Oden listed the following as the principal sources of classic Christian exegesis, those who early gained the most general consent throughout the Asian, African and western church traditions as universally esteemed: the eight great doctors of the church – Athanasius, Basil, Gregory Nazianzus and John Chrysostom in the East, and Ambrose, Jerome, Augustine, and Gregory the Great in the West.

These people interest me because I was exposed to them during my Church History lectures but sad to say I have forgotten about most of what I have learnt. So it is now time for revision!
