Critique de texte et interprétations d'ouvrages de Jean Chrysostome
The following remarks on John’s work concern the text and the interpretation of certain passages which are of interest for different reasons : the tradition may be insecure or faulty or the passage may have been more or less misunderstood. Each one is treated as a unity in itself, but comparison with other texts may give some information on the establishment of the text.There are no general conclusions on the style, grammar or philosophical and theological views of the author. The traditions of the texts are complicated, not to say inextricable. However, it often appears a tendency of some kind, generally to explain and facilitate the text. The discussions start from the comparatively modern editions of the texts, usually published in the series Sources Chrétiennes.
