"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    I recently came across two very helpful websites. The first, Documenta Catholica Omnia, is a huge compendium of every extant writing of all the church fathers, extending well into the Medieval period. All the originals are included (mostly Latin and Greek, but occasionally in Syriac or some other minor language), and any available translation into English or other modern languages, when not protected by copyright laws, is also provided. A phenomenal way to become more acquainted with the theological growth of the early Church, and to realize just how great our debt is to those fathers who gave their lives for the clarification and explication of the one, holy, and catholic faith (and by "catholic" I don't mean any of the popery that grew up later as a cankerous plague!). The second is an online, searchable version of Liddell and Scott's classic and hugely helpful Greek-English lexicon. Searching by Latin transliteration makes it easy to use with a standard keyboard. For instance, if you want the Greek word for "faith," you would just type in the Latin transliteration "pistis," and the corresponding word would pop up in Greek characters. Enjoy!

    Hi Nathan

    Can you point me to the English. Did not find any.

    Sure John,

    The site map is here, but you'll have to navigate it in Latin :(. However, the names of the authors should be close enough to English that you can recognize them. Then, if you click on a name, there will be a list of all his works, in various languages. Look for "EN", that will be a document in English. For example, say you want to find Ignatius in English. You can find his name in the site map (the quickest way is to look under "apostolic fathers" ("Patres Apostolici") -- but if you don't know enough Latin, just keep scrolling and eventually you'll find his name. Then just click on it, and it will take you to a page of his works here. The second section of this page has all his works in English.

    Hope this helps,
