PREFACE.

THE present Volume completes the set of St. Chrysostom's Commentaries on the Epistles of St. Paul, with the exception of that to the Hebrews, the Translation of which is preparing for the press. The edition of the original by MR. FIELD has afforded the advantage of an improved text, in fact of one as good as we can hope to see constructed from existing Mss.

These Homilies were delivered at Antioch in the opinion of the Benedictine Editors, though Savile doubted it. The question depends on the interpretation of a passage near the end of Hom. xxvi. in which St. Chrysostom speaks of Constantinople, and presently says 'here.' This, it has been rightly argued, he might say in the sense of 'in the place I am speaking of,' while he was not likely to say 'in Constantinople,' if he were speaking there.

For the Translation the Editors are indebted to the Rev. J. ASHWORTH, M.A. of Brasenose College. It has been carried through the press, and supplied with an Index, by the Rev. J. F. CHRISTIE, M.A. late Fellow of Oriel College, and Rector of Ufton Nervet, near Reading.
