The Apostolic Fathers

November 17, 2016 Length: 1:05:59

Patristic Nectar Publications is pleased to present a five-part lecture series by Father Josiah Trenham entitled THE APOSTOLIC FATHERS. This collection of the earliest post-New Testament Christian literature is replete with inspiring examples of Christian devotion and provides a valuable window into both the significant personalities and the spiritual and theological ethos of the Christian generations immediately following the Apostolic period. These texts are also of great apologetic value in the contemporary pluralistic milieu in which Orthodox Christians dwell in the West. The lecture titles are as follows:

Lecture #1 The Epistle of St. Clement of Rome to the Corinthians
Lecture #2 The Letters of St. Ignatius of Antioch
Lecture #3 The Epistle and Martyrdom of St. Polycarp of Smyrna
Lecture #4 The Epistle of Barnabas and the Didache
Lecture #5 The Epistle to Diognetus and the Shepherd of Hermas
