Baptismal Instructions

   
St. John Chrysostom
Translated and Annotated by Paul W. Harkins

No. 31 of Ancient Christian Writers: The Works of the Fathers in Translation

“Baptism, its symbolism, and its place in the economy of redemption have always been a a matter of extreme interest to theologians, liturgists, and all members of Christ’s Body. No part of the Church Militant can remain indifferent to any knowledge, new or old, of the sacrament of regeneration; when some new knowledge emerges from the obscurity of nearly sixteen centuries, the entire Church must leap for joy. The recent discovery of a MS. in a monastery on Mount Athos in Greece gives occasion for such joy because, among other things, this MS. contains a complete series of eight instructions on baptism given by St. John Chrysostom, probably at Antioch, about 390 A.D.”
