Leontius of Jerusalem is considered the most accomplished of the neo-Chalcedonian theologians of the sixth century. He shows himself, in his Testimonies of the Saints, to be an ecumenical theologian attempting to convince Syrian anti-Chalcedonians ('Monophysites') that their objections to Chalcedon are baseless, since all agree, beneath their antithetical formulae, on a christology of hypostatic union. They are urged to abandon their self-important yet discredited mentor, Severus, and to see that Chalcedon had no secret agenda. Gray's edition of this important early Christian treatise provides an introduction, the Greek text, and notes, together with a new translation into readable, modern English.CONTENTSI Little-known works of a little-known writer II Divided over history: the background III The lessons of history IV Testimonies of the saints: the argument for reconciliation V Testimonies of the saints: meeting the charge of dishonesty VI Testimonies of the saints: severing Severians from Severus VII Testimonies of the saints: the weight of the fathers VIII The Aporiae IX The theological contribution X Manuscripts, editions, and translations XI Identity, date, and circumstances XII The corpus XIII The text Texts and translations 1 Testimonies of the saints 2 Aporiae App Argument of Testimonies of the saints summarized
