This volume of essays honours Henry Chadwick, probably the greatest and best-known of English scholars of early Christianity. The essays discuss different aspects of how Christianity developed norms and standards in its teaching, how it came to have - and to enforce - a definition of orthodoxy and heresy.

All of the essays are coherent and insightful. Really worth the read! My only sorrow is that Jaroslav Pelikan doesn't have an essay in the book. He must have been too busy writing for one of the two-dozen or so collections that he was involved with at the time!
