Priests for Life has compiled
quotes from the various Fathers of the Church and their contemporaries. The
sources were either found in their original Latin and then translations were
located or a translation of the Greek was found. In instances where a
translation could not be found, a private translation was made. This is noted
after each such text. The collection is not complete although it is extensive.
We will continue to develop this section of our website. In this collection,
we have included some pre-Christian texts so as to offer a foretaste of other
sources which we will be providing. The next development will be to locate and
provide the Medieval texts which discuss abortion.
