Patristics is the study of the Church Fathers especially from the sub-apostolic age through the conciliar period of the Seven Ecumenical Councils. Not every ancient Christian writer is considered a Church Father by the Orthodox Church as they may have heretical tendencies and some of their teachings were rejected by the Church. Even so, the extant writings of those not recognized as Church Fathers such as Origen and Tertullian may be read with prudence. This will enable students in patrology to grasp the context by which Church Fathers and the various Councils put forth their anathemata against various heretical teachings that the early Church has to combat against. Bear in mind also that much of the English and Chinese translations and introductions of Patristic writings available online today are from non-Orthodox sources and therefore should not be read uncritically. Links to various patristic resources, both Orthodox and non-Orthodox, are provided herein as references to assist those who are interested in making a Chinese Orthodox translation and compilation.
