A little project
I’m working on a list of works by Fathers of the Church, a reading plan for myself and whoever else wants to use it.

The general theme is:
A chronological once-through of the most important theological works by the most important Fathers of the Church.

I am open to suggestions. I’m looking for the most theologically important works, having to do with the most basic dogmas and doctrines. For example, God’s existence, His unity, the Trinity, Christology, Soteriology, the Church, and so on.

Ideally, I’m looking for works no longer than the Confessions of S Augustine. Any format is fine – treatise, epistle, poem, commentary, etc. If only longer works are available, or the longer works are the most important, I’d like to get suggestions for the most relevant *portions* of those works – chapters, books, etc.

The works should be available online and not behind a paywall. A link to where the work can be found online would be appreciated.

Once I get this finished, I’d like to compile another list for a second chronological run-through of the Fathers.
