This book contains a medieval Greek commentary on these gospels, made up entirely of chunks quoted from older authors, and starting with the author name. An index at the back allows you to find bits by each other.
It is a great shame that this is not available in English. The materials in here are often from now lost texts.
Cramer's catena is regularly referred to or quoted from in studies of the Greek fathers. It is an unbelieveable blessing to have it online here.
How much of a blessing I found myself, when I tried to obtain photocopies of a few pages from this when I was in Oxford, and the Bodleian tried to charge me the earth for these. I wish that I had known that the book was here...!!!
More 'catenae' please! They're all in old publications, all out of copyright, and all very hard to get copies from.
