In this multi-faceted study of Greek texts related to Ephrem, part of the series Études Critiques de Littérature et de Philologie Byzantines, Emereau envisions these works as a genuine and worthy part of Byzantine literature, and his study is especially directed toward Byzantinists. There are sections covering the sources for the study of Ephrem's life, a survey of Ephrem's works (touching on texts in Syriac, Greek, Arabic, Armenian, and Coptic), a specific look at the Greek translations, the poetry of the Greek Ephrem, his influence on homily writers of the 5th cent., Byzantine hymnography and the Syrian origin of the Kontakion (there is also an appendix on Romanos and more detail on Byzantine hymnography), philological contributions stemming from the study of these Greek texts, and, finally, an investigation of rhetoric in the Greek Ephrem. Readers who study Byzantine literature and the broader Ephrem tradition will find this important study of great interest.
