Against Heresies

By: Irenaeus

St. Irenaeus, Bishop of Lyons, describes several schools of Gnosticism which were prevalent among pre-Nicene Christianity. He then refutes these beliefs as heresies by contrasting them with what he describes as catholic, orthodox Christianity. Against Heresies demonstrates that earliest Christianity was a fascinating and diverse plethora of beliefs, debates, and schisms. (Summary by JoeD)...

By: Martin Luther

A summary of Lutheran doctrine, written by Martin Luther in 1537 for a meeting of the Schmalkaldic League in preparation for an intended ecumenical Council of the Church.

Bible (ASV) NT 22: 2 Peter

By: American Standard Version

The Second Epistle of Peter is a book of the New Testament of the Bible. According to the epistle itself, it was written by the apostle Peter, an eyewitness to Jesus' ministry. He criticizes false teachers who distort the authentic, apostolic tradition, and predicts judgement for them. He explains that God has delayed the Second Coming so that more people will have the chance to reject evil and find salvation. He calls on Christians to wait patiently for the parousia and to study scripture. (Summary from Wikipedia)...

Conceptions of Divine Love

By: Santa Teresa de Jesus (Avila)

Conceptions of Divine Love was written in 1577. St. Teresa wrote this with the idea of explaining certain words found in the Book of Canticles. When her confessor read the title of her work, he ordered her to immediately burn it, which, of course, she did. But one of her nuns had copied the first seven chapters, which was then published in 1612. Here, Father John Dalton has translated only four of those chapters in 1852. (Summary by Ann Boulais)...

Bible (STE) NT 21-22: Επιστολαις Πέτρου Α'-Β' (1-2 Peter)

By: Stephanos 1550

H Επιστολή αυτή γράφτηκε στην Ρώμη το 50-56 μ.χ Ο Άγιος Παύλος προτρέπει τους Χριστιανούς να χαίρονται στις θλίψεις. Θα πρέπει να δέχονται τις αδικίες που προκαλούν θλίψη με την συναίσθηση και πίστη ότι μέσα από αυτές θα οδηγηθούν και θα ζήσουν τον θάνατο και την ανάσταση. Με αυτό τον τρόπο γίνονται μέτοχοι στον θάνατο του Ιησού Χριστού και στην ανάσταση του. Η Ημερομηνία της δεύτερης επιστολής βρίσκεται πιθανότατα ανάμεσα στο 63-67 μετά Χριστό , ενώ βρισκόταν στην φυλακή της Ρώμης ο Απόστολος Παύλος. Ο κόσμος απιστεί , εξαπατά και χλευάζει, όμως οι χριστιανοί θα πρέπει να διατηρούν το χριστιανικό τρόπο ζωής , συνεχώς αυξανόμενοι σε αγιότητα και σε αρετές και ποτέ δεν θα πρέπει να στραφούν πίσω στον παλιό τρόπο ζωής. The first epistle of Saint Peter was written in Rome 50-67 A.D. Saint Peter exhorts Christians to rejoice in suffering. They should enter into unjust suffering with a spirit of death and resurrection. Thus they partake in Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection. The date of the second epistle is most likely A.D 63-67. Saint Peter has probably written this letter while he was kept in prison in Rome. The people to whom he w...

Bible (ASV) 13: 1 Chronicles

By: American Standard Version

The Books of Chronicles (Hebrew Divrei Hayyamim, דברי הימים, Greek Paralipomenon, Παραλειπομένων) are part of the Hebrew Bible (Jewish Tanakh and Christian Old Testament). In the Masoretic Text, it appears as the first or last book of the Ketuvim (the latter arrangement also making it the final book of the Jewish bible). Chronicles largely parallels the Davidic narratives in the Books of Samuel and the Books of Kings. It appears in two parts (I & II Chronicles), immediately following 1 & 2 Samuel and 1 & 2 Kings as a summary of them with minor details sometimes added. The division of Chronicles and its place in the Christian canon of the Old Testament are based upon the Septuagint. The author of Chronicles, termed the Chronicler, may also have written Ezra and Nehemiah. His work is an important source of information about Israel after the Babylonian exile....

On Piety

By: Jean Guibert

Father Jean Guibert of the Society of St. Sulpice served as superior of the Catholic Institute of Paris. He wrote this short book, which bears an imprimatur, for both those who practice piety and those who disdain it. As noted in the preface to this book, the practice of piety has many advantages. The pious person is drawn into closer contact with God, his heart is purified and made glad, his mind is enlightened, his will is strengthened, and his zeal to love God and neighbor is enkindled. In Part I (Chapters 1-11), Father Guibert discusses the nature of piety, and in Part II (Chapters 12-18), he enumerates its fruits. The sequel to On Piety is Guibert's On the Exercises of Piety, which illustrates how piety is practiced in various ways. (Summary by dave7)...

Miscellaneous Pieces

By: John Bunyan

John Bunyan (November 28, 1628 – August 31, 1688), a Christian writer and preacher, was born at Harrowden (one mile south-east of Bedford), in the Parish of Elstow, England. He wrote The Pilgrim's Progress, arguably the most famous published Christian allegory. In the Church of England he is remembered with a Lesser Festival on 30 August. Bunyan became a popular preacher as well as a prolific author, though most of his works consist of expanded sermons. In theology he was a Puritan, but there was nothing gloomy about him. The portrait his friend Robert White drew, which has often been reproduced, shows the attractiveness of his true character. (Summary from Wikipedia)...

Bondage of the Will, The

By: Martin Luther

On the Bondage of the Will (Latin: 'De Servo Arbitrio', literally, On Un-free Will, or Concerning Bound Choice), by Martin Luther, was published in December 1525. It was his reply to Desiderius Erasmus's De libero arbitrio diatribe sive collatio or On Free Will , which had appeared in September 1524 as Erasmus's first public attack on Luther, after being wary about the methods of the reformer for many years. At issue was whether human beings, after the Fall of Man, are free to choose good or evil. The debate between Luther and Erasmus is one of the earliest of the Reformation over the issue of free will and predestination....
