How England Became Christian. Posted by . One day, in the far-off sixth century, a youthful deacon of the Roman Church walked . Gregory resolved to be one of the latter. Mantel Jun 12, 2017 History, Religion 0. Non Angli, sed Angeli. One day, in the far-off sixth century, a youthful deacon of the Roman Church walked into the slave-market of Rome, situated at one extremity of the ancient Forum. Gregory, his name; his origin from an ancient noble family, whose genealogy could be traced back to the days of the early Caesars. A fair new field for missionary labor lay in that distant island, peopled by pagans whose aspect promised to make them noble subjects of Christ’s kingdom upon earth.

And, thankfully, Paul does not leave us in the dark as to how God does this supernatural work through human instruments. They turn from darkness to the light. That is, the whole stream of their affections flows out to the brightness and beauty of the light of the glory of Christ, and no longer flows in the other direction. They now hate the darkness and love the light.

Early Christianity developed in the period from Christian origins (c. 30–36) to the First Council of Nicaea (325). Church historians typically subdivide this period into the Apostolic Age (c. 30–100) and the Ante-Nicene Period (c. 100–325)

Early Christianity developed in the period from Christian origins (c. 100–325). Ju The first Christians were Jewish Christians, who formed a small, Apocalyptic substream within Judea Judaism.

The early Fathers of the Church theologians such as Chrysostom, Augustine, Ambrose, and others speak on these and other timeless topics. A priceless aid for any Christian who wishes to come to a deeper understanding of his or her own faith.

This book is so enlightening - it takes you through the initiation of an person into the early Catholic Church. It is a must reading for RCIA catechumens and anyone interested in early Church history. It extends the book of Acts with the writing of Augustine, John Chrysostom, Ambrose, Cyril of Jerusalem, and many others. Helps one understand and appreciate their Baptism, Lord's Prayer, The Creed and many other aspects of the Faith!

This is the best book I have ever seen about how early Christians were prepared for baptism at Easter - I re-read it every Lent. Sister Anne is admirably - and modestly - learned, editing the Lenten homilies of the early Church Fathers and bishops in a most accessible way.

Thank you

This is a different kind of presentation of doctrine and history. Good reading, but a bit less chronologically ordered than I was hoping for. Recommended if you are really interested in this material.

The early Church, especially the Ante Nicene period is a favourite subject of mine, and so I will read anything on that subject. This book is certainly about the early Church, however, I bought this book expecting something different from what I got, since I only had the title and subtitle to go by. It's about the Post Nicene period, and is basically a reconstruction of the catechesis (a 3 year pre-baptismal, pre-conversion period of instruction of a potential Christian) of that time. People in the early Church were not told to simply pray a prayer and they were in, it was something more serious than that. This book, more than just telling us how that happened, reconstructs from actual homilies (sermons) of famous pastors, bishops and theologians of the 4th and 5th centuries what was taught their catechumens (students or disciples).

Here is the blurb from the back of the book:

"I went down into those life-giving waters and was born again, a new man. All my doubts vanished. I could see what had been hidden from me. I could do what had been impossible.
St. Cyprian, A.D. 246

In the early centuries of the Church, baptism was a profound experience of personal conversion and redemption. Thousands of converts found in the baptismal waters what St. Cyprian describes-a new source of life, confidence, and power.

Anne field, an accomplished translator of early Christian writings, has reconstructed the teaching and rites that brought new Christians to this moment of grace. By carefully editing and paraphrasing texts that survive from fourth and fifth centuries, she takes her readers back through a course of instruction designed to change lives. St. Augustine (St. Augustine: His Life and Labors) teaches them how to pray the Lord's Prayer, St. Ambrose opens up the spiritual meaning of Scripture, St. John Chrysostom proclaims the message of salvation. Readers can follow the converts of old through all the dramatic rites of exorcism and consecration-right up to the awesome moment of their rebirth as children of God."
