Church Fathers

For some time now I’ve had the desire to read the early Church Fathers, particularly those individuals writing up until Christianity’s legalization in the fourth century.  What amazes me is that the only real version of the ante-Nicene fathers available is over 100 years old.  New reprints of it come out from time to time, but nobody (apparently) has taken the time and effort to actually retranslate these documents, updating the language, improving the academic notes, and expanding the set to include writings discovered in the past century.

It amazes me how much crap is published annually under the broad title of Christian writings, yet nobody seems to think that studying the people closest to the time of Christ and the Apostles is worthwhile!
