Three Homilies on the Devil by St. John Chrysostom (c. 349 - c. 407). Translated by Philip Schaff (1819 - 1893)

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/three-homilies-on-the-devil-by-st-john-chrysostom/
John Chrysostom, Archbishop of Constantinople, delivered these three homilies, most likely at Antioch, about the role (or lack thereof) of demons in our life. The summary for each one follows: 1) Against those who say that demons govern human affairs, and who are displeased at the chastisement of God, and are offended at the prosperity of the wicked and the hardships of the just. 2) Against those who object because the devil has not been put out of the world: and to prove that his wickedness does no harm to us—if we take heed: and concerning repentance. 3) That evil comes of sloth, and virtue from diligence, and that neither wicked men, nor the devil himself, are able to do the wary man any harm. The proof of this from many passages, and amongst others from those which relate to Adam and to Job. (Philip Schaff)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://ccel.org/ccel/schaff/npnf109/npnf109.x.i.html
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

The text is also available here:

https://archive.org/details/OnThePriesthood.AsceticTreatises.SelectHomiliesAndLetters.HomiliesOn/page/n279/mode/2up

but I prefer reading from the ccel page. However I don't mind switching it.

This is set up.

I prefer the CCEL text as well - that Archive one isn't a scan of an original printed book, and they slap some different kind of CC license on it anyway. ;)

Weird, OK CCEL it is.

Anyway thanks for setting this up. I'll get to work on this devilish classic... soon.

Homily I is finished. I tried to make it a little more engaging, but somehow it came out a little strange. Homilies II & III I'll try use a more even tone.

This is fine, and marked PL OK.

I didn't follow the text as closely in this project, but applying standard PL criteria. So, there may be minor deviations from the text, but nothing that jumps out. I think you are doing a good job or reading and editing.

I may get to the other sections later tonight or tomorrow.
I'll do my best.

And, the final two are also PL OK.
So this one is done, and I'll work on the PL for your older project now.
