    Patrēs Latīnī [...] Ecclēsiae

    What would be the appropriate Latin word translated into English as "early"?

    "Patres" does actually imply "early".

    You would have to differentiate between Patres Ecclesiae and Doctores Ecclesiae. Each of these termini automatically defines the era/the writers you are referring to.

    In the context perhaps patres ecclesiae priores?
