Jacob Of Sarug and the chalcedonian council
« on: December 18, 2017, 08:42:48 AM »
I had read some people consider Mar Jacob of Sarug as Chalcedonian and other as non chalcedonian.
Who know more about the position of Mar Jacob of Sarug?

He was definitely non-Chalcedonian. I've never seen anyone claim otherwise (though I guess it's not surprising if someone does).

Weird, though I guess the 1940s was still an era when Catholic scholarship could occasionally have something of a sectarian cast...  If you Google-scholar it, no one references the Peeters article in positive terms.

Take a look at footnote 503 (p. 127) in Volker Menze's Justinian and the Making of the Syrian Orthodox Church, which has a good and recent bibliography on Jacob of Serug's Christology: https://books.google.be/books?hl=en&lr=&id=q8xYwAEFFzkC&oi=fnd&pg=PR9&ots=8qlZgB5_Kv&sig=IDP_nm9xf8ak_Vai4zla4SOTVXg#v=onepage&q=Paul%20Peeters&f=false

There's also the ginormous and pretty completely comprehensive bibliography here: http://www.csc.org.il/db/browse.aspx?db=SB&sL=J&sK=Jacob%20of%20Sarug&sT=keywords

In general who say that he is a chalcedonian are based on a homily that he has writed in the end of his life describing Jesus in dual nature. There is also a homily for him against the chalcedonian council.  I think all who say that he was chalcadonian are base on what Paul Peeters had write and accepting his argument.
