The Apostolic Fathers, translated from the original languages in Bangla, with introductions and explanatory notes.
In addition to Didache, Clement, Ignatius, Policarp, Barnabas, Shepherd, Diognetus, the books contains also the Fragments of Papias and Quadratus, and the Muratori Codex.

The title Apostolic Fathers is given to people who in their lifetime knew the Apostles of Jesus Christ. Hence the importance and soundness of their doctrine lie in the fact that it can be directly linked to the teaching of the Apostles themselves. Through their writings we get a first hand picture of the situation and of the problems of the Church at the turn of the first Century of the Common Era.
