With over twenty volumes, the Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers is a momentous achievement. Originally gathered by Philip Schaff, the Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers is a collection of writings by classical and medieval Christian theologians. The purpose of such a collection is to make their writings readily available. The entire work is divided into two series, each with fourteen volumes. The second series focuses on a variety of important Church Fathers, ranging from the fourth century to the eighth century. Several works of St. Ambrose are collected in this volume. Along with St. Gregory the Great, St. Jerome, and St. Augustine, St. Ambrose is considered one of the original Doctors of the Church. He played an important role in the conversion of St. Augustine. The Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers are comprehensive in scope, and provide keen translations of instructive and illuminating texts from some of the great theologians of the Christian church. -Tim Perrine, CCEL Staff Writer
