The order in which the proverbs are presented holds a secret key to each proverb`s interpretation. The order of the whole functions as a spiritual road map for the arduous journey that leads through the exercise of love and temperance to the mind`s knowledge of the Holy Trinity.

THE EARLY CHURCH FATHERS: ANTE-NICENE FATHERS (10 VOLUMES) EDITED BY ALEXANDER ROBERTS, JAMES DONALDSON, PHILIP SCHAFF, AND HENRY WACE DESCRIPTIONREVIEWSTHE ANTE-NICENE FA

Author: #: 10292
The Ante-Nicene Fathers ranges from the Apostolic Fathers to various third and fourth century sources including the liturgies and ancient Syriac documents. It was intended to comprise translations into English of all the extant works of the Fathers (with the exception of the more bulky works of Origen) down to the date of the first General Council held at Nicaea in 325 A.D. This American edition by Arthur Cleveland Coxe is a revision of the original series edited by Alexander Roberts and Sir James Donaldson and published in Edinburgh. The revision involves a major rearrangement to conform to the historical sequence, the addition of brief introductions and notes indicating variances in readings, specifying references to scripture or literature, clarifying obscure passages, and noting corruptions or distortions of patristic testimony (as forged in the Decretals). The basic aim of the translations has been to strive for literary exactness, placing the English reader as nearly as possible on an equal footing with those who are able to read the original.
