about this item

Nine papers from a March 2013 symposium in Melbourne explore the life and times of Severus of Antioch (465-538), a major figure in Coptic Orthodox Christianity. Their topics include whether Severus was the heir of Saint John Chrysostom, the asceticism of Severus: an analysis of struggle in his Homily 18 on the "Forty Holy Martyrs" compared to the Cappadocians and the Syrians, changing Miaphysite attitudes toward Byzantium, Severus at the crossroads of the Antiochene and Alexandrian exegetical tradition, and hymns of Severus and the Coptic Theotokia.
