ON ETHIOPIC HOMILIES ATTRIBUTED TO ST JOHN CHRYSOSTOM [Abstract ID: 0808-13]
It has long been known that many texts attributed to St John Chrysostom are inauthentic or at least their authorship is doubtful (see dubia et spuria in the Clavis Patrum Graecorum). This may apply both to the Greek texts and to their oriental translations or adaptations. It is also true for a large Pseudo-Chrysostomic dossier we have in the classical Ethiopian language. Many such texts have been already published. Some are still waiting for their edition. Others require a scientific re-editing and study. In this paper, one of the homilies included in an ancient collection of homilies for the main feasts of the Lord will be discussed, specifically the homily on Wedding at Cana in Galilee, which is quite an interesting case from the editorial, literary and doctrinal point of view.
