Bump!

I posted this almost a year ago, and I am still interested in finding information on that topic.

When you say remarriage do you mean only after divorce, or any second marriages? I ask because I'm sure I've read stuff about 2nd marriages in treatises on widows. As for divorce, I don't know. I'll see if I can dig anything up.

Both divorce and other cases. Anything the Fathers wrote, would be great.

See St Gregory Nazianzus' Oration 37, which presents a detailed argument why second and even third marriage should be allowed, pace the tradition in the Latin Church, which allowed for no remarriage even at that time.
