In Kalendas!

I am pleased to follow up Roger Pearse's announcement, and say that my translation of Chrysostom's In Kalendas (On the New Year) is finished, online, and public domain.

It's quite an interesting sermon too, I think. The latter half of it a discussion of how everything can be done 'for God's sake', and Chrysostom examines all manner of activities in this light. This contrasts with his satirical attack of the superstitions of NY practised by the Antiochenes in the first half. A good read all round.
