ON MARRIAGE AND FAMILY LIFE

Author: ST. JOHN CHRYSOSTOM TRANSLATED BY CATHARINE ROTH AND DAVID ANDERSON #: 10234
Christian tradition often seems to give only grudging approval to the married life, particularly its sexual aspect. In these sermons of St John Chrysostom we find an important corrective to this view. Although himself a monk, Chrysostom had a profound understanding of the needs of his congregation. Inspired by the epistles to the Corinthians and Ephesians, he discusses their reasons God instituted marriage — primary to promote holiness of the husband and wife, and only secondarily to produce children.

ON THE HOLY SPIRIT

Author: ST. BASIL THE GREAT TRANSLATED BY DAVID ANDERSON #: 10245
St Basil the Great wrote his treatise On the Holy Spirit during the closing phase of the Trinitarian controversies of the fourth century. The Arians had previously denied the full divinity of the Son and the debate then turned to the Holy Spirit. In this work, without explicitly calling the Spirit “God,”, St Basil demonstrates that He, like the Son, is of one and the same nature with the Father, and that equal honor and worship therefore are due Him.
