Cyril, Bishop of Jerusalem, preached eloquent sermons at a time when his city was the focus of vital developments in the Catholic Church. This illuminating study begins with a comprehensive introduction to his life and work. It considers the growing archaeological evidence for Constantine’s complex built on Calvary and the tomb of Christ.
A full account of his Rites is here given with an assessment of Cyril’s thought in the context of 4th Century theological and liturgical development.
