Marriage and Virginity according to St. John Chrysostom

Archpriest Josiah B. Trenham

“What theology was it that undergirded the practical counsels of Chrysostom? It is the aim of this book to answer that question with regard St. John’s teaching on marriage and virginity. We will see that a single grand and consistent conception of the Christian calling inspired Chrysostom throughout his ministry, and provided his rudder in delivering his priestly teaching and pastoral counsel to married and monastic alike. In propounding this calling, Chrysostom relied on the labors of the Fathers who had gone before him[...]. [...]If this book assists faithful Christians, who perhaps know Chrysostom from various of his teachings and sayings, to understand the larger theological worldview of the Saint, which unifies and gives context to his particular counsels, it will have been a worthy labor.”
