I aim rather at connecting the history of the Church during the first four centuries with the lives of her principal Fathers and Teachers.

The interest which attaches to the human and personal element of biography - which Carlyle called the most universally pleasant and profitable of all reading - is to a certain extent separable from the religious history, and yet is so closely connected with it that biography and history serve the purpose of mutual illustration. Any one who is familiar with the lives of the chief Church writers will scarcely be ignorant of any event of capital importance which occurred during the epoch in which they lived.It is true that much has been written on this subject, and far better than I can write it.

I might almost use the modest language of an excellent French writer, and say, All that I here write has been said elsewhere, has been said previously, has been said better. On the other hand, apart from histories of the Church or of Christianity, there have been but few attempts since the days of Cave to write consecutively the lives of the Fathers- and of these not many can be said to be generally current.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
