Early Church Fathers – Additional Texts


NB: Little of this literature has spiritual value, The value of this literature is elsewhere.  A great deal of mythology circulates about the events of these years, and is sometimes used to concoct libels on the Christians.  It is the task of some of those engaged in apologetic’s to look up the slanders and obtain the facts.  A collection of the primary data such as this is of immediate service in this task.   It is also interesting of itself, and those interested in finding out the facts of history for themselves will find it useful to have this data on hand. Roger Pearse

The Apology

Preface to the online edition

In the printed edition of the Ante-Nicene Fathers, volume 10 contains a translation in parallel columns of both the Greek and the Syriac texts of the Apology of Aristides.  However the translation itself is absent from the Christian Classics Ethereal Library, perhaps because it was found hard to layout.  I have scanned this, but I gather it will not appear soon online.  Rather than have this most interesting text offline, I have departed from the general approach of this collection, and included it here.
