Severus of Antioch (d. 538) disagreed with Julian, bishop of Halicarnassus, on the question of the corruptibility of Jesus’ body, and the two engaged in polemical disputes in writing. This volume contains the Syriac version, with Latin translation, of a series of letters between the two men, Severus refutation of Julian’s “Tome,” and the former’s Refutation of Heretical Propositions. The Syriac text is edited from manuscripts at the Vatican Library and the British Museum. Sanda gives an index of authors cited in each work. Along with Sanda’s other editions and translations (also available from Gorgias Press), this volume gives students and scholars a look into the theological sectarianism that affected much of the intellectual and political climate of Late Antiquity. Syriac and Greek scholars interested in patristic translations will also find this work of some interest.
