Theophylact, Saint, Archbishop of Ohrid: Commentarii in quatuor Evangelia. Opus nunc primum Graece et Latine editum. Lutetiae Parisiorum [Paris]: Apud Carollum Morellum, 1635. Folio, pp. [x], 848, [xii]. Title page in red and black, with large engraved printer's device. Small paper flaw in centre of one leaf (no loss of text), a little minor spotting elsewhere.

Small modern library card to front pastedown, and stamp on half-title of St. Augustine's Abbey, Ramsgate. The commentaries on the gospels by the 11th-century Theophylact, Archbishop of Ohrid and head of the Bulgarian Church. The Latin translation is that of Philippus Montanus, first published 1564, and the Greek had been first printed in 1542 by Blado, although the title page of this edition declares that the two are here first edited together. Theophylact's work was based on Chrysostom's, but is noted for its clarity and and accuracy; it has only recently been translated into English for the first time.   Ref: 40545
