Product Description

A volume from the Ad Fontes: Early Christian Sources series, Understandings of the Church explores a rich variety of early Christian imagery used by biblical writers and early Christian teachers such as Cyprian, Ignatius of Antioch, Tertullian, Clement of Alexandria, and Origen to describe the communal aspect of Christian life and faith. This emphasis stands in contrast to the individualistic approach of so many of the expressions of modern Western Christianity. Most of these images are rooted in biblical usage and testify not only to the importance of the church in Christian thought, but also to the relationship of the church to key theological concepts. Developed in light of recent patristic scholarship, the volumes will provide a representative sampling of theological contributions from both East and West.

About the Series

Ad Fontes: Early Christian Sources series is designed to present ancient Christian texts essential to an understanding of Christian theology, ecclesiology, and practice. The series aims to provide volumes that are relevant for a variety of courses, including classes on theology, biblical interpretation, and church history. The goal of each volume is not to be exhaustive, but rather representative enough to denote for a non-specialist audience the multivalent character of early Christian thought, allowing readers to see how and why early Christian doctrine and practice developed the way it did.
