We are quite pleased to release the fourth issue of Fides et Humilitas (FidHum). Our vision for the journal is to offer a venue for students and scholars to publish articles, conference proceedings, and related book reviews in the broad field of early Christianity (Ancient Judaism, New Testament and Early Christianity, and Patristic Studies).

In this issue, we have a broad contribution of articles and book reviews. Additionally, this issue contains a cogitatio on Ignatius of Antioch.
