Henry Chadwick, RIP

“Nothing is sadder than someone who has lost his memory,” Chadwick said in a debate at the the Church of England’s General Synod in 1988, “and the Church which has lost its memory is in the same state of senility.”

The Early Church for Pelican/Penguin Books is easily one of the best summations of patristic history. I have not yet read his East and West: the Making of a Rift in the Church.

He also bore the title "Very Reverend."

Here's his obituary. RIP.
