A Dictionary of Early Christian Biography: A Reference Guide to Over 800 Men and Women, Heretics, and Sects of the First Six Centuries

Discover essential, reliable information on over 800 Christian personalities, groups, and literature to the end of the sixth century AD in this unique, concise volume. It includes descriptions of the principal sects and heresies that challenged orthodox Christianity on several fronts during the early years. A remarkably comprehensive work, this volume evolved from the distinguished four-volume Dictionary of Christian Biography and Literature. For anyone serious about the early church and the people who made indelible marks in its story, this is a fundamental resource.


Henry Wace (1836-1924), former Dean of Canterbury and noted turn-of-the century scholar, author and editor, is especially known for his work on the four volume Dictionary of Christian Biography and with Philip Schaff on the fourteen-volume Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers, Second Series. William C Piercy was a church historian and editor who lived during the early twentieth century.
