The Greek Christian Writers

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Greek Christian Writers ( GCS ) is a series of publications founded by Adolf Harnack and Theodor Mommsen in 1891, which is supposed to bring together the Greek writings of early Christianity in text-critical editions with a complete record of the handwritten tradition. The corpus was initially limited to the Greek Christian writers of the first three centuries , but this time limitation in the title was dropped after 1945. At the side of this corpus, Harnack placed the series of monographs of texts and studies on the history of early Christian literature (TU), founded in 1882 .
