Translation and Introduction by Brian E. Daley, S.J.

Number 18 of Popular Patristics Series

“This collection brings together, in English translation, the earliest extant theological interpretations of the story and the liturgical celebration of Mary’s Dormition: her serene and holy death, and her entry, in the fullness of her humanity, into the divine glory of her risen Son. [...T]hey are important for contemporary Christians in a number of ways: as clues to the original understanding of a feast whose origins are obscure, but which has been solemnly celebrated by the Eastern and Western Churches since the end of the Patristic era; as theological reflections on the meaning, for Christian faith and hope, of Mary and her death; and as works of moving piety and high rhetorical art, representing both the peculiarly poetic character of ancient Christian literature on Mary, and the particular solemnity and importance of the Dormition festival.”
