On the Dormition of Mary
Early Patristic Homilies
Translated by Brian E. Daley
On the Dormition of Mary by Brian E. Daley
Book DescriptionThis volume brings together the earliest attempts by Greek theologians and preachers to interpret Mary's dormition, or "falling asleep" in the Lord, in the light of the whole Paschal Mystery. In addition to the sermon of Bishop John of Thessalonica, the earliest "official" retelling by an Orthodox bishop of the traditional narrative of Mary's entry into heavenly glory, the collection includes eleven other homiles from the seventh and eighth centuries, as well as a metrical translation of St. John of Damascus' canon for the feast. Some of the authors, like St. John of Damascus, St. Andrew of Crete and St. Germanus of Constantinople, are well known - others less so. All of the works gathered here represent profound and original efforts to integrate the celebration of Mary's death into the wider context of the Christian theology of redemption.
