The project to translate the homilies of Origen and put them online is underway. A scholar wrote to me over the weekend about this, and I have commissioned him to translate all of the Homilies on Ezekiel, which have never received an English translation at all. The Homilies on Numbers have never been translated into English either, but these are three times as long, and I only have the last volume of the SC edition.
The first 5 pages of the first homily have already been done as a sample, and been approved. We’re using the Sources Chrétiennes text as a basis (itself a reprint of the GCS text).
He also sent me a digest of what translations of the homilies already exist, which is very useful and I reproduce here. Any additions and corrections would be welcome!
One of the Numbers homilies is included in the “Classics of Western Spirituality” volume of Origen, and there is a compilation by Tollinton – Selections from the Commentaries and Homilies of Origen (SPCK, 1929); I’m not sure what it has in it.
