The Letters of Saint Ignatius of Antioch
Saint Ignatius was a disciple of the Apostle John, and he learned the Christian Faith directly from the eyewitnesses of Christ. He served as the third bishop of Antioch, from about the year 70 until his martyrdom in 107. He was an important figure in the early Church, participating in the passing of the torch from the apostles to their first successors, the bishops.
Ignatius was sentenced to death for his faith in Christ. On the way to his execution in Rome, he wrote letters to six of the churches of Asia Minor, in which he challenges the Christians to remain faithful to the Savior in a world that hated them, and expressed some of the most beautiful words ever written about the Christian life in Christ. His writings are a valuable witness to the operation and teachings of the first century Church.
This new translation, exclusively available from Legacy Icons, features beautiful illustrations and an epilogue with the contemporary account of Saint Ignatius' martyrdom in the Roman arena.
