Frothingham here offers the Syriac text, with an annotated Italian translation, of Jacob of Sarug’s homily on the Baptism of Constantine (832 lines), based chiefly two manuscripts, one from the Vatican and the other from the British Museum.
Frothingham presents an ambitious overview of the development of orientation, or the directionality of sacrifice, prayer, and ritual, played a key role in ancient ceremonies, in the practice of ancient religions.
This series of papers shows that a group of monuments erected by the French Cistercian monks, and here for the first time fully described and illustrated, were the earliest Italian buildings using transitional-Gothic architecture.
