Barrys work will be regarded as a major publishing event by students & teachers of Church history. Between the covers of three expertly-organized volumes, Readings in Church History presents—for the first time in the English language—an easy-to-use, ready-reference collection of primary documents & source readings in ecclesiastical history sure to become one of the standard works in the field.

The first volume of Readings in Church History covers the period from Pentecost to the Protestant Revolt. It includes many of the treaties, decrees, addresses, statements, reports, papal bulls, encyclicals, pronouncements, selections from a wide range of social, economic, political, intellectual, theological & mystical writings on which we depend for a good deal of our knowledge of ecclesiastical history from apostolic times to the 16th century.

Barrys enormously useful source book gives the reader what is in effect a synthesis of Church history for this period thru a skillful selection of the primary sources about it. In every case he presents, not short excerpts or snippets, but an ample selection from each source, thus helping the reader to a fuller understanding of a particular topic- Barry also includes many entirely new translations, especially prepared for this volume, of original documents & manuscripts. All of the material is arranged in chronological & topical order, & is placed in its historical setting by informative introductions written by the editor.
