Fathers of the Church Patristic Series

This large series, currently at 147 volumes, has been published by The Catholic University of America Press starting in 1947 and continuing until present. It contins English translations of the writings of writers from the late first/early second century up to the middle ages. The volumes containing writings of pre-Nicene writers are listed below.

If you have online access to collections of a large library, you may be able to access them for free there as some libraries have subscriptions to the “Project Muse.”
