FROM THE LIVES OF
THREE GREAT FATHERS

THIS book contains, in the first place, an enlarged form of addresses on the lives of St. Athanasius, St. Chrysostom, and St. Augustine, which were delivered in the Cathedral at Oxford, on some week-day evenings during an Advent.
It was not then to the purpose, nor has it been now attempted, to produce anything like complete biographies, but rather to dwell on such leading features of life and character as might be found peculiarly interesting and suggestive. A fuller account of the career of Athanasius will be found in the "Introductions" to his "Orations against the Arians," and his "Historical Writings," as reprinted at the Clarendon Press in 1873 and 1881.
