JAMES OF EDESSA
THEHYMNS OF SEVERLS OF ANTIOCH AND OTHERS
SYJEIIAO VERSION EDITED AND TRANSIjATED
BY
E. W. BROOKS
PREFACE
The folloAving text is taken from two Brit. Mus. MSS., Add. 17,134 (A)
and 18,816 (B), which contain James of Edessa's revision of the Syriac
version of a collection of Greek hymns, most of which are ascribed to Se-
verus of Antioch. This version was according to James ' made by Paul
bishop of Edessa, whih^ living in Cyprus to which he had fled before the
Persian invasion. As the only well-known bishop Paul of Edessa died in
526, it has been supposed that there is some confusion with the archi-
mandrite Paul, the translator of Gregory, who was in Gyprus in 624"; but
it is incredible that James should have made such a mistake, and, as in his
chronicle he mentions a Paul bishop of Edessa contemporary with the Per-
sian invasion and states that many eastern bishops fled to Egypt bcfore the
Persians'', and as we know that on the conquest of Egypt many of its inhab-
itants took refuge in Cyprus, it is obvious to identify tliis Paul with our
translator, and the date of the version many therefore be fixed at 619-629.
It was not a literal rendering, but contained alterations and interpolations
made for rhythmical purposes; and therefore in 675'
James of Edessa made
a revision of it, in which literal translations were inserted above the line and
interpoLitions were distinguished by red paint. Of the pre-Jacobean text no
MSS. seem to survive, and the actual recension of James exists in the
two above-mentioned MSS. only, though coUections based upou it are
found in a Large number of Brit. Mus. MSS. described in Wright,
p.
340-358,
in Vat. Syr. 94, Paris Syr. 337, Oxford Syr. 351, Cambridge Add. 1993,
and others. In all of thesc the liymns are in different order (no two, as far

as I am a^varc, agree), and many olliers arc adtlcd; and thcy are no doubl,
recensions niade for liturgical purposes, Avhicli also appears from ihe fact
that the hymns are arranged according to the 8 tones to ^vhich they were
set : ^vhence the coUection is often known as the Octoechus, though in tlic
two chief MSS. the tones arc not menlioned except in a few places, where
they seem to be latcr additions'. None of these later recensions contains
the prosphoric hymns ^ The corrections and painted letters are not found
in B, except in part of hymns 131 and 132; but, as B often gives a better
text than A, Wright's conclusion that A is an autograph of James cannot
be accepled, though from the handwriting it cannot be much later, while
B isofthe9'"cent.
The chief value of tiie work ol" .James however lies in the fact that he
gives the scriptural references in rull in the margin, thus supplying a new
source for the criticism of the sacred text. In the NT. the citations are all
from the Peshito except in some passages from the Acts, where another text
seems to have been used, while in the OT. they are sometimes from the
Peshito, sometimes from the LXX, sometimes from neither, and I cannot trace
ariy principle except that in Genesis they are from P, in the rest of the law
from LXX, in Job and in the books not contained in the Hebrew from LXX,
in Daniel from Theodotion, and in Isaiah in the earlier hymns generally from
P, in the later generally from LXX ^ In tlie Syriac text I have given all
citations in fuli; but in the translation, where they come from P, I have
given only the variations from Lee's text, except in the Psalms, where
I have used that of Barnes, and the Gospels, where 1 have used that of
Gwilliam as the standard. The citations are always from P except where the
contrary is stated : in such cases they are translatel in full. In B, except in
hymns 131, 132, only references, not citations, are given. This is some-
times done by A also, and in these cases I add the words
'
not quoted
'.
Of the liturgical MSS. I havc used Brit. Mus. Add. 14,514, 17,136,
18,819, 17,140, 14,713, 17,273, and the Cambridge, Paris, and Vatican
MSS., for photographs of the last two of whicli I am indebted to tlie kindness
of M^' Graflin, but I have not except in a few places given their variants. The
variants of A I have given throughout, but, to save space, 1 have not gene-
1. For the sake of comparison wilh other recensions I have given llie tone (third
of the numbers preceding the text), wherever I could learn it from other MSS.
2. A few are in Brit. Mus. Add. 18,819, but in another version.
3. As James' own recension was made later, we cannot expect anyconnexion with it,
nor, as far as I have been to compare it, have I found any. In very few cases there is
some resemblance to the Syriac Hexaplar.

rally giveii tliose of B except wliere supported by some other MS. The
painted words and letters are represented in the text by estrangelo type and
in the translation by italics, and the corrections of James are placed in the
notes, the beginning of the passages to which they refer being indicated in
the Syriac by'' and in the English

but in the latter case the printers
have in some places substituted

If a test is applied to the righteous through.
My heart is crushed within by reason of my sins.
Our Saviour has bestowed upon me thoughts.
Good and gentle is thy yoke and thy burden.
Reep me without scathe from the burning darts.
Ye who have bowed your necks to submit to.
Ye who have fled to the high and suprasensual.
Yery great is the power of thy mercifuhiess.
I know that the days of my life have passed.
When I hear thee saying through.
A valley of weeping is this world.
From the strange seed of tares which.
Wherefore, 0! my soul, while turning away.
My soul has passed through the sore rush of.

fthat he must first believe that he is' not to regard the matter of the first
lines of the hymns of the holy Severus which are here set down as something
superfluous and unworthy of attention and examination : for all the hymns
which are dispersed through the body of the book in many words and at
fuU length are here compressed into a small compass. You must there-
fore know that, if you wish to find whatever hymn you want without
trouble, you must rcad the head-lines (^ts^aXxioc) given above, and note their
superscriptions as placed before each of them; and you will easily find that
which you want by taking the superscription or number in the numerals of ink
placed at the head of each of them, and looking in the body of the book and

O! the won-
derful and divine pangs of the God-bearer atul Virgin Mary, through which
conception and virginity were brought together, and the couch
of
copulation
did not precede the marvellous birth, nor yet did the birth break the stamps
and seals
of
virginity. He who was born of the Father in a divine manner
and without passion, the same was also born of the Virgin in a fleshly
manner without passion, being one out of two, Godhead and manhood.
Him the Magi" also worship; and by means of ofPerings they silently pro-
claimed him to be God : for they ofTered him frankincense as a god; and
gold as a king; and myrrh, which is a symbol of the life-giving mortality
which on our behalf he took upon him and endured of his own will, who
is the only merciful one.

Son and Word of God, who filleth all things, but is not liimself confined and
contained by all things, bowed the lieavens and came down

'
in his
mercy to us on earth, and was contained without being confined in a
virgin's womb in a manner inexpressible. Having become incarnate from
her without variation, lie is born according to ihe laws of conception; and
by an innovation he overcame the laws of nature : for he Mas conceived as
a babe by a miracle, and fulfilled the time of nine months' conception; but
by his birth he did not burst the bond and thc closed seals of his mother's
virginity. Ask not how : for, if he is Emmanuel who was born, his birth is
incomprehensible, and the manner of such a miracle is past finding out^
Being led therefore by the star of light to go up to heaven with the eyes of
our mind, let us all with the Magi' bless and worship him as Maker of hea-
ven andof earth, ofl^ering praise to his great mercy and his grace toward us.

God hath spoken in his Holy One \

Isaiah, when
he learned beforehand the mystery of the seedless birth from the God-bearer
Mary, fell into astonishment and great wonder, and cried with a loud voice
and said, Behold! a virgin shall conceive and bear
)^^
: and, when he had
considered him that was born and known that he is the eternal Son of the Fa-
ther, and that the same became incarnate without variation as a babe in his
mercy, the child that is born to us now and not to him, proclaimed and said in
prophecy,
A child hath been born unto us, a son hath also been given unto
us
% whom also his very name showed to be a messenger of a great purpose
and a wonderful counsellor and mighty God. How then is she not the God-
bearer, who bare the miglity God, ye unbelievers, uninstructed, and foolish?
whom also acknowledge witli us, worshipping and saying, Praise to thee !

In the wish to see with the eyes of my mind the depth of
the mystery of the Humanization, I both stretch my intellect and apply it to
all sides; and, being little enlightened, I restrain my siglit and pass from
speculation (Oswpta), since I am overcome by the incomprehensible light of the
miracles. He who in the beginning is the Word of God and the Father
without ceasing to be God was wholly contained without being con4ined in

with God, that is ''strenuous in^ evil deeds, but sluggish towards virtue,
blamed'' Ghrist the doer of good deeds because he healed souls afflicted witli
bodily disease on the Sabbath a7ul freed them from their pains : for ''he as^
the So7i and Word of God and the Father, who had himself given them the
law, fknew that it did not forbid men

to do acts tending to the deliverance
of souls on the Sabbath-c?ay; for it said, ^No^ man shall** do works upon it,
save oi)ly those that are done by every soul . For this reason also on the
same Sabbath-dRy he by word only ordered a certain man Twhose hand was
withered" to stretch this forth, and it w^as stretched forth ichole. And tlms he
taught the unjust accusers themselves when they saw it that because they
had hands withered for the purpose of doijiy good actions they dishonoured
the Sabbath; he that is teacher of all things and God, as well as merciful.

The robber by passing many nights ^vithout sleep made spoil oi
all things that moth and rust corrupted; and by means of them he kindled
more fiercely for himself the flame of the fire of hell that is not quenched :
but, when he was about to sleep the last sleep, t/iat is to undergo death, and
was jfastened aiid haiujing on the tree, having in the very passion
of
the cross
marvellously recognised God who had become incarnate and was being
crucified with him and like him, he believed on hini unthout hesitation; and
then by his tongue he broke into the kingdom by crying and saying to hini,
(( Remember me, mg Lord, when thou comest in thy kingdom -; and like a
violent man he by means
of
a few \xords
of faith took it by force\ in accor-
dance with thy true

saying, Christ, God : to which admit us also hi/ thij

(( Be brave and let your heart be strengfthened


'.
Ye who through the laver of grace appear like lights in the world, be streng-
thened
^
with might from above through the Holy Spirit, and turn away your
face from the old man which is corrupted by the pleasure
'
of
lusts of error.
For so by rmaking profession
^
in actual deeds you would hold out the word
^*
of life to unbelievers, and you will be.known to be pressing towards the
true life that is to come and is promised to believers; and you ivill be admitted
to reign with Christ according to the riches
of
his great mercy.
This hynin is not the composition
of
Mar Sevenis, but is thought to be the work
of
John son
of
Aphthonia, or
of
Mar Rabbula bishop
of
Edessa

preceding, but it is not guite clear. As the corrections and painted letters show both to be irans-
lations, it is not easy to see how either could be ascribcJ to Rabbula, who wrote in Syriac.

Though you are stripping oir the raiment that is outside you, yet
put not ofTfrom you the liidden raiment within, ye who have been baptized";

In the midst of the church will I praise thee \

who is God, when standing at that time in the midst of the Jews, showed
plainly that he is God of God^ by nature, even after he had emptied himself
Tand by dispensation become truly

man; and as a partner and sharer of the
essence (ojcria) of his

invisible Father he
'
says, I know him, because I am
from him , and he immediately added further as a mere man and said, for
he also sent me . Therefore let us praise him who through the mediation
of his mercifulness has joined us to his Godhead

of
his great mercy.

myself to have everything. I go on to ponder upon the Son, nor am I

that is full and of equal honour. But, when further in addition to these I

sentent sur ce texte Tedition oflicielle de Gonstantinople de 1834'.
Un certain nombro do recits se trouvent uniquement dans le texte
de Tedition de 1834, soit que ces recits soient totalemeut nouveaux

Ces trois bienheureuses et saintes vierges etaient soeurs; elles vivaient
aux jours de Maximien rempereur impie, elles habitaieut pres des thermes de
Pythie. On les livra entre les mains de Fronton, president de ces contrees,
qui les ayant lait venir en sa presence les interrogea. Les vierges saintes,
comme d'une seule bouche, confosserent avec hardiesse le nom de notre
Dieu, le Christ.
Le president ordonna de frapper cruellement d'abord Menodore et d(> bii
briser les jambes a coups de gros batons. Elle rendit soii am(^ cn priant,

On exposa le corps devant h^s deux sceurs el, le pr(3sident les engagea avec

insultes, rimpie president, qui, irrite, ordonna de bruler Metrodore et de
lui briser les jambes a coups de gros batons. Elle rendit ainsi son ;ime a Dieu
en priant.
On mit ensuite en presence du president, Nymphodoie; elle aussi confessa
pkis glorieusement encore la verite de la foi du Christ. On lui deebira, sur
A foi. 31 la potence, les cotes avec des onglets de fer. Et on lui demanda :
*
Reviens-
tu a Fadoration des dieux? Elle repondit parmi les tortures : Potn- mo* / r/>,

moi aussi, mes deux souirs et de paraitre devant le Christ alin que nous puis-
sions nous rejouir ensemble eternellement. On lui brisa aussi les jambes.
Elle rendit aussitot son ame a Dieu.
On jcta leur corps au feu; mais il se lit tout a coup des tonnerres et des
foudres, une forte phiie se mit a tomber, et les corps des saintes resterent
sans bruler. Lo feu s'etendit et brula ie president Fronton et les bourreaux
et s'eteignit ensuite.
Quelques chretiens enleverent les corps des saintes et les inhumerent avec
honneur. Ils feterent leur memoire le 10 Septembre.

eut un certain .lacques (jui, se trouvant pres de
la croix et temoin des miracles, recueillit, pour le conserver, du saint sang
lorsqu'il coula. II le conserva dans un recipient de courge et le tint cache
pres de lui. A sa mort il le laissa a deux ermites du desert, puis, transmis,
de Tun a Tautre, de gen(3ration en generation, il (3chut a un liomme pieux et
moine qui s'appelait Barypsaba. Ce sang opera nombre de guerisons et de
prodiges ; et c'est a cause de ces prodiges qu'une nuit les inlideles le luerent
traitreusement. Mais le tresor de la vie, le precieux sang, resta dans le reci-
pient de courge dans lequel il se trouvait, aupres de Martyros, Ic disciple
du saint, et accomplit beaucoup de prodiges.

En ce joiir, marlyre du pretre Jean, le nouveau marlyr.
Ci' bierilieiiroiix marlyr du Clirisl etail do la villo do Ilierapolis, appelee
actuellemeiit Tchemecbkalzak. Fils de parents pieux, il etait doux, pacifiquc,
palient, aimant la priere et zele pour les orphelins et les veuves, ce dont
d'autres pretres devinrent jaloux et le persecuterent peiidant longtemps. Se
trouvant mal a Taise dans la ville, il erigea, avec la permission du gouverneur
infidele, une eglise, construite en bois, hors des murs de la ville, a Fendroit
dit FEscIave Rouge, et Tacheva en une grande et belle conslruction.
Ce que voyant, ses ennemis en furent plus outres et se rendanl aupres du
gouverneur, ils le calomnierent. Ce dernier se trouvant, ce jour-Ia, grise par
le vin, ordonna a ses soldals d'aller demolir reglise; ils amasserent dans un
endroit tout le materiel de redilice et
y
mirent le feu. IIs lierent ensuite le
bienheureux pretre par les pieds et ies mains et le jeterent dans les flammes
;
il
y
rendit son amo a Dieu on priant.
Quelques-uns parmi los soldats trancherent sa main droite et Tapporte-
rent au gouverneur pendant la nuit ; les doigts brulaient comme des cierges.
Mais Dieu revela rinnocence du juste, par une lumiero oolalanlc ([ui jaillil du
ciel sur le corps du saint, co que tous les chretiens el los infideles apercurcnt,
et ils lancerent des maledictions contre ses ennemis.

On recita les ollices des vepres, apres quoi il arrosa de nouveau le jardin
de deux cents cruches d'eau, alla dire ses prieres de repos [complies] et dormit
un peu. Rentre dans sa cellule, il pria Dieu avec beaucoup de larmes et
supplications et dit : Mon Dieu, accorde le pardon a ta servante, qui a
perdu la grace de sa personne. Et elle passa luiit annees dans des mor-
tifications pareilles.
Quant a son mari, il priait Dieu de lui faire connaitre rendroit ou se
trouvait sa femme; car il se disait : Ne serait-elle pas partie avec un autre?
Et il entendit une voix du ciel qui lui dit : Elle est partie

avec le Saint-Esprit. *

Et le mari dit : Seigneur, montre-la-moi. II entendit de nouveau bi voix : Vers
le matin, tu iras par la route dite de Saint-Pierre, et celle qui te rencon-
trera la premiere et qui te saluera, c'est ta femme.
Theodore fut envoye par le prieur avec des chameaux pour chercher du
ble et de rhuile. Chemin faisant, elle apergut de loin son mari, le reconnul
et se dit : INIalheur a moi ! mon doux mari, que de peines je me donne pour me
delivrer du peche que j'ai commis envers toi. Lorsqu'elle fut pres de lui.

elle se prosterna et dit : Salut a toi, mon seigneur. II accueillit le salut mais
ne saisit pas les paroles. Et Iorsqu'ils furent eloignes Tun de Tautre, le
mari dit : Seigneur, pourquoi ne m'as-tu pas montre ma femme, comme tu
me Favais promis? II entendit une voix qui lui dit : Getait elle qui sur la
route s'est prosternee devant toi et t'a salue. II revint sur ses pas, mais ne
parvint pas a la rejoindre. Theodore, apres avoir accompli service qui le lui
avait ete ordonne, rentra au couvent.

Le Seigneur fit de grands prodiges par Fintermediaire de Theodore, car

rendirent au couveni Outevtasneki. Ils dirent au prieur du couvent et aux
freres : Votre moine Theodore a violente ma fille et Ta rendue enceinte. Le
prieur fit venir Theodore et lui dit : Pourquoi as-tu commis cette iniquite?
Theodore repondit : Je te demande pardon, je n'ai pas de reponse a te don-
ner. Et ils retournerent a leur couvent.
Lorsque la femme mit au monde Tenfant, on Tapporta et on le remit a
Theodore. Le prieur le fit sortir du couvent avec Tenfant. Theodore s'en alla
auprcs des bergers et fit allaiter Tenfant par les brebis durant sept ans, et
avec beaucoup de peines il eleva Tenfant en dehors du couvent et lui donna
le nom de Theodore.
Le demon, voyant la perseverance de la bienheureuse, prit les traits de
son mari et lui dit : Je suis heureux de t'avoir trouvee, ma femme, car de-
puis que tu m'as quitte,

mettre d'entraves a tes mortihcations. Qu'est devenue hi beaute de ton visage?

parce que le fils du comte- Jean a couche avec moi, et c'est pourquoi je me
suis enfuie dans cette solitude, pour

faire penitence de Tiniquite que j'ai
commise. Et lorsqu'elle eut eleve les mains pour prier, le demon disparut;
elle le reconnut alors, et s'ecria a haute voix : Mon Dieu, ne m'abandonne pas.
Sa nourriture se composait de legumes sauvages et d'eau de mer. Les
betes sauvages lui apportaient des legumes, et elle ne s'eloigna jamais du
couvent. Ses larmes coulaient comme un fleuve, jour et nuit, et elle ne fai-
sait que dire : Seigneur, toi seul es sans peche; pardonne-moi mes fautes.
Ses ongles devinrent comme ceux d'un leopard; ses cheveux pousserent
incultes comme la criniere d'un lion, la vue de ses yeux baissa

Devorez cette femme prostituee. Mais la bienheureuse femme n'en fut
aucunement epouvantee. Alors le demon lui fit entrevoir de Fargent seme
par terre, qu'une foulo de gens s'arrachaient. Elle fit le signe de la sainte
croix et ces apparitions s'evanouirent.
Un autre jour le d('mon lui fit entrevoir de nombreux soldats a cheval
qui, venant a elle, lui dirent : Va au-devant du prince et prosterne-toi devant
lui. Elle leur repondit : Je ne me prosternerai que devant mon Seigneur et
je ne servirai que hii seul. Alors le prince arrivant, ordonna aux soldats de
battre la servante du Ghrist; ils la frapperent jusqu'a hi rendre a moitie
morte, et elle tomba a terre. Les bergers Tayant aperguo et hi croyant morte
se rendirent au couvent et annoncerent au prieur du couvent que Theodorc
etait mort. Les moines s'y rendirent et le trouverent inanime, mais lorsqu'ils
s'aper9urent qu'il etait encore en vie, ils retournerent au couvent.
A loi. .34
Au milieu de la nuit, revenant a elle,
*
elle se dit en gemissant : Malheur a
moi, restee sans aide et sans secours, k quel point mes peches me font justice!
Elle leva les yeux et les mains au ciel et pria jusqu'au matin. Elle regarda
et aperQut un homme, sous les apparences d'un domestique, tenant un pla-
teau rempli de mets doux, qui les lui presenta en disant : Le prince qui t'a
fait battre m'envoie pour te dire : Mange de cela et pardonne-moi de t'avoir
tourmentee sans le savoir. Mais elle reconnut la ruse et dit : Retire-toi, sa-
tan
'
;
j'ai pour soutien le Christ. Et aussitot le demon disparut, et les ap-
paritions ne se renouvelerent plus.

Apres que les sept annees de penitence se fiirent accomplies, le prieur
et les religieux du couvent Innaknian se rendirent au couvent de Theodore
et dirent : Dieu nous a fait connaitre en une vision que les peches de
Theodore lui sont remis ; faites-Ie entrer au couvent. Et ils partirent ensem-
ble et le conduisirent au couvent; mais on ne lui permit plus de sortir du
couvent, pour ne plus succomber a la tentation ; on renferma dans une
cellule elroite, petite et obscure, pendant deux ans.
Pendant ces jours il
y
eut une secheresse qui mit a sec la source du
puits, et les freres eurent a souffrir du manque d'eau. Le prieur lui or-
donna d'aller au puits et d'y faire des
*
prieres. II se leva, s'y rendit et pria
Dieu; il suspendit ensuite a Taide d'une corde la cruche dans le puits a sec,
la remplit d'eau et la remonta, car une source plus abondante encore avait
surgi dans le puits, et il retourna a sa cellule.
Lorsqu'il connut le jour de sa mort, il lit venir renfant dans sa cellule,

Le prieur ordonna de ne rien dire a personne, jusqu'a ce que ses calom-

du couvent Innaknian, et dit au prieur : Le mari de ta fille vient dc mourir;

sur son cheval et le conduisit au couvent. En apercevant sa femme niorte, il
se mit a sangloter a haute voix, accompagnee de profonds dechirements qui
firent verser des larmes a tout le monde.
Un grand nombre de religieux et d'anachoretes du desert se reunirent et
renterrerent avec grande pompe et benedictions, en glorifiant Celui qui

Quant a son mari, il pria le prieur du couvent de lui donner la cellule

Ce bienheureux pontife du Christ vivait aux jours de Diocletien, Tempe-
reur impie; il etait reveque des Italiens. A cause des persecutions de Tepoque,
il quitta Tltalie et se rendit dans la region des Bithyniens, et arrive dans un
village nomme Sorei, il descendit chez un fidele dont le nom etait Cornelius.
II
y
enseignait les infideles et raflermissait les fideles. II
y
construisit une
eglise au nom du saint archange Michel. II ordonna diacre Cornelius et lui
confia les divins mysteres.
II partit ensuite lui-meme pour le pays de Lycaonie et dlsaurie ou par

Egalement mourut d'une mort bienheureuse, par le glaive et pour la foi
du Christ, dans la ville dTconium, le saint martyr et eveque d'Iconiuni,
Oronatus que d'autres appellent Coronatus.
En ce meme jour subit les tortures et la mort le bienheureux martyr Theo-
dore, qu'on jeta a la mer dans la ville d'Alexandrie.
En ce jour, commemoration de sainte Onesima, notre mere ascete, qui
etait fille d'empereur et qui possedait douze villes; k qui on remit tout le
royaume, a la mort des parcnts, mais elle, apres avoir tout distribue aux
pauvres, se retira dans une profonde solitude,

d'une grande vie ascetique et s'en alla aupres du Christ vers lequel elle

entre les mains du president. Mis en sa presence, ils confesserent ouvertement
la divinite du Christ. Et ils rendirent leur Ame, au milieu d'atroces tortures
et d^effrayants supplices, a Dieu, par les mains des anges, le 13 Septembre.
En ce jour, fete de la consecration de la grande eglise de la sainte Resurrectioii.
La bienheureuse imperatrice Helene trouva la sainte croix du Christ.
Lorsque Constantin le Grand eut construit la grande eglise de la sainte Resur-
rection a Jerusalem, il convoqua pour le 13 Septembre, nombre d'eveques

divin tombeau, reste egalement couvert et rempli de terre, et sur lequel un
tcniple d'idoles avait ete eleve par lcs paiens. Car apres avoir fait Tinvention
de la Croix, dcsccndanl du saint Golgotlia, cUe arriva a remplacement du
jardin oii se trouvail lc saint tombeau taille dans un roc; elle ordonna de
transporter loin de rendroit toutc la lerre et les matirres se trouvant a Tin-
tcrieur et mit ainsi a dccouvert le saint tombeau.
L'imperatrice fit construire un grand templc ct une elegante chapelle ornee
d'or, sur remplacement sacre de la resurrection de notrc Sauvcur, tous les
deux elegants et sublimcs, auxquels clle fit de nombreux dons, et c'est ensuite
qu'elle exposa la vivifiante et precieusc croix du Seigneur.
Et par ordre et par une loi edictee de rempereui-, il fut construit une su-
pcrbe et grande eglise, un temple ressemblant au ciel et une cliapelle de toute
ricliesse et de toute beaute sur le tombeau du Clirist, ainsi qu'au saint Gol-
gotha et autres lieux saints de r[ncarnation de notre Seigneur; cndroits que
nous croyons plus vastes que la terre, plus eleves que les cieux dcs cieux et
plus beaux que le paradis ; et nous savons que Celui qui contient tout et ne
peut etre contenu,
y
a ete transporte ct
y
a ete contenu avec son corps et a
souffert la mort pour notre salut.
Cesl pourquoi 11 a rendu cet endroit resplendissant d'innombrablcs bicn-
faits, le comblant de vraies delices, bicn plus quc la premiere demcurc, lc
paradis de TEdcn, car la nous avons trouve la mort par lc pcclic et nous
