Excerpt


These six lectures from St. Cyril of Jerusalem delivered in the 4th century serve as catechetical instructions to potential converts in a newly Christianized Roman state. The first lecture, the "procatechesis," functions as a welcome to new catechumens preparing for baptism and offers doctrinal instruction in association with this sacrament. The remaining five are then considered by St. Cyril as "mystagogical catecheses," which serve as an exposition of the rites of baptism, chrismation, and the Eucharist for the newly baptized. This edition of On the Christian Sacraments includes an noteworthy introduction to the person of St. Cyril of Jerusalem, along with his "procatechesis" in both Greek and English..
