The Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers is a set of books containing translations of early Christian writings into English. It was published in 1885. Like the Ante-Nicene Fathers series it was produced by pirating earlier translations commissioned and issued in the United Kingdom, often by the Edinburgh firm of T. & T. Clark, but also using material from the Oxford Movement series of the Library of the Fathers.
