Item Description...
The late Professor Panagiotes K. Chrestou of Aristotle University of Thessalonica, Greece, is justly regarded as the leading Greek Patrologist of the twentieth century. The present volume is a foretaste of Professor Chrestou's Greek Patrology. Its great value will be realized by anyone who decides to delve into these pages. It provides a bird's eye view of Greek Orthodox Patrology, and elucidates in a thorough and succinct way such basic topics as: who the Fathers are; the historical context of patristic literature; the nature and characteristics of Greek patristic literature; and the seven major periods of patristic literature from AD 90 through 1453, the capture of Constantinople.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Not a patrology  Mar 5, 2008
The title of this book is misleading. It is NOT a patrology, in the way that Altaner and Quasten are.

Under this title we expect a series of sections, one per patristic author. Each section gives details of his life, with bibliography; then each of his works, describing it, giving editions and translations and studies, and then the next.

Instead this book is apparently some introductory matter from the first volume of a patrology in modern Greek. Some 30 pages are devoted to a general discussion of the Jews in the Hasmonean period; more to an overview of Roman religion. Neither has any place in a patrology. These vague essays contain few footnotes, and some of the statements are wrong. The Roman cult of Mithras probably is not of Iranian origin. The fathers of Nicaea only number 318 in later texts, not in those written within a century of the events.

I felt rather cheated by this. The translator indicates that he produced the volume for teaching purposes, and that he only included the first half of volume 1 of this Greek patrology by Chrestou. He also says that in a subsequent edition he hopes to translate the rest. This would be good, and interesting; but in the mean time it is unclear to whom this book will be of use.
