Other Modern Translations: German and French (see Centre for Early Christian Studies)
Notes: The PG substitutes a portion of the text which does not properly belong to this homily and is missing the conclusion of the homily. Wenger’s lacuna provides the missing portions of the text. Mayer’s translation uses the fully revised text and provides the homily in its entirety.
