1. Patristics: is the specialist area concernced with the lives and works of "bishops and teachers during the 3rd Century A.D. The term "Father" was first used to describe a teacher or loyalty to someone of some belief.
2. The significance of the Apostolic Fathers was that they focused on the gospels and became keepers of the word. They also seem to give a sense of historical credibility to the new testament.
3. Yes, the written letters by the Apostolic Fathers gave clarity to the new Testament.
