This new Loeb edition of essential texts from the Apostolic Fathers reflects the latest emendations in light of modern idiom and current scholarship. Some of these writings were accorded almost Scriptural authority in the early Church, such as 1 and 2 Clement, the first of which, is a letter addressed to the church at Corinth from the church at Rome. Also included in this volume are the letters of Ignatius, bishop of Antioch, which were written while Ignatius was literally en route to his martyrdom in Rome. Additionally, the volume contains the letter of Polycarp to the Philippians, the famous account of Polycarp's martyrdom, and the Didache, which functioned as an early church manual for religious, worship, and ministry instruction. All of the texts appear in their original Greek and contain a page by page English translation.
