Commentaries and Homilies in the Early Church

Under the heading of each biblical book is a list of extant patristic commentaries and homilies from the first six centuries of the church. This bibliography attempts to be comprehensive, yet also serve as an accessible resource for a quick summary of the available patristic exegetical and homiletical works.

In each case, the most recent English translation is listed. In the instances where there is no English translation, the most recent translation or edition in any language is listed. Anyone wanting a more detailed bibliography with listings of the critical editions or other translations or editions should consult the bibliographies in the sources listed under each biblical book.
