John Chrysostom, Homilies on Titus and Philemon
Pauline Allen
Publication Date
July 2024


In her latest volume on John Chrysostom, Pauline Allen translates into English nine homilies on two of Paul’s letters. Included in this collection are six homilies on Titus that deal with Chrysostom’s attitudes toward episcopal accountability. Three homilies on Philemon shed light on Chrysostom’s views on the treatment of slaves. A thorough introduction that addresses the date, provenance, and content of these homilies makes this volume an essential source for scholars and students interested in the development of the church in the fourth to fifth centuries CE.

Pauline Allen is Professor Emerita of the Australian Catholic University and Honorary Research Fellow of the University of Pretoria, South Africa. She is the Alexander von Humboldt Fellow, a Fellow of the Australian Academy of the Humanities, Research Associate at the University of Pretoria, and Fellow of the British Academy. Her contributions to the SBL Press series Writings from the Greco-Roman World include John Chrysostom, Homilies on Philippians (2013).
