Titles in this 14-volume series are:

The Church in Rome in the First Century, by George Edmundson

Eight lectures (Bampton Lectures, 1913) on the subject, by an Anglican cleric/scholar who takes a more positive view of the tradition(s) regarding Peter and the founding of the Church in Rome than most critical scholars at the time (and since). [general academic, with fairly extensive footnotes], [c.1913]

History of Dogma, by Adolf von Harnack

Harnack's influential Dogmengeschichte (History of Dogma, 6 vol. English ed.), a landmark work that is still regularly consulted and cited by historians and theologians. Harnack was almost universally regarded as the leading expert on early Church History and Doctrine, especially for the ante-Nicene period. His ground-breaking work helped establish more serious critical study of the early Christianity and the Fathers. [Scholarly, with extensive documentation], [1894 Engl. Ed., transl. from the German]

Mission and Expansion of Christianity in the First Three Centuries, by Adolf von Harnack   

This work on early Christian history is somewhat more approachable and easier to follow than Harnack's great work on Dogma, though it still is quite scholarly, especially in the footnotes. It focuses on the social, intellectual and ethical contours of the early church, largely in regard to the Greco-Roman cultural environment [Scholarly, with extensive documentation], [c. 1902; 1908 Engl. Ed., transl. from the German]

What Is Christianity?, by Adolf von Harnack

A series of lectures given extempore at the University of Berlin, Winter 1899-1900, covering the history and development of doctrine, as well as the social and intellectual structure of Christianity. The bulk of the lectures focus on the Apostolic and Early Church period, but the last few extend in to the Medieval and Reformation periods. Before plunging into the author's History of Dogma. These lectures provide a good introduction to the framework and approach used in analyzing and organizing the material used in von Harnack's History of Dogma volumes. [General academic, minimal documentation], [1900; 1908 Engl. Ed., transl. from the German]

Two Lectures: On Monasticism and the Confessions of Augustine, by Adolf von Harnack

Two short works - lectures, or treatises, less academic in approach than many of Harnack's more famous works. His treatment of 'Monasticism: It's Ideals and History' provides a useful survey; of course, coming out of the rational Protestantanism of the 18th & 19th centuries, he has little sympathy for the ascetic ideals of monasticism, but his objective knowledge of the material is sound. The Augustine lecture, much shorter and is a helpful introduction or supplement to the reading of Augustine and his famous autobiography. [General academic, minimal documentation], [c. 1900; 1911 Engl. Ed., transl. from the German]

On the Apostles' Creed, by Adolf von Harnack

This is an article on the Apostles' Creed (from Herzog's Realencyclop
