40 editions published between 1844 and 2013 in English and English, Old and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The writings of Ælfric of Eynsham (c.950-c.1010) are among the most important to survive from Anglo-Saxon England. He was shaped by tenth-century monastic reform, and his promotion of Old English was highly influential. His earliest known works, the Sermones Catholici (c.990-5), are adaptations of Latin texts rendered in Old English. The homilies draw on the gospels, saints' lives and other doctrinal themes. They were intended to be delivered over two years. This two-volume collection, first published between 1844 and 1846, contains transcriptions of the Old English texts with facing-page translations by Benjamin Thorpe (1781/2-1870). A well-respected scholar with a strong interest in promoting the study of Old English, Thorpe produced an important edition of the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle for the Rolls Series (also reissued in this series). Volume 2 of the present work contains the sermons for the second year, focusing on doctrine and church history

A subsequent volume, in preparation, will provide commentary and glossary for this text as well as for the Second Series, published in 1979
Aelfric's Catholic homilies : introduction, commentary, and glossary by Aelfric( Book )

6 editions published in 2000 in 3 languages and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the third and final volume of the Society's edition of the Catholic Homilies, a set of preaching texts in two series composed in Old English around A.D. 990 for the use of preachers throughout England. Aelfric (monk of Winchester, and then Cerne Abbas and the first abbot of Eynsham) was one of the leading scholars of his time and the foremost prose stylist of the Anglo-Saxon period. The two series of Catholic Homilies together make up the longest extant text in Old English, and are Aelfric's most important work. The text of the Second Series, edited by M.R. Godden, was published in 1979 (S.S. 5), and the text of the First Series, edited by Peter Clemoes, in 1997 (S.S. 17); both volumes included an analysis of the manuscripts of each series and a detailed account of the textual history. This final volume gives an account of the origin, function and dating of the Catholic Homilies and their Latin sources; a detailed commentary on all eighty homilies; and a glossary of all words occuring in the text."--Jacket
