Description

The Homilies of St. John Chrysostom on the Epistle of St. Paul to the Romans have been characterized as the most theological of his works, and they are here translated into English for the first time in over a century. The prominent patrologist Johannes Quasten rates the Homilies as "by far the most outstanding patristic commentary on this epistle and the finest of all Chrysostom's works." Quasten brings in as an early witness to his favorable judgement a contemporary of Chrysostom, Isidore of Pelusium, who, impressed by Chrysostom's exposition of the epistle, exclaimed, "If the divine Paul wished to expound in the Attic tongue his own writings he would not have spoken otherwise than this famous master; so remarkable is the latter's exposition for its contents, its beauty of form, and propriety of expression."

Translated by Panayiotis Papageorgiou.
