Early Church Fathers
The Church Fathers were theologians whose writings explained biblical principles in the early Church. These men had strong communication skills and demonstrated personal holiness despite not all of them having been canonized. Some were clergy but and they were all not infallible. Many of them were followers of the Apostles. They offered explanations on the sacred writings, on how to apply the Scriptures in daily life, and taught the Catholic faith.
The Fathers can be divided into four categories: the Apostolic, the Greek, the Latin, and the Desert.
