Philostorgius church history by Philostorgius ( )
22 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Philostorgius (born 368 C.E.) was a member of the Eunomian sect of Christianity, a nonconformist faction deeply opposed to the form of Christianity adopted by the Roman government as the official religion of its empire. He wrote his twelve-book Church History, the critical edition of the surviving remnants of which is presented here in English translation, at the beginning of the fifth century as a revisionist history of the church and the empire in the fourth and early-fifth centuries. Sometimes contradicting and often supplementing what is found in other histories of the period, Christian or otherwise, it offers a rare dissenting picture of the Christian world of the time. - Publisher

10 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Written in the fourth century A.D., the Panarion of St. Epiphanius is by far the most extensive ancient account of heresies in the early church and the major source for a considerable number of heterodox documents and traditions. Amidon here makes this important patristic document readily accessible to students and scholars, providing translations of selected passages, including precious documents of Gnosticism and Semi-Arianism excerpted and preserved by Epiphanius and first-hand accounts of his encounters with sects and notable figures of his time
