Product description

The Church Father John Chrysostom died 1600 years ago. Hardly any Christian from Antiquity has done more to form the identity of the most varied church traditions right up to the present day. While Protestants honour him as a preacher (hence the honorific Chrysostomos? Golden-mouthed ), the Orthodox Churches know him as the progenitor of their Sunday liturgy (Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom). The volume provides an insight into the many facets of the history of this figure's influence."

F r die 45 farbigen Abbildungen zur Ikonographie des Johannes Chrysostomus werden die Leserinnen und Leser besonders dankbar sein."Gabriele Ziegler in: Erbe und Auftrag 4.85/2009 "This collection of articles, which includes more than forty illustrations and an index locorum, will be useful not just for students of Chrysostom, but for anyone interested in the emergence and development of patristic tradition."Arnoud Visser in: The Journal of Ecclesiastical History 1-4/2009
