-Overall a very balanced introduction to the Christological controversies of the era and the life and thought of St. Severus.
-The they could not have picked a better anthology of texts to include in this book. The works of St. Severus included in this monograph give the reader a very clear picture of St. Severus as liturgist, homilist, theologian, pastor and Patriarch. The translations are of very high quality.
-That said, I had a few minor disagreements with the author's commentary.
-There were a few typos (in my edition, at least) that interfered with the meaning of the text.
-In their translations of St. Severus' works, they will often times redact the Patristic quotes the Saint provides, presumably to save space(?). I found that a bit frustrating.
Now, if someone can help us resolve this question, I would be most appreciative:http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,66558.0.html
I love St. Severus, I've learned so much about the faith from him over the past five years or so. I want to read everything I possibly can from/about him.
