Rhythms of Saint Ephrem the Syrian

Select Works of S. Ephrem the Syrian


As a member of the Oxford Movement, Morris had a natural fascination with Eastern Christianity. Using his linguistic skills to translate select works of St. Ephrem into English, he chose those that would create an impact on his fellow Englishmen in the nineteenth century. These works are still treasured by western proponents of Eastern Christianity today.

Morris’s life-long fascination with Eastern Christianity informed his choice to translate select works of St. Ephrem, one of the noted Fathers of the Syrian tradition. Included in this English translation are St. Ephrem’s Thirteen Rhythms on the Nativity, The Pearl (also known as Seven Rhythms on the Faith), Eighty Rhythms upon the Faith, Against the Disputers, and Three Rhythms concerning the Faith. Translated with care from their original Syriac into English, these works were being made available to many in England for the first time. As a tribute to the Saint, they contain some of his most beloved works.

John Brande Morris (1812-1880) was part of the Oxford Movement among Anglican clerics in the nineteenth century. A one-time Fellow of Exeter College, Oxford, he left this post to become a Roman Catholic priest. He was a parish priest for the remainder of his career.

Aphrahat the Persian Sage and the Temple of God

A Study of Early Syriac Theological Anthropology
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0386-3
Aphrahat the Persian Sage, (fl. 337-345 C.E.), was a Syriac Christian author who wrote twenty-three treatises entitled The Demonstrations. This book examines “temple” as a key image for Aphrahat’s theological anthropology. The temple is central for both Jews and Christians; it is the place of sacrifice, meeting, and communication with the Divine. For Aphrahat, the devout Christian person may be a micro-temple which then allows one to encounter the divine both within oneself and through a vision ascent to the heavenly temple.

Healing in the Theology of Saint Ephrem

ISBN: 978-1-4632-0390-0
Ephrem, the most celebrated writer of the Syriac Church, presents a wide range of theological themes and images that are characteristic of fourth-century Syrian Christianity. A significant theme that no one has yet studied in Ephrem is the concept of sickness and healing. This book presents the significance of healing theology and the ways in which the healing of man - spiritually, mentally, and corporally - is highly valued by Ephrem. The main part of the book deals with the causes of spiritual sickness and the process of healing, and the way in which Ephrem places them in the divine history of salvation.
