Yes, there are additional options but I ran into a bit of a problem testing them so they'll wait for another post.

1. The work used for illustration in John Chrysostom’s “Second sermon on the Gospel of Matthew” which is available in multiple Logos resources. I am using:

  • John Chrysostom. The Homilies of S. John Chrysostom, Archbishop of Constantinople, on the Gospel of St. Matthew, Parts 1 & 2. Translated by Bart Prevost. A Library of Fathers of the Holy Catholic Church. Oxford; London: John Henry Parker; J. G. F. and J. Rivington, 1843–1844.

  • John Chrysostom. “Homilies of St. John Chrysostom, Archbishop of Constantinople on the Gospel according to St. Matthew.” In Saint Chrysostom: Homilies on the Gospel of Saint Matthew, edited by Philip Schaff, translated by George Prevost and M. B. Riddle, Vol. 10. A Select Library of the Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers of the Christian Church, First Series. New York: Christian Literature Company, 1888.

2. I have positioned myself at the top of the second sermon. Note the three reference options shown in the reference box menu – Bible reference, work datatype and page.

3. To search all your resources for references to this work you may let the system do the work - use the Context Menu Reference option and the appropriate search option for your purposes:

4. To find  your top 5 resources that contain the work you may let the system do the work – use the Context Menu Reference option, select a resource that references the work, open the Context Menu to the reference, select datatype John Chrysostom and the available resources in which you can open the work appear in the left side options.

5. The Panel Menu offers you the link to this work in several formats:

URL

Use

URL formatted to paste into a link box

LFHCC

logosres:hmlsstjhnchrystm0708;ref=Bible.Mt1.1

NPNF

logosres:npnfrc10;ref=Bible.Mt1.1

HTML

Use

URL formatted to paste into an HTML page

LFHCC

<a target="_blank" href="http://ref.ly/Mt1.1" class="bibleref" title="Matthew 1:1">Matthew 1:1</a>&nbsp;<a href="logosres:hmlsstjhnchrystm0708;ref=Bible.Mt1.1">&raquo;</a>

NPNF

<a target="_blank" href="http://ref.ly/Mt1.1" class="bibleref" title="Matthew 1:1">Matthew 1:1</a>&nbsp;<a href="logosres:npnfrc10;ref=Bible.Mt1.1">&raquo;</a>

WIKI

Use

URL formatted to paste into a wiki page

LFHCC

[[Matthew 1:1 >> logosres:hmlsstjhnchrystm0708;ref=Bible.Mt1.1]]

NPNF

[[Matthew 1:1 >> logosres:npnfrc10;ref=Bible.Mt1.1]]

RL

Use

URL formatted to paste into a Logos Reading List

LFHCC

[[Matthew 1:1 >> logosres:hmlsstjhnchrystm0708;ref=Bible.Mt1.1]] | The Homilies of S. John Chrysostom, Archbishop of Constantinople, on the Gospel of St. Matthew, Parts 1 & 2

NPNF

[[Matthew 1:1 >> logosres:npnfrc10;ref=Bible.Mt1.1]] | Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers 1.10: Saint Chrysostom: Homilies on the Gospel of Saint Matthew (Catholic Edition)

 

Note that the reference consists of two parts:

  • Logosres: which identifies the resource

  • Ref= which identifies the reference.

In the table above the reference is by Bible reference.

6. If we wish to refer to whichever resource a user happens to have in their library, we need to use the John Chrysostom datatype as the reference. Detailed instructions for finding the correct datatype structure is available in the wiki at Finding the right datatype name and reference. In our case, if we use the Chrysostom data type reference, and copy the Wiki URL we get:

[[John Chrysostom, Homilies on the Gospel of St. Matthew 2 >> logosres:hmlsstjhnchrystm0708;ref=Chrysostom.Hom._Matt._2]]

To extract the datatype from the link:

  • Extract the reference portion (after ref= and before ]] or semicolon) which gives us Chrysostom.Hom._Matt._2

  • Replace underscores after the first period with spaces which gives us Chrysostom.Hom. Matt. 2

  • Replace the first period, the one that separates the datatype from the reference by a semicolon which gives Chrysostom;Hom. Matt. 2

  • In a PB the format [[text of your choice >> Chrysostom:Hom. Matt. 2]] will open your highest priority resource containing the sermon text.
