Chrysostom, De terrae motu (on the earthquake) now online in English

Bryson Sewell has kindly translated for us all the short homily by John Chrysostom, De terrae motu (on the earthquake; CPG 4366, PG 50 713-6).

It’s here in HTML form.  I have placed the PDF and Word forms at Archive.org here.

The translation is public domain: use it freely for personal, educational or commercial use.

    Thanks for commissioning and posting the translation.

    There’s a typo in this clause: “so far me it is a famine not to speak.”

    “Far” should instead read “for”.

    Fixed.
