A Dictionary of Christian Biography and Literature to the End of the Sixth Century A.D., with an Account of the Principal Sects and Heresies is a 1911 religious encyclopedia of biographies.

Edited by William C. Piercy and Henry Wace, Dean of Canterbury (1836–1924) in English-language version, it is in the public domain as of 2004. The Christian Classics Ethereal Library has scanned the original printed copy.[1] In 1999, Hendrickson Publishers reprinted it under the title A Dictionary of Early Christian Biography.[2]

Its predecessor was A Dictionary of Christian Biography, Literature, Sects and Doctrines (four volumes, 1877–87) edited by Wace and William Smith.[3] That in turn represented an updated version of Smith's Bible Dictionary of 1863.
