Mark Vermes has completed for us an English translation of Contra ludos et theatra (PG 56, columns 261-270), which I have put in the public domain. I’ll make an HTML version later, but you can get a PDF and a DOCX from Archive.org here: http://archive.org/details/ChrysostomAgainstTheGamesAndTheTheatres As always, you are free to use or distribute this for any [...]

The first chunk of a translation of Chrysostom’s homily on the circuses has arrived, and looks excellent. I’ve paid for it and asked for more! It will, of course, appear online and be placed in the public domain as per normal.
There are a couple of homilies by Chrysostom in the Patrologia Graeca which do not seem to exist in English, and which ought to be interesting. They were delivered after he returned from his first exile, and attempted a reconciliation with his enemy, Severian of Gabala, who had been needlessly alienated by the arrogance of [...]
An email reminded me of this post about Anianus (or Annianus) of Celeda, who flourished ca. 413 AD and translated a number of the works of Chrysostom into Latin, in which form they circulated in the Middle Ages. I’ve been looking for a bit more information about him. An index entry for Anianus at CERL [...]
An email reached me today from a chap volunteering to take on a commission for some Greek and Syriac (and Armenian for that matter, although I have none in mind at the moment). I’ve written back and asked for some details. It might be nice to get him to do a few of the letters [...]
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!

It will be released into the public domain and placed online this evening. There may be a bit of a hiatus with various projects over the summer. I [...]
An email this morning to say that the translation of John Chrysostom’s In Kalendas is now done all the way through and just needs revision. This is excellent news. When it arrives I will post it online.
Portions of this post are written under the UK government legislation controlling criticism of homosexuality. Summer has suddenly arrived, with massive heat and glaring sun. I’ve had to go and lie down with a headache! Not used to the bright light, I’m afraid. I have some interesting emails to deal with, but they’ll have to wait [...]
It looks as if some of the sermons by Chrysostom that I was thinking of getting translated already exist in English. The sermon on his return according to this is said to be included in W. Mayer and P. Allen, John Chrysostom (The Early Church Fathers), London: Routledge, 2000. A look at the table of contents confirms [...]
