Cyril of Alexandria (c. 378–444) was one of the most significant figures in the early church: bishop of the church, defender of orthodoxy, proponent of Alexandrian theology. Indeed, he is probably best known as the supporter of the term Theotokos (God-bearer) with regard to Mary in opposition to Nestorius during the early Christological controversies.
But Cyril viewed himself, first and foremost, as an interpreter of Scripture. In this volume in IVP Academic’s Ancient Christian Texts series, Joel Elowsky and David Maxwell offer―for the first time in English―a translation of the surviving Greek and Syriac fragments of Cyril’s commentaries on four New Testament epistles: Romans, 1–2 Corinthians, and Hebrews.
Abounding with Cyril’s insights regarding these canonical texts and biblical themes such as the triune nature of God, Christ’s sacrificial death, and justification, these commentaries are essential tools for understanding Cyril’s reading of Holy Scripture.
