On the Lord’s Prayer

   
Tertullian, Cyprian, Origen
Translated and introduced, With brief annotations by Alistair Stewart-Sykes

Number 29 of Popular Patristics Series

“The works presented here are the three ante-Nicene treatises on prayer that have been bequeathed to us. There is a certain diversity in the works. For whereas Tertullian and Cyprian not only have an obvious relationship, their works are likewise similar, and derive from the same liturgical context, for all of which reasons they share an introduction. Origen’s work is very different in character, and comes from a different part of the Empire, and therefore is introduced separately. Yet given the diversity of early Christianity and the divergent purpose of these works, as Richard Stuckwisch, in his summary and descriptive article on these treatises[...]points out, the extent of the material which they hold in common is quite remarkable. In particular, each sees the Lord’s Prayer as the model and summit of all Christian prayer. And each has much to teach us.”
