Byzantium and the West

Perception and Reality (11th - 15th c.)

Nikolaos G. Chrissis - Athina Kolia-Dermitzaki - Angeliki Papageorgiou, editors



The interaction between Byzantium and the Latin West was intimately connected to practically all the major events and developments which shaped the medieval world in the High and Late Middle Ages – for example, the rise of the ‘papal monarchy’, the launch of the Crusades, the expansion of international and longdistance commerce, or the flowering of the Renaissance. This volume explores not only the actual avenues of interaction between the two sides (trade, political and diplomatic contacts, ecclesiastical dialogue, intellectual exchange, armed conflict), but also the image each side had of the other and the way perceptions evolved over this long period in the context of their manifold contact.

The volume is primarily aimed at scholars and students interested in the history of Byzantium, the Mediterranean world, and, more widely, intercultural contacts in the Middle Ages.

Prayer and the transformation of the self in Early Christian mystagogy

Late Antique History and Religion 18.

Hans van Loon - Giselle de Nie - Michiel Op de Coul - Peter van Egmond, editors


This book is the second in a series on the mystagogy of the Church Fathers produced by the Netherlands Centre for Patristic Research. The first volume, Seeing through the Eyes of Faith: New Approaches to the Mystagogy of the Church Fathers (LAHR, 11), initiated the study of the Church Fathers as mystagogues, since this approach does more justice to the Fathers' own intention in writing a work or a sermon than does regarding them as theologians avant la lettre. Early Christian writers did not primarily seek to offer rational reflection on the faith as an objective in its own right, but their works were rather aimed at an existential transformation in their audience.

The present volume focuses on how the Church Fathers conceived prayer as an aspect of such a process of progressive transformation, and as a means to achieve an awareness of God as Mystery, with whom one could, paradoxically, communicate in prayer. In the essays collected here many aspects and dimensions of the mystagogy of early Christian prayer are examined: different kinds of prayer, their antecedents and their development over time; their historical, theoretical, and ritual contexts and meanings; and their noetic, imaginative, and physical strategies.

Living in the light of Christ

Mystagogy in Cyril of Alexandria's Festal Letters

Late Antique History and Religion 15

Hans van Loon, author


While the original goal of the 'festal letters', written by the archbishops of Alexandria, was to announce the dates of Lent, Easter, and Pentecost, they developed into treatises with pastoral purposes, to be read out in the parishes and monasteries throughout Egypt and Libya. In his book, Hans van Loon studies the mystagogy of Cyril of Alexandria (ca. 378-444) as it can be discerned in his twenty-nine extant festal letters. After an introduction, which deals with the historical background of the festal letters and gives an overview of their contents, various aspects of Cyril's mystagogy are discussed in detail: the centrality of the mystery of Christ; the role of the sacraments; the archbishop's typological interpretation of the Old Testament, and his attitude towards Judaism; how he encourages the faithful to fast and to pray, and to live virtuous lives; and finally, how he envisages our relationship with God.

The Anonymous Syriac Chronicle of 1234 and its Sources

Orientalia Lovaniensia Analecta

Andy Hilkens, author


In the late 1230s or in the 1240s, a Syriac Orthodox historian continued a Syriac Chronicle up to the Year 1204. The result, the Anonymous Syriac Chronicle up to the Year 1234, is the subject of this monograph. While accepting the chronicle’s import for the history of the city of Edessa, the Syriac Orthodox Church and the Crusades, this study approaches the text from a literary historical standpoint, as a valuable source for historical, hagiographical, apocryphal, exegetical and epistolary traditions, taken from extant as well as now lost sources. Through the deconstruction of a process of intercultural transmission that began in the fourth or third century BC, it reveals the influence of a wide range of Jewish, Christian and Islamic sources, written in Syriac, Hebrew, Greek and Arabic, and reconstructs some of the chronicle’s now lost sources such as the chronicle of Andronicus and a medieval Greek history along the way.

Christianity at the Cross Roads

Michael J. Kruger, author

Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge

Professor Kruger begins this ambitious project with a chapter on early Christian sociology, rebutting the ancient claim that the Church housed only the poor and the ignorant. The second chapter explains what was distinctive enough in Christian thought and life to invite “intellectual persecution”. The third examines the interplay between local and universal trends in the evolution of liturgy and governing institutions. In Chapter 4, the teachings of the Ebionites, Cerinthians, and Gnostics are introduced as “alternative pathways”. If we find it surprising that they should wait so long for their entrance in a book that began by noting the diversity of the early Christian world, the riddle is solved in Chapter 5, where Kruger undertakes to show that the Catholic strain was dominant throughout the era.
