Hymns of the Apostolic Church

by John Brownlie


The beloved Scottish pastor John Brownlie received an honorary doctoral degree from Glasgow University for his brilliant work in hymnology. Skilled with the Greek language, he took it upon himself to translate some of the hymns of the early church Fathers—the inheritance of every Christian. In Hymns of the Apostolic Church, Brownlie gifts the church with poetic translations of ancient and medieval hymns, his English renderings rivaling the beauty of the original Greek. Among others, he translated the works of venerated saints, such as Clement of Alexandria and Gregory of Nazianzus.
