Jacob of Serugh’s modern audience may catch a glimpse of 6th century Syriac Orthodox liturgy through the various works he wrote as a bishop. He teaches in a well-acclaimed poetic form. Harrak examines the depiction of the Eucharist in Mimro 95. Details are not extensive for a full worship service, but Harrak divides verses of this commentary in order to relate stages of liturgy where they do apply within the Pre-Anaphoric and Anaphoric parts of Syriac Orthodox worship. Griffith defines each liturgical event along with modifications Jacob of Serugh made, including his point for faithful attendees to stay the length of the Anaphora.
