Works of Severus of Antioch
« on: August 22, 2012, 01:26:41 PM »
Are there, besides his letters, any other translations of the works of Severus of Antioch? Do English translations of his cathedral homilies exist? I have been reading a few of Severus' letters and I'm quite impressed.

Thank you.

In another thread, I gave a link to the book "Severus of Antioch" by C.T.R. Hayward. Towards the end of said book, there are many translated writings of this great and Holy father.

Here it is:

Fr. Peter said that some of the commentary from the Author(s) did not accurately represent Severian Christology, but it is a good resource.

"I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die [...] These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." -The Lord Jesus Christ

Nice! I was just about to start looking for sources for a paper, and this'll probably be one of them. For the translations, at least.  ;D

A paper? You make me curious, what are you going to write a paper about?

Fr. Peter Farrington has put together a list of St. Severus' works. Unfortunately much of it has not been translated to English.

The best place to look is Gorgias Press: http://www.gorgiaspress.com/bookshop/searchadv.aspx?IsSubmit=true&SearchTerm=Severus&submit.x=0&submit.y=0

Iain Torrance published a few of Severus' letters with Gorgias. Also see Torrance's Christology After Chalcedon.

A paper? You make me curious, what are you going to write a paper about?

I'm writing on Chalcedonian and non-Chalcedonian Christology. It's going to be a rewrite and expansion of a previous paper I wrote on the topic, and it'll be my senior seminar.

Effectively my thesis is that we have a shared belief explained in fairly different ways, and that much of the historical debate and condemnations have been against positions that neither side hold (e.g. that the non-Chalcedonians hold a Christology that's more or less Eutychian, which is a complete fallacy).

Interesting, I'm writing a paper about the Byzantine Empire in which I have to give summaries of things like the Council of Ephesus and Chalcedon. It seems we have some overlap there.
