Severus was patriarch of Antioch on the Orontes in Syria from 512-518. Though he is venerated as an important saint in the Old Oriental Christian traction, he has mostly been regarded as a heretic elsewhere; and as his works were condemned by imperial edict in 536, very little has survived in the original Greek. This volume translates a key selection of his writings which survived in other languages. It sheds light on his key opposition to the Council of Chalcedon and rehabilitating his reputation as a key figure of late antiquity by explaining his life and times, thinking, homiletic abilities and his pastoral concerns.
