    Doctors of the Church: What, Who, and Why

    You may have noticed back in January that we were promoting the works of St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Basil of Caesarea, St. Gregory Nazianzus, St. Hilary of Poitiers, and St. Francis de Sales.  You may have noticed further that each of these great saints had feast days in January.  Bonus points for those in the audience that also realized that each of these saints is also designated as a “Doctor of the Church.” We’ll be talking a lot about the Doctors of the Church this year.

    What is a “Doctor of the Church?”

    The Catholic Church recognizes 36 exemplary saints from throughout the history of the church as doctors, which in Latin means teacher. The Doctors are designated as such for their extraordinary teaching on some aspect of ecclesial life, including, preaching, prayer, holiness, but above all in the way in which they shared their faith and way of life with the Church.

    Who are the Doctors of the Church?

    The following list of the 36 doctors is ordered according to their appearance on the liturgical calendar.

    Saint Feast Date
    Hilary of Poitiers  1/13
    Basil of Caesera  1/02
    Gregory Nazianzus  1/02

    Isidore of Seville  4/04
    Anselm of Canterbury  4/21
    Catherine of Siena  4/29
    Athanasius of Alexandria  5/02
    Bede the Venerable  5/25
    John of Avila  5/10
    Ephrem the Syrian  6/09

    Ambrose of Milan 12/7
    John Damascene 12/4
    John of the Cross 12/14
    Peter Canisius 12/21

    Why the Doctors of the Church?

    The Church has chosen to recognize these great saints for our edification and so we can learn from their teaching. For similar reasons, we are choosing to focus our attention here at Verbum in 2018 on the Doctors of the Church because if there are any resources you should have in your library outside of the Bible and the Catechism—it is the works of these great saints. Whether it is research, everyday study, or daily devotions, we want you to get to know them (and so does the Church).

    So, in January, if you missed our doctors, then we have extended the sale on their resources through February 28th.

    Each month throughout 2018 we will be featuring each doctor who has a feast for that month. We will be selecting resources written by or about them for you to add to your Verbum library. So stay tuned and don’t miss this opportunity to build your library with the best the Church has to offer.

    Over 60% off the Hermeneia Commentary Series (50 vols.)

    The Hermeneia Commentary Series (50 Vols.) is currently $800 off. Take advantage of this sale before it ends December 27!

    The Hermeneia series is designed to be a critical and historical commentary to the Bible without arbitrary limits in size or scope. It will utilize the full range of philological and historical tools, including textual criticism (often slighted in modern commentaries), the methods of the history of tradition (including genre and prosodic analysis), and the history of religion. Great for the serious student of the Bible, it will make full use of ancient Semitic and classical languages; at the same time, English translations of all comparative materials—Greek, Latin, Canaanite, or Akkadian—will be supplied alongside the citation of the source in its original language. Insofar as possible, the aim is to provide the student or scholar with full critical discussion of each problem of interpretation and with the primary data upon which the discussion is based.

    The editors of Hermeneia impose no systematic-theological perspective upon the series (directly, or indirectly by selection of authors). It is expected that authors will struggle to lay bare the ancient meaning of a biblical work or pericope. In this way the text’s human relevance should become transparent, as is always the case in competent historical discourse. However, the series eschews for itself homiletical translation of the Bible.

    Save $800 before the sale ends December 27!
