MACARIUS OF JERUSALEM: LETTER TO THE ARMENIANS ( AD 355 )
This rediscovered early fourth century text (extant only in Armenian) is stunning experts in the field of liturgy and enriches all with its rare glimpse into the life of the early Christian Church. It describes baptismal and eucharistic rites in Jerusalem and predates the better known Catechetical Lectures of St. Cyril and the travel diary of Egeria. A precise translation of the letter is provided together with a fascinating introduction setting the background to it.
