Catena Aurea
Commentary on the Four Gospels
4 Volume Set


?Title: Catena Aurea – Commentary on the Four Gospels: Subtitle: Collected out of the Works of the Fathers [in 4 volumes] Author: St. Thomas Aquinas, Editor: / John Henry [Cardinal] Newman, (exact reprint of original 1842 English ed.) See excerpts in the middle of our book catalog "Catena Corner" The Angelic Doctor’s masterful commentary on the Gospels is now available again in an economical 4-volume hardcover set! Compiling the works of the Early Church Fathers (over 80 are featured!), the Angelic Doctor presents a comprehensive, erudite exegesis of the Scriptural books that specifically recount the life of Our Lord Jesus Christ yet easy to read. The English translation of the original Latin text contained in this set is especially noteworthy as it was edited by JOHN HENRY NEWMAN (1801-1890), who is to be beatified this year. The work of several years, though first published in 1842, this accurate translation has stood the test of time and is still cherished by serious students of the Holy Gospels. In fact Newman co-wrote in one of the Catena’s introductions that while previous ecclesiastical writers had also compiled such Patristic texts, nevertheless "...they [the earlier compositions] are very inferior to the Catena Aurea..." Each volume features original-quality text reprinted on fine, natural-colored paper, sewn-binding, handsomely hardbound in an antique-style khaki rattan Kidskin with red embossing on the covers and spines, and a red marking ribbon. Reproduced from high-resolution films of the originals. Cardinal John Henry Newman's English edition of the Angelic Doctor's commentary on the four Gospels. Compiled from over 80 Early Church Fathers. Comprehensive, erudite, but easy to read. Reprinted in 4 volume set (1842). 2840 pages.
