After nearly 30 years of devout protestantism, I began reading the Church Fathers for the first time in 2017. They were some of the earliest Christian leaders: popes, bishops, priests, theologians, apologists, etc. Some of them were even discipled by the Apostles themselves.

What I found blew me away: instead of finding Christians who thought and sounded like me, I found that they sounded quite different—they were Catholic. They taught Catholic doctrine, they engaged in Catholic practices, and they operated according to Catholic assumptions. Studying their writings eventually led to my decision to become Catholic.

Many people have asked me which works of the Church Fathers played a role in my conversion. So I decided to compile a comprehensive list of the Church Fathers who not only helped lead me to my decision to convert, but whose words continue to enlighten my mind and heart, and which constantly confirm my decision to come into full communion with the Catholic Church—the same Church to which they belonged.

I’ve arranged the list by century, then by person. Documents from Popes and Councils will always be found on the lower left of each section. I’ve also included some of the apocryphal documents, because they often continued to reflect a Catholic understanding on many matters (for example, the normative nature of episcopacy and priesthood).

This list will continue to be updated. In the meantime, you can read many of the Church Fathers’ works for free at sites like New Advent and Early Christian Writings. (Updated June 17, 2019)
