Resourcing the Study of Early Church History Since 2001

Theology on the Web helps over 2.5 million people every year to find high quality theological resources that will help to equip them to serve God and to know Him better (2 Timothy 2:15). Like other websites that provide free services, it is dependent on donations to enable it to grow and develop and only 0.004% of visitors currently do so. If you would like to support this site, please use one of the options to the right of this message.


To make high quality theological material available throughout the world, thus providing Bible teachers and pastors with the resources they need to spread the Gospel in their countries. This is achieved by:

  • Digitising and uploading in co-operation with authors and publishers, rare and out-of-print theology books and articles. Over 50,000 articles are now available for free download.
  • Providing detailed bibliographies for Seminary level students and ministers.
  • Providing a single cross-linked resource made up of seven websites collectively known as "Theology on the Web". Click here to read more. You should also be aware of the disclaimer here.

There is no charge for using the material on this website. However, if you are able to do so, please consider supporting its work and so enable new resources to be added more quickly. Click here to find out how.

These images are taken from photographs that I bought from the University of Michigan or scanned from material that is no longer copyright. If you would like to use them, I would ask that you do two things:

  1. Remember to credit the University of Michigan if you use any of their images (you can find the source by moving your mouse over the thumbnail images).
  2. If you have access to any old books or other sources of out-of-copyright images of church fathers please consider sending them to me, so that I can make them available to everyone.
