Question and Answer (in a page or less)

What does “patristic” mean?

“Patristic” refers to the first centuries in the history of the church. This refers roughly to the period between the completion of the last of the New Testament writings (100) and the Council of Chalcedon (451). This term is also interchangeable in reference to “Early Church Fathers” and “Apostolic Fathers”. A good link for further study is found here.
