The Apostolic Fathers is an important collection of writings revered by early Christians but not included in the final canon of the New Testament. Here Michael Holmes, a leading expert on these texts, offers an authoritative contemporary translation, in the tradition of the 1891 work of J. B. Lightfoot and J. R. Harmer.

The third edition features numerous changes, including carefully revised translations. The introduction, notes, and bibliographies have been freshly revised as well.

Includes the following:

  • First and Second Clement
  • Epistles of Ignatius
  • Epistle of Polycarp
  • Martyrdom of Polycarp
  • Didache
  • Epistle of Barnabas
  • Shepherd of Hermas
  • Epistle to Diognetus
  • Fragment of Quadratus
  • Fragments of Papias
  • Traditions of the Elders

This English translation is formatted to run in parallel with the tagged Greek text and is included with the purchase of that module.  Also included are revised critical apparatus, introductions, and footnotes.
