An introduction to the history of the early church. Originally published in four volumes. this edition consists of two paperback volumes, each containing two of the original volumes. Professor Lietzmann charts the history of Christianity from its founding to the beginning of monasticism in the fourth century AD. The first volume of this edition includes "The Beginning of the Christian Church" and "The Founding of the Church Universal". It covers the period from the ministry of John The Baptist to the death of Origen. There are enlightening character studies of such figures as Tertullian and Origen, and chapters on the principal problems confronting the early church. In the second volume. "From Constantine to Julian" and "The Era of the Church Fathers", Professor Lietzmann recounts the period in which the Church emerged from the persecution under Diocletian to the comparative security under Constantine. There is treatment of the Arian controversy, the dramatic encounters between Ambrose and the Emperor Theadosius I. accounts of the formative influences in Eastern Orthodoxy, and a concluding chapter on the origins of monasticism. The bibliography has been updated by Professor W.H.C. Frend, who has also written a new introduction.
