While exegetical and theological treatises often provide the most comprehensive sources for our understanding of the interpretive methods of patristic authors, personal letters also provide a unique perspective. Such is the case with the present letter, attributed to Severus of Antioch and addressed to the deaconess Anastasia. Marius Chaîne publishes here for the first time the Coptic text of the letter and provides a French translation. The letter is presumably a response to a question posed by Anastasia on the interpretation of Matthew 23:35 and thus contains an exegetical exposition of that verse. In his introduction to the text, Chaîne discusses the authenticity of the attribution to Severus, the exegetical method, and the parallel exegetical accounts of the passage in question.

Isaac the Syrian's Spiritual Works

Edited and Translated by Mary T. Hansbury
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0593-5
Isaac the Syrian lived the solitary life in the 7th century. He was born in Qatar and subsequently lived in present day Iraq and Iran. After life as a monk, then briefly as a bishop, he withdrew to live the solitary life. These discourses are primarily for solitaries to consolidate them in the love and mercy of God. In this volume, the text of Isaac V has also been included because of the light which it sheds on Apocatastasis, of increasing interest in academic and ecclesial circles.
