The Didache, the Epistle of Barnabas, the Epistles and the Martyrdom of St. Polycarp, the Fragments of Papias, the Epistle to Diognetus

   
Newly Translated and Annotated by James A. Kleist, S.J.

No. 6 of Ancient Christian Writers: The Works of the Fathers in Translation

“The Didache or The Teaching of the Twelve Apostles, has been hailed as the most important patristic find in the latter half of the nineteenth century. The manuscript, dated 1056, was discovered, together with other valuable early writings, by the Orthodox Metropolitan Bryennios at Constantinople in 1873 and published by him ten years later. The Didache purports to be an instruction based on the sayings of the Lord and given by the Twelve Apostles to pagans who wished to become Christians. Part I[...]is an epitome of Christian morality, suited to pagan candidates for baptism. [...]Part II[...]is a ritual or liturgical summary. [...]Part III[...], the canonical section, broadly outlines Church organization and Church life.”
