Swete: Patristic Study

Swete, Henry Barclay. Patristic Study. New York; Bombay: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1902. (Available for Logos Bible Software.)

Henry Swete's Patristic Study provides a succinct (less than 200 pages) introduction to the major names and works of the patristic era and is full of guidance to the beginning student, recommending starting points and courses of study aimed at particular areas of interest. Obviously, a more recent work will have to be consulted for developments in the field that have occurred since its publication, but it remains a helpful introduction to the age.
