Written about 405 at the request of a friend who was also a catechist, this treatise is both a manual for catechists (the first part of the book), and an example of two sample catechisms, a longer and a shorter (the second part). Here is indispensable material for those looking for witnesses to the Church's classic structures of instruction and initiation -- and the psychological insight into the attitudes of both catechist and catechumen is astoundingly acute.
An Eighth Day View:
A monumental project which brings the English-speaking work key selections from the remarkable literature of early Christianity -- vertiable trasures of Christian faith and theology in superb translations.
