Jacob of Serugh (451-521) is one of the great poets of the early Syriac tradition. His meditations focus us on the centrality of divine love as he understood it in the context of scripture. These reflections on the mysteries of salvation were prefaces to his homilies; as Sebastian Brock remarks in his Foreword, they ‘are beautiful little gems in their own right.’ In this book, Mary Hansbury presents a selection of the richest and most theologically profound of Jacob’s prayers. They introduce us to his warm pastoral concern for the spiritual and theological formation of the Christians in his care, which has remained lively and accessible down the ages.
