The Sacred Writings of St. Ignatius

The Sacred Writings of St. Ignatius

More than one of the earliest ecclesiastical writers have given credence, though apparently without good reason, to the legend that Ignatius was the child whom the Savior took up in His arms, as described in Mark 9:35. It is also believed, and with great probability, that, with his friend Polycarp, he was among the auditors of the Apostle St. John. Among others this volume features The Epistle of Ignatius to the Ephesians, The Epistle of Ignatius to the Magnesians, The Epistle of Ignatius to the Trallians, The Epistle of Ignatius to the Romans ,The Epistle of Ignatius to the Philadelphians, The Epistle of Ignatius to the Smyrnaeans, The Epistle of Ignatius to Polycarp and many writings more.

Short biography of St. Ignatius (from wikipedia)

Ignatius of Antioch (ancient Greek: Ἰγνάτιος Ἀντιοχείας, Ignátios Antiokheías) (c. 35  – c. 107), also known as Ignatius Theophorus (Ιγνάτιος ὁ Θεοφόρος, Ignátios ho Theophóros, lit. „the God-bearing“), Ignatius Nurono (lit. „The fire-bearer“) was an early Christian writer and bishop of Antioch. En route to Rome, where he met his martyrdom, Ignatius wrote a series of letters. This correspondence now forms a central part of the later collection known as the Apostolic Fathers. His letters also serve as an example of early Christian theology. Important topics they address include ecclesiology, the sacraments, and the role of bishops. In speaking of the authority of the church, he was the first to use the phrase „catholic church“ in writing, which is still in use to this day.
