Charlie Johnson wrote:Thanks, all. James, I haven't decided where to start. I've dabbled with it before. I've read the Didache and some in the Apostolic Fathers. This Fall I'm starting as a research assistant in Villanova University's Augustinian Institute, so I'll be spending plenty of time in Latin. To complement my studies on Augustine, I'm thinking of reading texts on the Trinity by Athanasius and the Cappadocians. I thought they might be more Atticizing, which prompted my question. Also, many of the sermons may include a lot of rhetorical devices, which I have never learned.

Rod Whitacre's Patristic Greek Reader (published by Hendrickson, now with Baker Academic [disclaimer (or would it be "claimer"): I work for Baker] gives an excellent set of selections with notes to help you through them. Or you could start with the Apostolic Fathers.
