Patristics or Patrology is the study of early Christian writers, known as the Church Fathers. The names derive from the Latin pater (father). The period is generally considered to run from the end of New Testament times (circa 100 CE) to either 451 CE (the date of the Council of Chalcedon), or to the 8th century.
