Cosimo, Inc., May 1, 2007 - Religion - 704 pages
"One of the first great events in Christian history was the Council of Nicaea in 325 AD, convened to organize Christian sects and beliefs into a unified doctrine. The great Christian clergymen who wrote before this famous event are referred to as the Ante-Nicenes and the Apostolic Fathers, and their writings are collected here in a ten-volume set. The Ante-Nicenes lived so close to the time of Christ that their interpretations of the New Testament are considered more authentic than modern voices. But they are also real and flawed men, who are more like their fellow Christians than they are like the Apostles, making their words echo in the ears of spiritual seekers. In Volume IV of the 10-volume collected works of the Ante-Nicenes first published between 1885 and 1896, readers will find the writings of: Tertullian, a Christian apologist and influential Latin Christian thinker Minucius Felix, known for his dialog Octavius Commodianus, a Latin poet who converted to Christianity Origen, a prolific writer and theologian."
