Leo on Librivox

Leo the Great was unanimously elected Bishop of Rome on September 29, 440 a.d. At the Council of Chalcedon, his famous "Tome" was a decisive contribution to the Christological controversies of the fifth century. But the Tome did not stand alone. It was written in the context of over two decades of pastoral sensitivity. This collection of sermons is the best way to let Leo himself unpack the nuances and power of Chalcedonian Christology according to one of its most influential proponents.

This collection of 48 sermons are brief (3-15 minutes each) but packed with punch. Simple, down to earth pastoral advice based on profound insights into the nature of God. Throughout, Leo operates with a view of the Church which is both representative of the entire early Church but virtually unknown to moderns.

Enjoy it on Librivox
