The Early Church (33-313)
St Peter, the Apostles, and Martyrs
Author: James Papandrea
Reclaiming Catholic History series
The first three centuries of the Christian faith were a period of missionary zeal, deep thought and tribulation. A Catholic historian and biblical expert dispels what he calls “common mythconceptions” about the early years.
Tracking the challenges of heresy and persecution throughout the period, Papandrea shines a spotlight on the earliest saints and explores the growth and development of the new Church.
“James Papanadrea has done more than anyone to cast light on the obscure early centuries of Christianity. He has then taken the extra step of making his findings accessible to non-academic readers.”
