Chrysostom’s sermon on new year (in kalendas) now online in English

The translation that I commissioned of John Chrysostom’s sermon on the new year festivities is now online here.  I hope it will be useful!  It’s public domain – do whatever you like with  it!

    Thanks a lot for this, any new or progress on the one for Christmas?

    Thank you Roger. This is great!

    Glad to help.

    I have no further Chrysostom sermons commissioned. The two Christmas sermons would be good to do, I agree.

    Hi. I think there is not enough patristic literature in modern languages. Yes, there is a lot of material from first 5-6 centuries but there should be translations from other centuries. Byzantine patristics is still very unknown.

    There is more than you might think. But a lot of it is offline, printed in tiny editions and held only in major western reference libraries. So … I do my best with what I have!
