In this video, I discuss the writings of the Apostolic Fathers and share some short quotes from some of those writings. Discussed in this video are the Didache, the Epistle of Barnabas, and 1 Clement.

 

 

 Discussed in this video are the seven letters of St. Ignatius of Antioch, the letter of St. Polycarp of Smyrna, the "Exposition of the Oracles of the Lord" by St. Papias of Hierapolis, and the "Shepherd" by St. Hermas.
