Critical Editions of the Works of the Latin Church Fathers

Using current philological methods and editorial techniques, members of the commission, collaborators and scholars from various countries have been producing editions of the writings of Christian Latin authors covering the period from late antiquity to the early Middle Ages, i. e. from the late second century to the death of the Venerable Bede in 735.
These editions are based on as many relevant manuscripts as possible and each manuscript tradition has been carefully emended. The volumes published thus far contain more than one third of all the writings that need to be taken into consideration. At present the commission concentrates on editing works of St. Augustine, St. Ambrose, St. Jerome and monastic rules. The list of projects gives an overview of the volumes which are in the process of completion. Editions in preparation can be found at Projects. Since 2012 our books have been published by De Gruyter, Berlin. Earlier volumes: Verlag der Österreichischen Akademie der Wissenschaften.
