Jacob of Sarug's Homilies on the Six Days of Creation: The Sixth Day Summary

Jacob of Sarug's Homilies on the Six Days of Creation: The Sixth Day by Edward Mathews Jr

In this sixth installment of the long Homily 71, On the Six Days of Creation, Jacob treats the events of the sixth day. Recognized as a saint by both Chalcedonian and non-Chalcedonian Christians alike, Jacob of Sarug (d. 521) produced many narrative poems that have rarely been translated into English. Of his reported 760 metrical homilies, only about half survive. Part of a series of fascicles containing the bilingual Syriac-English editions of Saint Jacob of Sarug's homilies, this volume contains his homilies on the Six Days of Creation. The Syriac text is fully vocalized, and the translation is annotated with a commentary and biblical references. The volume is one of the fascicles of Gorgias Press's The Metrical Homilies of Mar Jacob of Sarug, which, when complete, will contain all of Jacob's surviving sermons. In this sixth installment of the long Homily 71, On the Six Days of Creation, Jacob treats the events of the sixth day, the creation of the large beasts and other land animals, and then the creation of man and woman in the persons of Adam and Eve.
