Following the recent publication of his thoroughly revised translations in The Apostolic Fathers in English, 3rd ed., Michael Holmes, a leading expert on these texts, offers a thoroughly revised and redesigned bilingual edition, featuring Greek (or Latin) and English on facing pages. Introductions and bibliographies are generous and up to date. In the textual apparatus, existing notes have been revised and expanded, and well over two hundred new notes have been added. This handsome and handy one-volume, thin-paper edition, with a ribbon marker and reader-friendly page layout is a great addition to your library.

A leading scholar of the Apostolic Fathers, he is writing a major critical commentary on Polycarp's Letter to the Philippians and The Martyrdom of Polycarp, and (with David de Silva) a substantial introduction to the Apostolic Fathers (forthcoming from Baker Academic).
