This work provides in English translation what survives of commentary upon the Epistle of Jude from the first millennium of the Christian church. Five texts feature: the relevant portion of Clement of Alexandria’s Hypotyposes, and the commentaries of Didymus (the Blind) of Alexandria, Pseudo-Oecumenius, and the Venerable Bede. With these is included the scholia, extracts from other no longer extant works, published by Dean Cramer in his catena of the Greek Fathers on Jude. Each translated text is provided with notes, and the whole is prefaced by two chapters which place these commentators in their historical context and compare their handling of the material.
