Item Description...
Beginning with Origen's pioneering third-century commentary, the latest installment of the Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture features patristic scholarship and exegesis of the first gospel from the period of Clement of Rome to John of Damascus in the eighth century. Homilies from Chrysostom, Chromatius, Augustine, and others provide added insight. Includes the RSV Scripture text.

Publishers Description
The Gospel of Matthew stands out as a favorite biblical text among patristic commentators. The patristic commentary tradition on Matthew begins with Origen's pioneering twenty-five-volume commentary on the First Gospel in the mid-third century. In the Latin-speaking West, where commentaries did not appear until about a century later, the first commentary on Matthew was written by Hilary of Poitiers in the mid-fourth century. From that point, the First Gospel became one of the texts most frequently commented on in patristic exegesis. Outstanding examples are Jerome's four-volume commentary and the valuable but anonymous and incomplete Opus imperfectum in Matthaeum. Then there are the Greek catena fragments derived from commentaries by Theodore of Heraclea, Apollinaris of Laodicea, Theodore of Mopsuestia and Cyril of Alexandria. The ancient homilies also provide ample comment, including John Chrysostom's ninety homilies and Chromatius of Aquileia's fifty-nine homilies on the Gospel of Matthew. In addition, there are various Sunday and feast-day homilies from towering figures such as Augustine and Gregory the Great, as well as other fathers. This rich abundance of patristic comment, much of it presented here in English translation for the first time by editor Manlio Simonetti, provides a bountiful and varied feast of ancient interpretation of the First Gospel.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Truly Important Series  Jul 21, 2005
The Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture Series fills a much neglected void and makes patristic commentary on the Bible accessible to laymen. I cannot recommend this series highly enough. Anyone interested in the early Church, the Fathers, or the formation of the canon will find these commentaries extremely helpful. I would also recommend the companion study giude Reading Scripture with the Church Fathers.

The only weakness of these volumes is that they provide short "snippets" of commentary by a particular Father on a particular passage, so one doesn't get the complete context from the referenced material, however the series' format makes this unavoidable. This series makes the commentary of the Fathers accessible to modern readers. I highly recomend that all Christians, Catholic, Orthodox and Protestant explore the thought of the Fathers and this series will afford them that ability.
Wonderful Commentary  Mar 8, 2005
This is a great collection of the writings of the ancient fathers of the Christian Church. One can see how the fathers interpreted Scriptures, where they agreed, disagreed, and when certain doctrines formed during different periods, etc. Yet, with all that they remained one united Catholic Church. The modern Church can learn a lot from the fathers, especially when it comes to Unity. Highly recommended for all Christians.
