Patristics. The study of Christian writers, specifically the Church Fathers, in the period from the end of New Testament times to Isidore of Seville (d. 636) in the W. and John of Damascus (d. c.749) in the E. The term ‘patrology’, synonymous in older books, now usually refers to a handbook on the patristic literature.
