1872. With a portrait. A sketch of the Church and the Empire in the Fourth Century. This volume contains Stephens's history of the most famous of the Greek Fathers for whom the title Chrysostom (in Russian, Zlatoust), or golden-mouthed was reserved, John of Antioch, known as St. John Chrysostom, a great distinction in view of the qualifications of so many others. The voluminous works of Chrysostom fall into three groups. To the days of his early desert life is probably to be assigned the treatise On Priesthood, a book full of wise counsel. To the years of his presbyterate and episcopate belong the great mass of homilies and commentaries, among which those On the Statues, and on Matthew, Romans and Corinthians, stand out preeminently. His letters belong to the last years, the time of exile, and with his other works are valuable sources for the history of his time. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
