 Our Description

In a wide variety of ways, the Fathers attest to the fact that the church of Rome was the central and most authoritative church.

They attest to the Church’s reliance on Rome for advice, for mediation of disputes, and for guidance on doctrinal issues.

They note, as Ignatius of Antioch does, that Rome "holds the presidency" among the other churches, and that, as Irenaeus explains, "because of its superior origin, all the churches must agree" with Rome.

They are also clear on the fact that it is communion with Rome and the bishop of Rome that causes one to be in communion with the Catholic Church. This displays a recognition that, as Cyprian of Carthage puts it, Rome is "the principal church, in which sacerdotal unity has its source."

In this tract we will show the early Church Fathers understood that Peter’s successors shared in his special authority or primacy.

We will cover the views of the popes and other Church Fathers up to the year A.D. 341. The views of the Fathers after this period will be covered in the tract, The Authority of the Pope: Part II.
