Review: Ante-Nicene Fathers 5: Fathers of the Third Century: Hippolytus; Cyprian; Caius; Novatian; Appendix
Ante-Nicene Fathers 5: Fathers of the Third Century: Hippolytus; Cyprian; Caius; Novatian; Appendix by Alexander Roberts
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The writings of the great Church Fathers St. Hippolytus of Rome and St. Cyprian of Carthage was well as of Caius and the heretic Novatian were fascinating throughout, of course. Particularly interesting to me was reading the correspondence of St. Cyprian throughout the years of the persecutions in North Africa. The editors might have served both themselves and their readers better had they cut down a bit on the anti-papal footnotes.
