The Catholic Church glories in every action of Christ, but her glory of glories is the Cross. Knowing this, Paul says: "But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ."3 It was a wonderful thing for the man blind from birth to receive his sight in SiIoe, but what is that compared to the blind...

Mystagogical Lectures

Before W. J. Swaans's article in Le Museon in 1942 the Cyrilline authorship of the Easter Lectures was in this century rarely challenged. It had not, however, always been so, and the case for Cyril's authorship has always rested on thin ice. In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries the Cyrilline authorship was strongly contested...

CIYRIL'S SINGLE EXTANT sermon is found in only two manuscripts so far edited, B (Bod!, Roe 25, xi s.) and R (Paris, B. N. graec. 1447 [Regius 2030; ca. 1100)),. There is a lacuna in B, but R is apparently entire. The evidence, on balance, strongly favours the Cyrilline authenticity of the Sermon. The silence of the monk Alexander and the Armenian tradition...

IN THIS LEITER to the Emperor Constantius II, written shortly after his accession to the see of J erusalem,2 St. Cyril announces the appearance of a luminous cross (perhaps actually a parhelion) in the sky over Jerusalem. The genuineness of the letter, although not entirely unchallenged, is incontestable, apart from the concluding sentences, which, with the...

Four fragments that have been attributed to Cyril come purportedly from his sermons or homilies, of which the only complete and genuine example is the Sermon on the Paralytic_ (The sermon on the feast of the Purification [Hypapante] is complete but spurious.)! Even the three sermon-fragments printed below appear to be spurious...
