That's the general custom, but I would have to see the specific citation to be sure.

No page is correct. We wrestled with including some other sort of location indicator (paragraph number, title, etc.), but none of the style guides dictate this. And, our goal is to add pages to all heavily cited resources. For some large ones (Church Fathers), this might take a while. We largely rely on 'volunteers' who are students, and I've found that it's difficult to get a student to commit large blocks of time to this.

Hope that helps…

For what it is worth, CCEL's online version of the Church Fathers includes the page numbers. Since the NPNF and ANF can be so tricky to document, SBL recommends that you use volume and page number: (NPNF4.221), for example, would be the final page of Athanasius's Life of Antony. Since it is such a bear to search the individual volumes in Accordance's CF modules, I've taken to using CCEL's site (http://www.ccel.org/fathers.html).

Actually - not as hard to do in Accordance as I first thought. In the 'browser' pane just right-click on the section of NPNF that you'd like to search in and select "Select Range". Super easy and more useful than CCEL.

You can also Option-click to select that range, in addition to the right-click menu.
