PREFACE.



The present Volume completes the commentaries of
St. Chrysostom on the shorter Epistles of St. Paul. It con-
sists entirely of Homilies delivered at Constantinople, and
one may perhaps remark some indications of a more matured
and severer character than in earlier works. He refers
several times to his responsibility as presiding in the Church,
and sometimes threatens discipline as in that capacity, and
from this it is that the date of the Homilies is chiefly to be
gathered. The end of Hom. ix. on the Philippians, espe-
cially p. 113. is sufficient for those Homilies. The close of
Hom, iii. on Colossians, pp. 221 — 3. is still more express for
them. Hom. viii. on 1 Thessalonians, p. 425. and Hom. iv.
on 2 Thessalonians, p. 501 — 2. are to the like purpose.

Hom. viii. on 1 Thessalonians, seems also to be that which
is referred to in Hom. iii. on Ep. to Philemon, Tr. p. 361. as it
contains a promise to discuss at some future time the subject
there taken up.

Phil. ii. 6. and Col. i. 15. &c. give rise to doctrinal dis-
cussions. The readiness in argument, which they suppose in
hearers, is greater than one would expect. Hom. v. on
Colossians goes farther into the system of typical interpreta-
tion than is usual with St. Chrysostom; though the system is
in fact acknowledged by him frequently, as in the passage
on marriage, which closes the Homilies on the Colossians,
and which, though scarcely admissible in modern taste, is
one of great value, and of a saintly purity. The close of
Hom. iv. on Colossians is most instructive with regard to the
use of the Historical Books of the Old Testament, and

a 2



iv PREFACE.

Ifoin. ix. poinis out one great use of the Psalms, for moral
impression, and at the same time draws the necessary dis-
tinction between that and the higlier aim of Hymns. In
these Homilies he is particularly severe on luxury and dis-
play, by his attacks on which he is known to have incurred
the displeasure of the Empress Eudoxia, and much persecu-
tion from her.

A passage on the Holy Sacraments at the end of Hom. vi.
on Colossians, one on Prayers for the departed in Hom. iii.
on Philippians, and one in which he urges persons at enmity
to immediate reconciliation, Hom. vi. on 1 Thessalonians, as
well as that in Hom. iii. in Colossians, on imworthiness of
Ministers, and several hints that occur about the order of
Divine service, are well worthy of remark.

Savile's text, with some comparison of others, was used for
the Homilies on the Philippians, and that of the new Paris
Edition, with Savile always at hand, for the rest. Collations
of one Ms. in British Museum, (Burney 48. here marked B.)
were also in hand, but those of Mss. at Venice and Florence
came too late for part of the work. Tlie want of them is not
however very material. The Bodleian Ms. referred to, as
well as the Catena published by Dr. Cramer, contain only
extracts. It is hoped that the Homilies on 2 Cor. will have
the benefit of a well-adjusted text before the Translation is
published, as they are preparing for publication by Mr. Field,
whom the Editor has to thank for information on some par-
ticulars, as well as for the benefit of having his accurate
edition of the Homilies on St. Matthew to refer to.

For the Translation of the Homilies on the Philippians,
the Editors are indebted to the Rev. W. C. Cotton, M.A. of
Ch. Ch. Chaplain to the Bishop of New Zealand; for that of
the Homilies on the Colossians, to the Rev. J. Ash worth, M.A.
Fellow of Brasenose College ; and for the rest of the volume,
to the Rev. James Tweed, M.A. of Corpus Christi College,
Cambridge, the Translator of the Homilies on the Pastoral
Epistles of St. Paul. The Index to the two former is by the



PREFACE. V

Rev. F. Bowles, M.A. of Exeter College, and to the latter by
the Editor, which is noticed in order that the reader may
find the less difficulty from any difference in the heads
under which similar matter may be placed, as the two
were made simultaneously to save time.

A few points on which the Editor was not informed
until the sheets were printed are noticed in the Addenda
and Corrigenda.

For God is my record, lioiv greatly I long after you all in the

may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all

that ye may he sincere and without offence till the day of
Christ; being filled with the fruits of righteousness, ivhich
are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.

And I therein do rejoice, yea, and will rejoice. For I know
that this shall turn to my salvation through your prayer,
and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ, according to
my earnest expectation and my hope, that hi nothing I
shall be ashamed, hut that with all boldness, as always, so
now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it

Yet what I shall choose I wot not. For I am in a strait
betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to he icith
Christ; which is far better: nevertheless, to abide in the
fiesh is more needful for you. And having this confidence
I know that I shall abide and continue with you all for
your furtherance and joy of faith ; that your rejoicing may
be more abundant in Jesus Christ for me, by my coming to
you again.

If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any com-
fort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels
and mercies, fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded,
having the same love, being of one accord, of o)ie mind.
Let nothing he done through strife or vainglory: but in
lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than them-
selves. Look not every man on his own things, but every
man also on the things of others.

man, He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto
death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also
hath highly e.ralted Him, and given Him a Name which
is above every name: that at the Na.ne of Jesus every knee
should bow, of tilings in heaven, and tilings in earth, and
things wider the earth : and that every tongue should
confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the
Father.

Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, ?iot as in
my presence only, but nou- much more in my absence, work
out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For it
is God which icorketh in you both to ivill and to do of His
good pleasure. Do all things without murmurings and
disputings: that ye may be blameless and harmless, the
sons of God, uithout rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and
perverse nation, among ivhom ye shine as lights in the
world; holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice
in the day of Christ.
