Preaching Christology in the Roman Near East

A Study of Jacob of Serugh

Philip Michael Forness

Oxford Early Christian Studies

  • Offers the first monograph-length study of Jacob of Serugh in English that analyzes his theology in order to situate him within particular historical circumstances
  • Explores sources from a wide range of ancient languages that have not previously seen English translation
  • Establishes a new methodology for approaching sermons that have resisted efforts of historical investigation in the past
  • Coordinates sources across a wide range of languages, which allows readers to see how ideas were borrowed and adapted from one culture to another
