L’Encomium in Sanctos Martyres di Severiano di Gabala (CPG 4950): l’autenticità e altre note

Sever J. Voicu


Stylistic analysis shows that Encomium in sanctos martyres (CPG 4950) was delivered by Severian of Gabala. Remarks on the published text. The Greek indirect tradition amounts to a quotation by Photius (Bibliotheca cod. 274), and a gloss in the Etymologicum Gudianum. The attribution to Severian survives in Armenian, but under a different text form. Proposed litur¬gical context: All-Saints day (after Easter) in Constantinople. The homily probably mentions the Paschal troparion “Christ is risen”.
