Greetings once again with the Feast of St. Ephrem!

In lieu of a new translation, we share some lovely images of a manuscript in the Vatican Library containing the Ephremic homily On the Passion of the Savior.


This manuscript, which dates to the 10th or 11th century, is a festal homilary, containing sermons by St. Athanasios, St. Gregory of Nyssa, St. Gregory the Theologian, St. John Chrysostom, St. Cyril of Alexandria, and others.


This text has been translated by Fr. Ephrem (Lash) and can be found by clicking here.
