The Cult of the Saints

   
St John Chrysostom
Select homilies and letters introduced, translated, and annotated by Wendy Mayer with Bronwen Neil

Number 31 of Popular Patristics Series

“The cult of the saints is a phenomenon that expanded rapidly in the fourth century. John’s witness to its growth as seen through the eyes of his homilies is an important one. Yet, the majority of John’s homilies on the saints and martyrs have been ignored in the English translations of his homilies previously available[...]. [...T]he cult of the saints is still very much alive in Roman Catholic and Eastern Christian piety. There are still parts of the world where the cult is observed in ways that differ little from those that were established at its very beginning. In this respect, the homilies that John Chrysostom preached on the feast days of his local saints and martyrs remain fresh and alive for us today.”
