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. This volume contains the writings of the Seven Ecumenical Councils: the First Council of Nicaea, the First Council of Constantinople, the Council of Ephesus, the Council of Chalcedon, the Second Council of Constantinople, the Third Council of Constantinople, and the Second Council of Nicaea. The Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers provide keen translations of instructive and illuminating texts from some of the great theologians of the Christian church. -Tim Perrine, CCEL Staff Writer
