Some of the Holy Fathers have written many books, or could speak for hours on end - like we are told abour Saint Paul (cf. Acts). For often a short word is not enough; some explanation is necessary in order to understand it in the right way. But nevertheless, often the short summarizing words are the ones that remain in our memory. And that are kept and handed on from year to year, and from age to age (like, for example, the sayings of the Desert Fathers).

Each of the albums below contains several miniposters with such words. See the bottom panel on the album pages for download in PDF, so you can also use them at home.

With some sayings you will also find a link to a longer text. The collection contains texts in different languages:

NL = Dutch
EL = Greek
EN = English

Sommigen heilige Vaders hebben vele boeken geschreven, of konden urenlang spreken - zoals o.a. verhaald wordt over de heilige Paulus (cf. Hand.). Want vaak is een kort woord niet genoeg; er is ook enige toelichting nodig om het op de juiste wijze te verstaan. Maar vaak zijn het dan toch de korte, samenvattende ‘woorden’ die ons bijblijven. En die van jaar tot jaar, en van eeuw tot eeuw worden bewaard en doorgegeven (zoals bijvoorbeeld de uitspraken van de Woestijnvaders).

Elk van onderstaande albums bevat een aantal miniposters met dergelijke woorden. Zie onderaan de album-pagina’s voor ‘download’ in PDF, om ook thuis te gebruiken.

Bij sommige uitspraken vindt u ook een link naar een langere tekst. De verzameling bevat teksten in verschillende talen:

NL = Nederlands
EL = Grieks
EN = Engels
