Default William Whiston and Primitive Christianity Revived (and other works)?

Does anyone know where to find William Whiston's books? Primitive Christianity Revived (supposed to have 5 volumes) is the one I am interested in most, but the other books seem interesting also. A quick Google search on 'Primitive Christianity Revived' wasn't very helpful.

William Whiston himself valued the Apostolic Constitutions (Click Here and scroll down to 'Constitutions of the Holy Apostles').

Thanks for the links!

I noticed this sentence in the introduction to the online text of Eunomius' First Apology:
Quote:
William WHISTON, M.A., Primitive Christianity Reviv'd i-iv (London: Printed for the Author; And are to be Sold by the Booksellers of London and Westminster. 1711), i, pp. 1-30; iv, appendix pp. 50-3. Checked.
Does this mean I have to go to London (or Westminster) to get this work? That would be a bummer. It says 'are to be sold'... So it's not sold yet? Or was not sold?

Also, this one definitely goes to my list of books that I have to find some day:
Quote:
Richard Paul VAGGIONE, Eunomius: the extant works. Oxford Early Christian Texts, Oxford (1987).

Bingo!

Google has added books into the internet, and guess what? There are some of William Whiston's works!

Primitive Christianity Reviv'd, Vol I.

The Memoirs of the Life and Writings of William Whiston which contains a LOT of liturgical material. Probably everything you could ever need.

Primitive Christianity Reviv'd, Vol V.

I haven't found Vol II, III, and IV.

If you are interested in the history of English Arian Christianity, or Arianism at all, then these books are a must.

Welcome to the forums!

I'm not sure about the answer, but if you need something easier for the eyes, then I guess this is the best:
http://www.archive.org/details/primitivechristi01whis
http://www.archive.org/details/primitivechristi02whis
http://www.archive.org/details/primitivechristi03whis
http://www.archive.org/details/primitivechristi04whis

Much better than what Google has anyway. Just click "Read Online", or if you want it on the computer, then maybe the PDF file.

You mean printing those pages? I haven't tried. Otherwise it works fine for me.

All of those books are hundreds of pages long though, so you have to be sure of what exactly you want to print. For printing, there's also the "full text" link on the left, but the text in it is not very clean - you would have to do some editing. Otherwise the PDF file, and then you should be careful to put exactly the pages that you want.

I suggest buying the books if you want paper versions.
