Patristic Roundup-June 14-21st, 2007

Well, it seems that the coming of sumemr has begun to inspire people to dip into the Fathers again, so this week's roundup has been rather larger than normal with the return of several regulars to patristic postings. I'm sorry for being late with this batch, but I've been marking/doing report cards all week and this is the first I've had the chance to come up for air.
