|The Bible through the
eyes of early Christian Writers
On the subscription version of the website there are separate pages for each book of the Bible giving a list of commentaries and homilies on the book by Christian writers from the first five centuries. Links to the complete original language texts are given (scanned versions of the texts, e.g. from the Migne Patrologia series, at sites like archive.org or Google Books). Links are given to online English translations of these texts, where available, and to information about published translations. Links are also given to the Bible text: the Hebrew, Septuagint Greek, Latin Vulgate and English translation for Hebrew Scripture/Old Testament books, and the Greek, Latin Vulgate and English translation for New Testament books. This makes the website a great place to explore the Scriptures from the perspective of early Christian writers.
