Herrick begins with the Apostolic Fathers to set the stage for the major divisions that follow. Divided into the Ante-Nicene Fathers and the Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers, the sources are divided into the Greek and Latin traditions and the major theologians and historic sources are examined for what they indicate about the theme. Noting that prior to Augustine’s City of God no known thesis on this important theme exists, Herrick notes that such a resource as this book is necessary to understand what early Christians believed on the topic. While there is no specific treatise, the subject is widely addressed in scattered literature, and it is this material that Herrick has skillfully culled here to provide a single resource on an essential Christian doctrine. Written in non-technical language, this volume is readable by laity and specialists alike.

Henry Martyn Herrick (1861-1923) attended Yale Divinity School and earned his Ph.D. at the University of Chicago. This volume is his published thesis.

Picture of Athanasius' Use of the Gospel of John

Athanasius' Use of the Gospel of John

The Orations against the Arians are an important landmark in the development of Christological and Trinitarian doctrine. The Orations contain extensive references to the Christian Scriptures and are steeped in rhetoric. The use of Scripture and polemical rhetoric against Athanasius’ theological opponents, the Arians, is intricately interwoven. This monograph offers a rhetorical analysis of the Orations against the Arians to demonstrate the interplay of scriptural reasoning and polemic in Athanasius’ work. In this way, Boezelman’s study provides a fresh perspective on the reception of John’s Gospel in the fourth century.

Picture of Life of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Life of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Different parts of the Life of the Blessed Virgin Mary are known from the second century onwards. Translations and adaptations into Syriac and other languages also became available from very early centuries. The compilation in the Syriac language was translated into Malayalam in 1925, but an English translation containing the full text did not exist at all. This gap has been filled now by this work. Sebastian Brock’s Foreword gives important information on the background and authenticity of the different sources that form the basis of the text. This biography is unique in that it brings together some very early accounts of the birth of Mary, the birth of Jesus, the flight into Egypt, and most importantly, the very rare account of the ‘Dormition’ or ‘falling asleep’ of the Blessed Mother.
