Here is the second iteration in the Catenae Catenae Graecorum of 1 Thessalonians. Today’s text is rather simple, as it is the table of contents for the book. Enjoy:

α´. Ἔπαινος θεσσαλονικέων ἐπὶ τοῖς ἀξίοις τῶν Ἀποστόλων ἀγῶσιν.
β´. Πόθος αὐτῶν καὶ χαρὰ ἐν αὐτοῖς καὶ μέριμνα, ὅπως τελειωθῶσιν.
γ´. Εὐχὴ πρὸς Θεὸν περὶ ἀφίξεως τῆς αὐτοῦ, καὶ τῆς αὐξήσεως καὶ βεβαιώσεως Θεσσαλονικέων, ἕως τῆς παρουσίας Χριστοῦ.
δ´. Παραίνεσις σωφροσύνης, δικαιοσύνης, ὡς ἐπὶ κρίσει φιλαδελφίας, ἐργασίας ἰδιοπράγμονος.
ε´. Διδασκαλία περὶ τῆς τοῦ Θανάτου καταλύσεως ἐπὶ ζώντων καὶ νεκρῶν ἐπιφανεία Χριστοῦ.
