Church Fathers


Hey all.

I’m looking to get my hands on the collection of the writings of the Early Church Fathers, without commentary from the translator/editor.

I want to read the church fathers firsthand without hearing someone elses opinion of what they were writing about. Hopefully I can get a non-biased translation, but scholarly. I know that there are about 30-40 volumes in the complete writings of the fathers, but I’ll read them all…Any suggestions?


Here is one popular resource:


The cheapest place to get the entire set is Christian Book Distributors at


I just looked it up: 38 volumes for $300. However, if you get on their mailing list, they have frequent sales; I think my set sold new at $200.


Here you go:

It’s all there, and it’s free!
