Orthodox Saints & Patristic Church Fathers (207)
Beginning to Read the Fathers is an introduction to the Church`s earliest writers, preachers and theologians. It presupposes no more knowledge on the part of the reader than that the Fathers existed and that their ideas might be important and perhaps even interesting. The book does not restrict itself to such topics as Christology and ecclesiology but includes other areas, like martyrdom and prayer, which were highly important in shaping the mind and heart of the early Church.

In his missionary journeys, St. Paul spoke in a number of cities in the Greek peninsula including Athens, renowned for its philosophical heritage. He addressed to them the message of the One, Unknown God (Acts 17:22ff). Among those present in the Areopagus (the open city center of Athens) on that day was a certain Denys (Dionysios) who eventually became a disciple of Paul.

Composing a handbook on the spiritual life is not altogether different from writing a work of art, music, or painting. A real manual must not start from a rigid framework or pretend that the rules it proposes are complete, infallible, and always and everywhere valid. Yet such rules, precisely because they are rules, are usually the result of a long experience lived first by those who had a sense of the beautiful and then by larger groups and circles. In this manner the original experiences evolve into a tradition. from the Introduction

The most fitting word with which to describe the Church Fathers` attitude toward women is ambivalence. Women were God`s creation, his good gift to men and the curse of the world. They were weak in both mind and character and displayed dauntless courage, undertook prodigious feats of scholarship. Vain, deceitful, brimming with lust they led men to Christ, fled sexual encounter, wavered not at the executioner`s threats, adorned themselves with sackcloth and ashes. Leaving the examination of the Fathers psyches to other specialists, this volume documents from an historical perspecitve the ways in which the Fathers praised and blamed, honored and disparaged the female sex.
