A rare look into 5 centuries of church history
The series covers a vast swath of Christian history: it includes works from both the Ante-Nicene and the Post-Nicene eras, from both the Greek and the Latin Fathers of the Nicene era, and especially from Augustine of Hippo. You’ll get an unparalleled look at Tertullian’s foundations for Latin apologetics and Christianity, Chrysostom’s homilies, Jerome’s profoundly influential Commentary on Matthew, and much more.
Studying these texts in Logos 5 equips you to get more from your research. You won’t read in a vacuum; instead, you’ll explore these documents alongside the best Bible dictionaries, maps, and timelines, so you can fully immerse yourself in ancient culture. Links to other patristic writings bring you straight to the source—not just to the right book, but to the right page—giving you instant context. Footnotes appear on mouseover, as well as references to Scripture and extrabiblical material in your library, and you can perform near-instant searches across all these volumes.

- Origen’s Commentary on the Gospel according to John, Books 13–32 is widely thought to mark the beginning of Christian scriptural exegesis. This version offers the first full English translation.
