Fine and rare edition printed in Paris (1718-1738) of the collected works of Saint John Chrysostom, archibishop and patriarch of Costantinople, probably the finest preacher of every time.
(Chrysostomos, anglicized as Chrysostom) means "golden-mouthed" in Greek and denotes his celebrated eloquence. Chrysostom was among the most prolific authors in the early Christian Church,
The Orthodox and Eastern Catholic Churches honor him as a saint and count him among the Three Holy Hierarchs, together with Basil the Great and Gregory Nazianzus. He is recognized by the Eastern Orthodox Church and the Catholic Church as a saint and as a Doctor of the Church. The Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria also recognizes John Chrysostom as a saint.
John Chrysostom's main works are a massive collection of biblical commentaries (scriptural homilies). His treatise on the priesthood and on divine nature are also well known. . His Adversus Judeus is notorious for articulating the characterization of Jews as "christ-killers" and denouncing "Judaizers", Christians who congregate in synagogues and observe Jewish rituals (like circumcision) and holidays in order to imitate the earlier life of Christ.
The best known of his many homilies, the Paschal Homely (Hieratikon), is rather brief. In the Eastern Orthodox Church it is traditionally read in full each year at the Paschal Devine Liturgy (eucharistic) service following the midnight Orthos (or Matins)
The most complete Greek and Latin edition by Bernard de Montfaucon of the Benedictine order of St. Maur. (thirteen volumes, Paris, 1718–38.
