About the Author
Henry Wace (1836-1924), former Dean of Canterbury and noted turn-of-the century scholar, author, and editor, is especially known for his work on the four-volume Dictionary of Christian Biography and with Philip Schaff on the fourteen-volume Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers, Second Series.

The series is by no means complete, neither for Augustine nor Chrysostom, and much less for other significant church fathers such as Gregory of Nazianzus, Basil the Great, Jerome or Cyril of Alexandria among others. Still, the price alone makes this series worth having, though it needs to be supplemented by works found in other patristic series such as The Fathers of the Church series produced by Catholic University of America Press, and the more recent and much more readable translations of St. Augustine produced by New City Press.
Please know these volumes are available on CD ROM and individually through Kindle.
This 14-volume set is excellent in providing a substantial amount of theological and spiritual prose. However, the commentaries by some of the books' editors seem to have an anti-Roman Catholic edge to them. (Especially the comments by Paul Schaff when referring to the "Popery and Romanism" of the Roman Catholic Church.) This I believe is in bad taste....even for an Anglican "scholar."
