As usual, life has once again intervened and I have had to let my reading program slide. I am thankful for the dedicated readers we have on our group and how they endeavor to persevere despite my lackadaisical approach to running our list! With the Christmas Holiday's fast approaching, I would like for us to take a well-deserved break in reading and rejoin after the first of the year. In looking over our schedule, I see that we have skipped over Plutarch and are marching right on through Tertullian.
So for those that would like to read over the break, here are some suggested reading links for Tertullian:
Wikipedia article on Tertullian
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tertullian (good general background)
followed by time spent at>
The Tertullian Project
The Noddy Guide to Tertullian
A Popular Modernising Tale
Who read Tertullian in Antiquity
The Renaissance Rediscovery
I have lost my link to the Great Books and am quite distressed. This listing gave me a brief rundown of each writers most famous work. It was indeed handy. Since Tertullian wrote many, many short works, I am simply going to suggest you browse through this section here and choose any that are of interest to you:
http://www.tertullian.org/works.htm (read introduction in English) The links are commentary on each work. You will find a listing of English translations of his works here:
If you decide you would like to read the commentary, please do so. Read as much or as little as you like and after the break, we will discuss anything that touched your heart or stirred your soul.
Have a very Merry Christmas and a blessed Hanukkah!
