In the two articles reprinted here, Dom Hugh Connolly offers an English translation of two homilies from Jacob of Serugh dealing with the Eucharist. Connolly used the Syriac text of Bedjan’s edition of Jacob’s homilies (also available from Gorgias Press), homilies 22 and 95 in that edition. A short selection from homily 53 is also translated because of its related subject matter. Connolly gives an introduction to each homily and includes some explanatory notes to the texts. These translations originally appeared in The Downside Review, nos. 27 (1908) and 29 (1910).
