IÂ love the Greek church fathers (haven’t started reading the Latin fathers in Latin yet). I’m glad that I’m not the only one.
Dave Black admits that he’s been reading Polycarp’s epistle to the Philippians. The evidence is here on his blog (Friday, December 4, 2009 at 5:10 pm).
By the way, if you haven’t read Polycarp’s letter, you should. Here’s an online English translation. And here’s an only version of the Greek text of Polycarp’s letter.
The pic of Polycarp’s letter on Dave’s blog just happens to be of my favorite section of the letter. I wrote about it in my post called “Polycarp to Presbyters.”
