The high school Higher School of Religious Sciences of the University of Navarra (ISCR) has published Patrología. The volume, written by Juan Antonio Gil Tamayo and José Manuel Fidalgo, professors at School of Theology, is the twenty-fourth book in the ISCR Manuals collection published by EUNSA.

Patrology studies the life, works and doctrine of the Church Fathers. The authors affirm that to receive the heritage of the fathers, to know and study their writings, their life and teachings, constitutes an extraordinary source of cultural, spiritual and apostolic richness for the Christian of the 21st century. And they recall the words of St. John Paul II in his apostolic letter Patres Eccleisae: "The fathers of the Church are truly 'Fathers' because the Church, through the Gospel, received life from them. And they are also her builders, for it was through them that the Church of God was built in her primordial Structures ".

Juan Antonio Gil Tamayo, who died on March 9, a few days after the publication of this book, was a priest, formator at seminar International Bidasoa and professor of Historical Theology at the University of Navarra. In addition to numerous articles in journals, he has published several books on patristic topics, especially on St. Cyprian of Carthage. The Spanish edition of The Creed commented by the Fathers: I Believe in the Church, is ready for publication.
