    We would like to bring the Homilies out online, but because it is a hefty volume it will take some help to get it done. There are a few versions already out there but they're largely inaccessible, sourced as they are from Victorian editions and laden with heavy textus-criticus annotations that obscure legibility.

    If every member took on to type up one homily (2 to 4 pages), the whole corpus would be done very quickly, so please consider helping if you can contribute some time to help bring out this classic work.

    Just in curiosity, how much of the Homilies have been transcribed thus far?

    Four people have volunteered so far to transcribe the first five homilies. The work is laborious and more assistance is needed.

    Yes there is. Footstoolpublications reproduces a Victorian edition with all of its concomitant alterations to the text and layout.
    Compare the original and the Footstool version.
