In this paper, a class of Volterra fractional partial integro-differential equations (VFPIDEs) with initial conditions is investigated.  Here, the well-known method of lines (MOLs) is developed to solve the VFPIDEs. To this end, the VFPIDE is converted into a system of first-order ordinary differential equations (ODEs) in time variable with initial conditions. Then the resulting ODE system is solved by an LN-stable method, such as Radau IIA or Lobatto IIIC. It is proved that the proposed method is LN-stable. Also, the convergence of the proposed method is proved. Finally, some numerical examples are given to illustrate the efficiency and accuracy of the proposed method.
