Delivered to catechumens at dawn on Easter Sunday, 388, these lectures reveal St. John at the height of his brilliance. Describing his charges as wrestlers getting ready for combat, as stars brighter than any others in the sky, he exhorts them that as such, they must dazzle those around them by the purity of their conduct. 381 pp.

An Eighth Day View:

This series of eight instructions on baptism were given by St. John Chrysostom, probably at Antioch about 390. Their interest lies in Chrysostom's activity as a mystagogue for the baptismal candidates and as their instructor in Christian doctrine and morality immediately after their initiation.
