The Bishop in the Church: Patristic Texts on the Role of the Episkopos


 Product Description

Editor: Agnes Cunningham, SSCM

Format: Paperback

Pages: 63

This is collection of patristic sayings (compiled by a Catholic patristics scholar) on the role of the bishop. The presentation of these texts in chronological order allows us to discern and follow a development of patristic through from Clement of Rome (c. 97) through Caesarius of Arles (470-543). Here, we can find admonitions to the faithful regarding the respect and obedience due to the bishop along with admonitions to the bishops themselves. The tone is at times exhortatory, at other times encouraging, even comforting. In many instances, we have the words of bishops addressing other bishops or sharing their personal reflections on the responsibilities of the episcopal ministry.
