In the two articles reprinted here, Dom Hugh Connolly offers an English translation of two homilies from Jacob of Serugh dealing with the Eucharist. Connolly used the Syriac text of Bedjan’s edition of Jacob’s homilies (also available from Gorgias Press), homilies 22 and 95 in that edition. A short selection from homily 53 is also translated because of its related subject matter. Connolly gives an introduction to each homily and includes some explanatory notes to the texts. These translations originally appeared in The Downside Review, nos. 27 (1908) and 29 (1910).

    Jacob of Sarug’s Homily on the Transfiguration of Our Lord

    This edition of Mar Jacob of Sarug's (d. 521) homily on the Transfiguration emphasizes the unity of the Old and New Testament. Jacob focuses on the symbolism of the apostles Jesus brings with him. Moses, the head of prophecy, and John, the beauty of apostleship, come together and Elijah and Simon are joined so that the keys Peter received over creation might be ratified. The volume constitutes a fascicle of The Metrical Homilies of Mar Jacob of Sarug, which, when complete, will contain the original Syriac text of Jacob's surviving sermons, fully vocalized, alongside an annotated English translation.
