NOTE: Although R.A.M.S. released another 3 volume version of the Golden Chain prior to this edition's release, Hans Nintzel considered this one far superior, calling it the Magnum Opus of R.A.M.S. When asked if he could save only ONE book from his library, Frater Albertus replied, "Well, it would be the Golden Chain of Homer!".
