Fathers

This is very roughly based on thinking about the early evolution of Christianity, not the very early years of persecution, but the great meetings that defined doctrine.

FATHERS

A congress of the faithful ruled

That heresy, this solid right

The darkness was defined and named

They drew the boundaries of light

But in the dark a light still shone

And in the land of constant light

The forests shrivelled, streams ran dry

Until the coming of the night.
