Abbreviations

Methods for abbreviating Chrysostom’s works when citing them in scholarly articles and in footnotes varies widely. The abbreviations created by SBL are too concise and in the case of some miscellaneous homilies create a third way of labelling a homily that is meaningful for Biblical scholars, but obscure to scholars of Patristics or Late Antiquity. The following is posted to help scholars move towards a standard set of abbreviations for the citation of Chrysostom’s genuine works. The initial letter of the abbreviation can be capitalised or in lower case according to the publisher’s requirements or individual preference.
