Transfiguration & St. Jacob of Serugh

St. Jacob of Serugh

I am reading once again St. Jacob of Sarug's metrical (!) Homily on the Transfiguration of Our Lord.  

An excellent translation by Thomas Kollamparampil is available from Gorgias Press.  

All who study the Transfiguration would read this metrical homily if I were the magister of the discipuli.  It is a thin book containing both the English and the Aramaic, and I highly recommend it to all.

[The Syriac Orthodox Church has an Anaphora of St. Jacob of Sarug whose author is identified as the great saint himself.]
