Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses Ante-Nicene preaching during early Christian period. The only works discussed there from the period are 2 Clement and the first of Origen's homilies on the Song of Songs. The only preachers from the period whose work is considered in their pages are Hermas, Hippolytus, and Origen. Stewart-Sykes contrasts the preaching of Hermas with a Hippolytean homily from roughly a century later to show changes in the Roman churches over that time. Probably the main thing to be learned from this survey of recent literature is how much more research needs to be done. The editors call attention to how much needs to be done in editing the texts of homilies, dating them, and identifying their authors. Scholars must look not only at homilies but other ancient texts that can shed light on transactions between preachers and their audience.

Keywords: 2 Clement; Ante-Nicene preaching; Hermas; Hippolytean homily; Origen
