For my own reference

Irenaeus of Lyons, Against Heretics (4th century A.D.)
Tertullian, various works (including To Martyrs, Concerning Baptism, Against the Jews, Apology, To Scapula, Concerning the Prescription of Heretics, and Against the Valentinians) (3rd century A.D.)
Eusebius of Caesarea, History of the Church (4th century A.D.)
John Chrysostom, Against the Jews (4th century A.D.)
Justin Martyr, Apology (2nd century A.D.)
Athenagoras of Athens, A plea for the Christians (2nd century A.D.)
Josephus, Antiquities of the Jews, The Jewish War (2nd century A.D.)

I'm unsure whether I should read primary sources beyond the 4th century (such as Augustine or John of Damascus), but there are a load of other early Christian writers that I haven't listed that could be required reading. Roman historians such as Tacitus are obviously included in that list as well.

Certainly not going to be running out of reading anytime soon. ;p
