Finding Translations of Texts From Patrologia Graeca

Post by Bernd Strauss » January 3rd, 2018, 8:47 am

J. P. Migne's 161-volume Patrologia Graeca has a lot of Greek texts from early Christian writings. When working with some searchable texts from Patrologia Graeca on TLG (Thesaurus Linguae Graecae), I cannot find their English translations in Philip Schaff’s 38-volume series The Ante Nicene Fathers and Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers.

Is there an English series on Church Fathers which is more comprehensive than Schaff’s series?

I suspect Stephen Carlson might know where to find additional translations, he has done some of these.

Here is one set of translations freely available online:

http://www.tertullian.org/fathers/

Here is another set of translations still under copyright:

Fathers of the Church, a new translation by Ludwig Schopp. Strangely, some of these volumes are available on archive.org, but they are presumably still under copyright.

Also, you may be interested in this starting point, which lists additional resources:

Thank you for the information. I had previously visited those links when searching for English translations. Other series available for free appear to be less comprehensive than Schaff’s series. It may be helpful to search for translations of specific works separately.
