Endorsements

This collection of documents from the world of early Christianity is not only handy but also enlightening. Here, one has immediate access to ancient words on Gnosticism and Arianism, baptism and persecution, and canon and controversy. Here, in the antique, one may find something rare, something lovely, something new.
D. Jeffrey Bingham,
professor of theological studies, Dallas Theological Seminary

Professors of early Christianity will enthusiastically welcome the reprinting of these two extremely well-selected and unsurpassed collections of documents [A New Eusebius and Creeds, Councils and Controversies]. These two textbooks have long set the standard for collections of original documents illustrating the practices and thought of early Christians. It is extremely useful for those who teach this period to have these texts back in print.
Kevin Madigan,
Winn Professor of Ecclesiastical History, The Divinity School, Harvard University

J. Stevenson's classic two-volume compilation, A New Eusebius and Creeds, Councils, and Controversies, assembles snippets from a wide range of hard-to-find materials: acts of Christian martyrs, conciliar documents, fragments from heretics and persecutors, inscriptions on coins and catacombs, snatches of gossip in scattered letters. The final result is a brilliant mosaic of early Christianity.
William Harmless,
author of Augustine in His Own Words
