Description

This is a 3 volume set

Volume One: The Church and the World in which the Church was Founded

Msgr. Philip Hughes – PB – 344 pages

The temptation of the Church historian is to begin at the beginning and then go steadily on, the second century following the first and the third the second etc. It is a temptation that Msgr. Hughes has resisted. He has seen a better principle. The Church was born into the world, and the first phase of her history is in that world, the world that was already there. But gradually she remade that world and the second, quite different, phase of her history was in the world she had made. He divides the first two volumes accordingly. But this meant that he could not take one fixed date as the dividing line for the whole of the territory in which she worked, for the Eastern world remained very much as she found it up until the time of Justinian I, whereas the Western world had begun to respond to her re-creative activity by the time of Constantine.

The first volume, then, treats the Church in the West up to the conversion of Constantine (312) but in the East up to Justinian I—or rather a century and a half beyond to allow for the consummation of the disunion that followed Chalcedon.

Volume Two: The Church and the World the Church Created

Msgr. Philip Hughes – PB – 500 pages

Msgr. Philip Hughes – PB 556 pages
