I am pretty sure this is the full text, if someone could verify for me to be 100% sure, that would be great:

On the Unity of Christ

(The above site also has a ton of other writings from other Church Fathers)

A preview of many of his letters, from Google books:

Letters 1-50

Letters 51-110

I'll check it for you.

Edit: The "On the Unity of Christ" is a translation of St. Cyril's "Oti eis ho Christos". The first page is this and the last page is this this I see that it is a full translation since I checked whether the first and the last parts were translated, and they were. Perhaps they left something out in the middle, but that is highly unlikely. So yes, it is a full translation.

I'll check it for you.

Rather writing pointless tomes for whatever you call in your language the not-high school you attend and playing video games, could you translate all these terrible Pusey texts into English and make them available for nothing online?

You can do it over Christmas break, if you have such things in your Godless homeland, I am confident.

Thanks.

There aren't any Arabic translations from which you could have checked that?

The Greek is nearly easier to understand than whatever language Severian first posted.

I await your work.

All of those texts? That's pretty huge since he participated in the 80-volumes or so Fathers of the Church series. I'm working on a translation of Pseudo-Dionysius' Mystical Theology at the moment, but if you have a specific request I'll see what I can do.

All 80 by this year's celebration of the Nativity (Old Calendar if you are less diligent than I guess).

Well that settles sit. I'm sure every true Egyptian have a copy of "On the Unity of Christ" in Arabic somewhere handy. Like under the pillow when they sleep or something.

There's a modern translation in the Popular Patristics series. It's $16 so that's not too bad.

I really don't get Pusey's deal.

I am a native English speaker (sorta).

I've read "English" literature fron nearly beginning of the language till present.

I read other langauges that require dictionaries and the occassional grammar.

I've read Hegel.

And I've found nothing migraine inducing that those Pusey translations.

It's like just close enough to English and yet different enough that I can't bear it.

Thanks for the link, I know there are more contemporary translations, I just light to complain whenever I can about these translations and give you backhanded insult along the way.

(see: backhanded compliment)
