PREFACE. 

IN the summer of the year 1892 1 had the pleasure 
of showing to the Marquess of Bute, at the British Museum, 
a bilingual Coptic and Arabic manuscript containing three 
unpublished Encomiums upon Saint Michael the Archangel 
by Abba Theodosius, Archbishop of Alexandria, Severus 
of Antioch, and Eustathius, Bishop of Trake, respectively; 
this manuscript is the property of Lord Zouche, who was 
so kind as to allow me to take a complete copy of it 
so far back as 1885. Lord Bute enquired concerning 
the contents of the Encomiums, and regretted that these 
interesting documents were not accessible to the students 
of the earl\- history and literature of Egyptian Christianity, 
and subsequently he undertook to defray the expenses 
connected with the printing of the same. 

lo Lord Bute w r e already owe a work on the Coptic 
Liturgy,* and it is to his help that those who occupy 
themselves with the Christian literature of Egypt owe 
the appearance of this contribution to printed Coptic 
texts. 

There is no reason for doubting that the three 
Encomiums were written about the beginning of the 

: " The Coptic Morning Service /<>r t/ie Lord s /)<n , translated into 
English by John, Marquess of Bute, K. T., with the original Coptic 
of those parts said aloud, London, 1882. 



VII th century of our era, and in them we see some of 
the earliest specimens of this class of Coptic literature in 
existence. The most ardent lover of Coptic literature 
must confess that the lives of Coptic saints and the 
Encomiums upon them are generally too full of miracles 
and somewhat monotonous exhortations to the listener 
and reader, but the Encomiums now published for the 
first time are interesting" exceptions to the rule, for they 
contain narratives which are full of importance, not only 
for the philologist and antiquary, but also for the student 
of comparative folk-lore and demonology. To the Coptic 
texts are appended the complete narrative portions of 
tiie Arabic translation of the Encomiums, and the Ethiopic 
version of the Encomium upon Saint Michael by Severus 
of Antioch, edited from a venerable manuscript of the 
XV th century in the British Museum. 

The Encomium by Eustathius, Bishop of Trake, is of 
special interest, for it supplies details concerning the 

cZ> 

making of an CIKUJV of Saint Michael, and contains 

o 

an extract from the Coptic version of Physiologus, which 
we now know existed. To my friend Prof. I. Guidi of 
Rome I am indebted for valuable assistance in reading 
the proof sheets of the Arabic portion of the work. 

May 15. 1894.

INTRODUCTION. 



The manuscript from which the Coptic texts printed 
in this volume are taken is the property of Lord Zouche, 
and was brought from Cairo by Curzon, the famous 
author of Visits to Alonastcrics in tJie Levant, London, 
1849, some fifty years ago. It consists of 187 leaves 
of thick brownish -white paper, which now measure 
1 1 jj in. by 9^; the edges have been trimmed and gilded, 
and the book is bound in modern binding. On the 
inside of the front cover is written: - 

History of the wonders produced by the cabalistic 
"use of the name of the Archangel Michael. A very 

O J 

"early, and very fine Coptic Manuscript, with the Arabic 

"translation on the margin. It came from Cairo, and 

"is the finest Coptic manuscript on Paper I have seen." 

Whether this is Mr. Curzon s handwriting I am unable 

o 

to say. 

Each page is occupied by one column of 21 lines 
of Coptic text, and to the right is a narrower column 
of Arabic which forms a version of the Coptic text; 
the paragraphs are short, and each begins with a capital 
letter. Nearly every page of the manuscript is bespat 
tered with grease which fell from the candles, by the

lio-ht of which it was read in church on the twelfth 

o 

day of the month Athor. The quires are twenty-three 
in number, and are signed with letters on the top 
corners of the pages; twenty-one quires consist each 
of eight leaves, one of ten, and one of eleven. The 
page opposite to the first leaf inscribed with text is 
ornamented with a cross painted in gold, over which 
an intricate lace pattern in blue is traced, and bears 
upon it traces of inscriptions in red ink. The book is 
complete with the exception of a few lines of the title 
of the first Encomium therein, and a few lines at the 
end of the third or last Encomium; the titles of the 
Encomiums are written in red and black, and on fol. SSrf 
are some designs in gold and blue somewhat similar 
to those reproduced from the Xth century Coptic MS. 
(Borgia Collection, No. 108) by M. llyvernat in his 
splendid Album dc Paleographie Coptc, Paris, iSSS, 
pi. 13. The manuscript, when finished, was carefully 
read by some one who made a number of alterations 
and corrections in the text (see foil. 14^, 31 /A 43*?, 4<Stf, 
50^, 51^, 59, 149^ &c.), who occasionally added variant 
readings (see fol. 69^), and who added in the margins 
words which the scribe had omitted. 

Bound up with the manuscript, at the end, is a leal 
which belongs to another book which seems to have 

o 

been written about the same period, and by the same 
scribe.

it lies due west of the Christian cemeteries and "mounds of 
rubbish" which are found to the south of the modern city of 
Cairo. Following a course more north than east, it runs through 
the entire city, and an authority quoted by Yakut says that it 
formerly extended as far as the Gulf of Suez (jsv ^M J~J! ^

I. THE ENCOMIUM OF THEODOSIUS. 1 

After a declaration of his absolute reliance upon 
God, "Who openeth the door of speech of every man," 
and Christ and Saint Michael, Theodosius begs his hear 
ers to assist him in undertaking to write an Encomium 
upon Saint Michael. He likens himself to an unskilled 
sailor who, having stored his all in a frail bark, intends 
to set out to sail over the great ocean, but his boat is 
not strong enough to withstand the bufferings of the 

*^> o 

waves, his merchandise is of little or no value, and 
is not worth committing to the care of the merchants 
who sail in great ships; he fears to leave the har 
bour wherein lies his little craft, lest, having launched 
out into the deep, and being ignorant of the mariner s 
art, his boat be swamped, and he lose not only his 
boat and its load, but also his life. He next ex 
plains that the boat is his own flesh, which he cannot 
govern, and that the sailor is his ignorant heart, and 
that the Holy Scriptures are the knowledge of celestial 
seamanship ; nevertheless as his hearers insist upon his 
doing so he will attempt to speak concerning the in 
corporeal and luminous commander of the hosts of 
heaven, the advocate of man before God, Saint Michael 
the Archangel. Referring to other encomiums 2 which

he had written upon the season of the new year, and 
upon the festivals, and upon Saint John the Baptist, he 
declares his intention of speaking once again on the 
occasion of the festival of Saint Michael. 

According to Theodosius Michael is, after Christ, 
the chief of those who feast in the Palace of the heavenly 
kingdom, and there he sits surrounded by Adam, Seth, 
Enoch, Methuselah, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, 
Moses, Aaron, Joshua, Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, 
David, Solomon, Kzekiel, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ananias, 
Azarias, Misael, Klijah, Elisha, John the Baptist, the 
Twelve Apostles, and the armies of the saints and mar 
tyrs; in the same place are the Angels, Archangels, 
Cherubim, Seraphim, Thrones, Divinities, and Powers. 
The feast is made ready, and Theodosius, croino- to 

J - o o 

each of the Patriarchs, Prophets, and Apostles, asks him 
if he doth not rejoice on the day of the festival of 
Michael; each of these calls to remembrance some tri 
bulation from which he was delivered by the Archangel 
Michael, and declares the joy with which he celebrates 
the festival. Michael entreated God to forgive Adam, 

o 

he carried Abel s sacrifice up to God, he nourished Seth 
when his mother s milk failed, he took Methuselah s 
prayers up to God, he guided Noah s ark, together 
with Gabriel he ate with Abraham under the tree of 
Mamre, he took the knife from Abraham s hand when 
he was about to slay Isaac, 1 he fixed Jacob s

Egypt, he led the Israelites 1 under Moses 2 and Aaron 
unto the promised land, he helped (iideon to war

1 Michael is essentially the angel of the Jews, who derive his 
name, ^N3 , from ^>3 + ^ in the passages DV^frO rD13 ^ 
(Exodus xv. ii) and ]nty ^N3 pK (Deuteronomy xxxiii. 26). 
He is one of the four angels (Michael, Gabriel, Uriel and Raphael) 
who stand round God s throne, and his position is at His right 
hand; he is God s banner-bearer. The seventy nations of the 
world have each a prince like Michael, and these princes are 
their gods; but Michael acts only under the orders and direc 
tion of DYi^K, Who taketh care for Israel. Michael is often 
associated with Gabriel, and together with him set fire to the 
Temple in Jerusalem; he is the prince of the Jews, and the "gover 
nor of Jerusalem," and at the coming of the Messiah it is he who 
will blow the trumpet. Sec Daniel x. 13, 21; xii. i; Buxtorf 
(ctf. Fisher), p. 609; and Eisenmcnger, Entdccktes Judenthum, 
Bd. i. pp. 850-853; ii. pp. 383, 713. 

2 Michael is said to have been the teacher of Moses, and 
7S^ tiit also was his teacher; now by taking the numerical values 
of the letters forming these names we have: 

^Wfi = 40+ 10+20+ i +30 = 101 

hxyiM = 30+1+3 + 7 + 50 + 3 + 7 == ioi 

See Eisenmenger, Entdccktes Judenthum, Bd. i. p. 858; ii. 375. 

3 On the day when Solomon married Pharaoh s daughter, 
Michael the great prince came down from heaven and set a 
great reed in the sea; round about this reed a forest sprang up, 
and on this spot was the city of Rome built. See Eisenmenger,

affliction, he shut the lions mouths for Daniel, he rolled 
the stone from the sepulchre wherein Christ had lain, 
he cooled the furnace for the Three Children, and he 
strengthened every saint and martyr to endure afflic 
tion and torture. To this great Archangel Theodosius 
exhorts his hearers to make offerings, and these he will 
present unto God, and deliver the donors thereof from 
everlasting punishment. Whatsoever a man giveth 
unto Michael will be returned unto him two-fold in this 
world, and God will shew mercy unto him in His king 
dom. That his hearers may have no doubt about the 
ready help of Michael, Theodosius narrates what he 
did for the pious Dorntheos, and his wife Theopisthe, 
in a time of great trouble and affliction. 

Dorotheos and Theopisthe lived in the city of Se- 
nahor, 1 where they possessed much land, and flocks and 
herds, and great wealth; they were devout Christians, 

<^> * 

and loved the Archangel Michael, and on the eleventh 
day of each month they sent large gifts and wine to 
his church, that his festival might be celebrated on the 
morrow with due pomp and reverence. After they had 
visited the church on the day of the festival, it was 
their custom to entertain the poor, and the maimed, 
and the halt, and the blind, and the destitute, and to 
feed them with food and wine, and this they did until 
their name spread throughout the whole land of Kgypt. 
After a time it fell out that no rain came upon the

earth, and that for three years in succession the waters 
of the Nile did not rise to their usual height; many 
people died, and the cattle perished of thirst. During 
two of these years Dorotheos and his wife continued to 
give alms and oblations as usual, but when the third 
drew nigh they found that all their cattle were dead, with 
the exception of a single sheep; moreover, all their stores 
had come to an end, and they had no wearing apparel 
left except the dress in which they were wont to celebrate 
the Sacrament. Having sacrificed their last sheep on 
the eleventh day of Paopi (? . e., October 8), they had 
nothing left wherewith to celebrate the annual festival of 
Saint Michael which took place on the twelfth day of 
Athor (? . c., November 8), and in these straits Dorotheos 
determined to sell his own and his wife s apparel that 
he might obtain the wherewithal to buy a sheep. He 
exchanged his own festal garments for corn, but the 
shepherd to whom he went refused to give him a 
sheep of the value of one third of a dinar - in exchange 
for Theopisthe s silken dress, on the ground that no 
one in his house wore anything but woollen garments. 
When Dorotheos had left him and was walkino- alono- 

o o 

the road sadly, he met a general riding upon a white 
horse, and accompanied by soldiers, who asked him 
why he was thus carrying his wife s garments; he ex 
plained to him that a great man had come to visit 
him, and that he had no money to buy a sheep to 
slay in his honour, and that he was zo mz to sell his 

o O 

wife s garments to buy one. The general, who was, of

course, Michael, promised to obtain a sheep for him if he 
would receive him and his company into his house, 
and Dorotheos having gladly undertaken to do this, 
the general sent a soldier to the shepherd for a sheep 
of the value of a third of a dinar. Next the general sent 
a soldier to the fish market for a fish, also of the value 
of a third of a dinar, and when he had brought it, the 
company moved on to the house of Uorotheos. Having 
arrived at the door the general knocked and was ad 
mitted by Theopisthe, who bade him welcome on Saint 
Michael s day, and who looked upon the sheep and the 
fish in glad surprise ; the general gave orders that the 
sheep should be killed, but commanded them not to touch 
the fish until he had himself done what he wished with it. 
The happy husband and wife made ready cushions where 
on the o-eneral W as to recline, they had the sheep killed, 

o 

and did all in their power to make their house fit to 
receive the general, who they thought to be a local 
governor. Now when Dorotheos went into the wine- 
cellar to bring out what little wine was left, he found 
it filled with vessels of wine up to the very door; and 
when he went to the place where the oil was kept for 
food and anointing purposes, he found there seven 
jars filled with oil to the very brim, and other vessels 
which contained butter, cheese, vinegar, and every 
other household necessary. And when he and his 
wife had gone into their bed-chamber they found a 
chest filled with richer and more goodly raiment than 
that which they had worn at their wedding. Out of 
their newly gotten abundance they prepared a great 
feast, and laid the tables for the brethren, they arrayed

themselves in rich apparel, and went into the church 
of the Archangel Michael, and partook of the Mysteries, 

O J 

and knelt down before the image of the saint, and 
offered up prayer and thanksgiving for the great thing 
which had been done for them. 

Soon after they had returned to their house the 
general and his soldiers arrived, and when he had 
taken his seat, he asked for the lish, and told Dorotheos 
to open it; when this had been done he took out the 
maw, which was very large, and found therein a bundle 
sealed with seals. The general took the bundle, and 
opened it, found it full of gold money, and when it 
had been counted there were found to be three hundred 
golden dandnir and three small pieces each of the 
value of a third of a dinar ; these he gave to Doro 
theos and told him to give one third of a dinar to 
the shepherd, another to the fishmonger, and another 
to the man from whom he had obtained corn in ex 
change for his own garments, and to keep the three 
hundred dandmr as an earnest of what should yet be 
given unto them. When Dorotheos protested against 
receiving all this o-reat gift, the general shewed him 

O O O 

who he was, and told them that all the gifts which 
they had made unto the Archangel Michael had been 
made unto himself, for he himself was Michael. What

II. THE ENCOMIUM 1 OF SEVERU8, PATRIARCH OF 
ANTIOCH. 2 

This Encomium was pronounced on the day of the 
festival of Saint Michael, which happened to fall upon 
a Sunday. After a series of ([notations from the Psalms 
and Saint Matthew s Gospel, Severus proceeds to tell 
the story of Ketson the merchant, and of his conver 
sion from Paganism to Christianity. Ketson was a native 
of hntike, and was a very rich merchant, \vho on one 
occasion loaded a ship with his wares and sailed to 
Kalonia; he arrived on the first day of Athor, and stayed 
there and sold his merchandise. On the eleventh clay 
of Athor lie saw men draping the shrine of Saint Michael 
with cloth, and crowning- it with lanterns, and he tarried 
there to see what would be the end of the matter; in the 
evening men lit the lamps and sang hymns, and Ketson 
determined to pass the night by the door of the shrine to

see what would take place therein. When the night had 
come the clergy and the congregation performed tlie 
service, and in the morning Ketson set out to visit two 
Christians of his acquaintance, and to ask them the 
meaning of what he had seen. When he had heard 
from them of Saint Michael s power, he asked them 
where he could find him, for he wished to ask him to 
deliver him from evil, but they told him that he could 
only see Michael when he had become a Christian; 
Ketson promised to give each of them money 1 if they 
would help him to become a Christian, and they agreed 
to take him to the Bishop to be baptized. On the 
morrow the three men went to the Bishop, who asked 
the stranger whence he came, what god he worshipped, 
and if he had a wife and family; and when he learned 
that Ketson had a wife and family in his native town, 
he sent him away to persuade his wife to become a 
Christian, lest, being baptized without her knowledge, 
she should cause him to apostatize. During the return 
of Ketson by sea to his native city the Devil raised 
up a mighty storm which well-nigh swamped the ship, 
but when he had cried out to Christ, the winds sank 
to rest, and the waves went down, and he arrived at 
home in safety ; his wife decided to become a Christian 
without any hesitation, and having made all ready the) 
set out for Kalonia. And when they had returned to

the Bishop lie baptized Ketson, and his wife, and their 
four sons, giving them the names of Matthew, Irene, 
John, Stephen, Joseph and Daniel. Ketson tarried in 
Kalonia for one whole month to be instructed in the 
things of his new religion, and he gave six hundred 
mathakil 1 to the shrine of the Archanq-el.

Soon after Matthew, who was formerly called 
Ketson, had returned to his city, he died, and his 
fellow citizens began to persecute his widow and sons, 
probably because they had changed their religion, and 
they went so (ar as to plunder their storehouse. By 
the advice of John, the eldest son, the whole family 
went and lived in the royal city", but scarcely had 
the)- taken up their abode there when the house of a 
nobleman called Sylon was broken into and plundered, 
and the Devil, who had taken upon himself the form 
of a man, went about throughout the city accusing 
Matthew s sons of having committed the robbery, and 
the voiinir men were dragged before Kesanthos the 

/ o o o 

governor to answer for the crime. While the exami 
nation was taking place Michael, in the form of a 
patrician, came and sat clown by the governor, and 
suofQfested that Matthew s vounirest son should cro to

house of the chief watchman, and command the stolen 
things to appear in the name of Jesus Christ; when 
this had been done a voice bade them go into the 
cellar, and having done so the)- found all Sylon s pro 
perty hidden therein. 

Shortly afterwards a certain man invited some

friends to a feast in his house one evening, and as 
one of them was returning home, a scorpion stung 
him, and he fell down and died immediately. The 
watchmen of the city found the body, and seeing no 
traces of violence upon it, they buried it in the mor 
ning. And again the Devil, who took upon himself 
the form of a man, went about the city accusing the 
four young men of the murder, and they were brought 
into the governor s presence with their hands tied be 
hind them, and with heavy chains upon their necks. 
Once more Michael appeared in the form of a nobleman, 
and having heard the accusation which had been brought 
against the young men, he suggested that the dead 
man himself should be brought into the court, and 
asked to say who or what had killed him; when this 
had been done Michael commanded Daniel, the youngest 
son of Matthew, to adjure the dead man in the name 
of Christ to say what had happened unto him, and he 
stated straightway that the bite of a scorpion had 
killed him. After this Michael went up into heaven with 
great glory, taking the soul of the dead man with him. 
By the advice of John, Kesanthos the governor 
wrote to the Emperor Constantine, 1 and informed him 
of the wonderful thing which had happened, and asked 
him to send to his city a Bishop who should enlighten 
his town with the true faith; when the Emperor heard 
this he wrote to John, 2 Archbishop of Ephesus, and

not born until A. D. 516, but it is equally clear that John of

asked him to go and baptize the people of the city 
of Entias. Shortly after, John set out with two deacons, 
an elder, a reader, three singers of Psalms, and twelve 
other men, and they took with them an altar, altar 
coverings, sacramental vessels, books, and everything 
that was necessarv for the founding of a church. On

the} began to build a church to the Virgin Mary, and 
by the help of every man in the city it was finished 
in sixteen days; the baptism of the people by the 
Archbishop next took place in a pool of water situated 
to the east of the city, and John, the son of Matthew, 
was consecrated bishop over them. A few days later 
the new bishop suggested to Kesanthos the governor 
that they should build a church in honour . of Saint 
Michael, and after eight months the coping stone was 
put on, and the building was consecrated to Saint Michael 
on the twelfth day of Athor. After the bishop and 
the governor had taken part in the Communion they 
went into the city with the multitude, and set fire to 
the temple of Zeus, and a large church dedicated to the 
Apostles was afterwards built upon the spot where the 
pagan edifice had stood. These things were duly reported

The third and last Encomium on Saint Michael 1>\ 
Kustathius is perhaps the most interesting in the book. 
It was composed for recitation on the Archangel s festival, 
which took place on the twelfth day of Paoni (z. <?., June 6), 
and in it Eustathius sets forth the history of the noble 
lady Euphemia, the wife of Aristarchus, a general in 
the service of the Emperor I lonorius, by whom he had 

1 A French version of this Encomium, translated from another 
MS. 1 believe, is published by M. Amelineau in his Contcs et 
komans de L Egyptc Chri ticnne, torn. i. p. 21 ff. 

; The name is given as Anastasius by M. Amelineau, but 
in any case I am unable to identify the bishop to whom this 
Encomium is attributed. 

3 I have translated the word NHCOC by "island", but it is 
not by any means clear that Trake was an island in the or 
dinary sense of the word. In the Coptic text (see infra p. 14, 
1. 25) Jacob says Al(|)a)T OJA TNHCOC "I fled to the Island", 
and NHCOC here is the exact translation of *#&, "Island", an 
Arabic name for Mesopotamia, that is the land between the 
two rivers, or the land entirely surrounded by the Tigris and 
Euphrates. As our author says that Trake was "the Island to 
which the Empress [Eudoxia] banished Saint John Chrysostom", 
and as this famous man was banished first to Cucusus, a village 
in the mountains on the borders of Cilicia and the Lesser 
Armenia, secondly to Arabissus, about sixty miles from Cucusus, 
and ^ thirdly to Pityus , at the foot of the Caucasus, on the 
N. E. of the Black Sea, we must assume that this district re 
presents the island of Trake referred to by Eustathius. 
M. Amelineau translates "1 ile de Turquie", and adds the per 
tinent remark, "Les Coptes n ont jamais eu de notions bien 
precises en fait de geographic" (op. cit., p. 21).

been appointed governor of Trake. He was a Christian, 
and had received baptism at the hands of Saint John 
Chrysostom, 1 and for many years he made gifts and 
offerings on the twelfth, twenty-first, and twenty-ninth 
days of every month, on the festivals of Saint Michael, 
of the Virgin Mary, 2 and of the birthday of our Lord 3 
respectively; finally he was seized with mortal sickness, 
and knowino; that his death was niirh, he called Euphemia

his wife to him, and charged her to neglect in no way 
the "offering of the holy Archangel Michael", and to 
continue to do alms, and to make the customary gifts 
to the church after his death; the pious lady promised 
not only to make the customary gifts, but to increase 
them. She then begged her husband before his death 
to instruct a painter to paint a picture of the Archangel 
Michael upon a wooden tablet, that she might hang it 
in her bed-chamber to induce the saint to protect her, 
and to be her guardian after the death of Aristarchus. 
The dying man straightway sent for a cunning painter, 
and told him to paint upon a wooden tablet the figure; 
of the Archangel, and to cover it with a plate of line 
gold inlaid with precious stones; when this was done 
and brought to him, he gave it to Euphemia, who re 
joiced over it with great joy. Aristarchus marvelled 
when he saw his wife s gladness, but being touched 
by the mournful words with which she described the

widow s lonely condition, he took her hand and laid it 
upon that of the figure of the Archangel, and, in a 
solemn address to the Saint, committed his wife to his 
care; Euphemia was comforted by this act of her hus 
band, and she believed that no wiles of the Devil could 
prevail over her. Aristarchus died shortly afterwards, 
and his pious widow continued to give the gifts which 
her husband was wont to give, and added thereunto. 
Meanwhile, however, the envy of the Devil was 
stirred up, and taking upon himself the form of a nun, 
he went to Euphemia s house accompanied by devils, 
also in the forms of nuns, and having gained admittance 
to her presence, he began to tempt her to promise to 
marry Hilarichus, the chief prefect in the service of 
the Emperor Honorius, 7 whose wife had recently died; 
the Devil shewed her many gold and silver ornaments 
to persuade her, and at length Euphemia told him 
that she would marry a second time without hesitation 
provided that her guardian gave her the permission 
to do so. The Devil asked who the guardian was, 
and thinking that it must necessarily be a man, be^an

to charge her with infidelity and deceit, until finally, 
at the Devil s request, she agreed to shew him who 
her guardian was, on the condition that the Devil 
should turn to the east, and pray to God to be for 
given for the evil thoughts which he had harboured 
,^> & 

concerning herself. This the Devil refused to do, and 

O 

excused himself by saying that he had vowed to pray 
nowhere except in his own cell, and when Euphemia

gained the better of him in the argument which followed 
upon this statement, he threatened to do violence unto 
her; and when, seeing that he changed his form and 

O O 

appearance frequently, she cried out for help to Saint 
Michael, and made the sign of the Cross over herself, 
the Devil and all his works disappeared "like a 
spider s web". 

And the Devil appeared a second time to her in 
the form of an Ethiopian, with the head of a goat, and 
with bloody eyes, and his hair stood up like the bristles 
on a mountain pig; he carried a sharp two-edged, 
drawn sword in his hands, and at the siq-ht of him

Euphemia fled for help to the tablet with the Archangel s 
likeness upon it. When the Devil saw this he was 
afraid to enter the bed-chamber, and standing outside 
lie began to curse the wooden tablet which Kuphcmia 
had in her hands. Calling to remembrance, one after 
another, his evil deeds in days of old, and admitting 
that this piece of wood has baffled his wiles, even as 
the wood of the Cross baffled him before, he threatens 
that he will come again to Kuphemia on a twelfth day 
of Paoni (i. e., June 6), for on that da)- Michael will be 
kneeling in prayer before God, and entreating Him to 
make the Nile to rise to its proper height during the 
inundation, 1 and to make the rain and dew to fall, and 

1 This is interesting as shewing how completely the attri 
butes of l.Iapi, the old Egyptian god of the Nile, had been 
transferred by the Copts to a Jewish Archangel; in Eisenmcngcr 
(Entdecktes Jndenthum, ii. p. 379) a passage is quoted wherein 
Michael is said to be the prince of the waters, under whom 
are seven princes.

as he must continue in prayer ceaselessly for three 
whole days and nights, it will be impossible for him 
to come to help her; and the Devil threatens that when 
he comes, he will break the wooden tablet in pieces 
over her head. When Euphemia ran towards him 
holding the tablet he disappeared. 

When the next twelfth day of Paoni had come, at 
the first hour of the day, the Devil appeared to 
Euphemia in the form of the Archangel Michael; on 
his head was a crown set with pearls of great price, 
a girdle of gold inlaid with precious stones encircled 
his loins, in his hand was a golden sceptre, but it 
lacked the figure of the Hoi} Cross, arid he was pro 
vided with wings. 1 After speaking to her words of 
comfort he told her that he had been sent to her by 
God to say that her husband had already inherited the 
good things of the kingdom, and to advise her to 
desist from squandering all her wealth in giving gifts 
to the poor. Me shewed her what evils the I )evil had 
brought upon Job because of his envy of him, and how 
he had blinded Tobit by devils who had taken the form 
of birds, and he then advised her in the name of God 
to marry Hilarichus, that she misjht bear him a son to 

J o> 

inherit all her possessions after her death. Perceiving 
at once that her visitor was the Devil himself, she 
challenged him to shew her any passage in the Scrip 
tures which directed her to cease from cloincr alms and

deeds of charity, and to marry a second time; in support 
of the quotations which she makes from the Bible and 
of her arguments in favour of the life which she was 
then leading, she appeals to the testimony of the book 
Physiologus wherein it is said: "When the first 

mate of the turtle-dove dieth, it doth not dwelt with 
"a second mate, but it departeth unto the wilderness, 
"where it hideth itself until the day of its death. 1 And 
"he also sheweth us that the raven family doth not

although it is difficult to say where the quotations from 
Physiologus end, or whether, in the Coptic version, 
the statements about the turtle-dove and raven formed 
one chapter or section or not, this part of Euphemia s 
speech to the Devil is of peculiar value, for it shews

stat ment is made to apply to the turtle-dove, IKi-osa*; see Land,

In the French version by M. Amelineau it is said, "Le 
sage Salomon dit quc la tourtcrcllc et les corneilles ne prennent

we have above. 



XXXIV INTRODUCTION, 



that a version of Physiologus had been made in Coptic 
at an early period; in no other version, however, 
which I have been able to consult could I find any 
reference whatever to the female raven slitting her 
tongue with her claws. 

o 

When Euphemia had declared her intention of 
continuing to do acts of charity and of not marrying 
a second time, the Devil, who was in the form of 
Michael, artfully reminded her that he had promised 
to come to her on a twelfth day of Paoni, and went 
on to say that God had sent him unto her to protect 
her until sunset, and tried to persuade her that it was 
he who had cast Satan forth from heaven. Then Eu 
phemia asked him where was the figure of the Holy 
Cross which should be upon his sceptre, and referred 
to the picture of the Archangel which was painted on 
the tablet; the Devil answered that painters decorated 
their pictures with such things wishing to glorify their 
art, but that lie and his angels had not the figure of 
the Cross with them. To this Euphemia made answer 
that all persons and letters coming from the Emperor 
bear his tokens and seal, and that similarly the angels 
which bear not the figure of the Cross must be devils 
in the form of angels, and that if he wished her to 
believe that he is Michael, he must salute the picture 
of the Archangel which she will bring to him. As she 
rose up to bring the tablet, the Devil changed his form 
into that of a raging, roaring lion, and he laid hold of 
her by the neckband strangled her until she was well 
nigh dead, but with the little strength which remained 
Euphemia cried out to Michael, who straightway ap-

pearcd in all his glory, and chastised the Devil, and 
drove him away in disgrace. This done, he spake 
comforting words to her, and told her that when she 
had performed that day the service which she was \\ont 
to do in his name, he would come with his angels and 

o 

take her up into the rest of God, and giving- her the 
salutation of peace he went up into heaven. 

After the departure of the Archangel Euphemia 
went to the Bishop of the city, Abba Anthimus, who was 
the first-fruits of the ministry of Saint John Chrysostom, 
and when she had told him what had happened, he 
quickly administered the Sacrament unto her, and after 
she had ministered unto the poor brethren in her own 
house, she sent and begged Bishop Anthimus to come 
to her. When he had come with his priests (of whom 
Eustathius the writer of this Encomium was one) and 
deacons, the pious lady opened the doors of her house, 
and gave every thing to the Bishop for distribution 
among the poor, and sinking down upon her bed she 
entreated him to pray for her. After a time she re 
vived sufficiently to ask that the tablet upon which the 
figure of the Archangel w r as painted might be brought 
to her to kiss before she died, and when it was brought 
she kissed it and entreated Michael to be with her in 
that terrible hour; then suddenly there was a sound 
like the roaring of a cataract, and all present in the 
chamber saw the Archangel appear in great glory, 
and take the soul of Euphemia and lay it in his shining- 
apparel, and bear it up to heaven, while the sound of 
a multitude was heard singing, "God knoweth the way 
of the righteous, and their inheritance shall abide for ever." 



XXX VI INTRODUCTION. 



Now the picture which had been lying on Euphemia s 
face when she died had disappeared in a mysterious 
manner, and none knew where it had gone, but when 
they had buried her and had come into the church to 
celebrate the Sacrament, it was seen to be hanging in 

O T? 

air in the apse without an) support whatever, and it 
was as firm as a pillar of adamant". The news of 
this miracle reached Constantinople in due course, and 
the Emperors Arcadius 1 and Honorius, 2 and the Empress 
Eudoxia, 3 came to the Island of Trake and saw the 
miracle, and bowed in prayer at the couch whereon 
Saint John Chrysostorn had died; any sick person who 
lay upon that couch straightway rose up healed. After 
the death of Euphemia, the olive wood tablet upon 
which the figure of the archangel Michael was painted, 
on the twelfth day of each month, which is the day 
of the Archangel, put forth olive leaves at each of its 
four corners together with "fine, fresh fruit", and a 
number of cures and healings were performed there 
by. After a few laudatory words of Saint John Chry- 
sostom and some deprecatory observations concerning 
his own ability, Eustathius brings his Encomium to a close. 
In his Contcs et Romans de. LJlgyptc Chretienne, 
M. Amelineau gives versions of t\vo stories which, like 

o 

the above Encomium of Eustathius, were to be read 
on the twelfth day of Paoni. In the first of these the

can hardly have been the Empress, because she died about the 
year 604, while Chrysostom did not die until 607.

causes of the conversion of Aristarchus from paganism 
to Christianity are given, and in the second we have 
the account of the temptation of Eusebius, a man who 
subsequently became a monk in the Scete desert, by 
the beautiful wife of a merchant his close friend; in 
both of these occur some interesting and remarkable 
instances of the belief in the almighty power which 
Michael the Archangel was thought to possess.

SAINT MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL. 



p. 2 I find the source of my discourse in Him 
Who comforteth and strengthened! me in all things, Who 
knoweth all the earth, Who trieth the reins, Who open- 
eth the door of speech of every man, and Who searcheth 
out things diligently. 

Who is this? 

It is the Word of God, Whose Body I break in my 
hands, and Whose glorious Blood I pour out into the cup 
and give to those who believe upon Him. It is my Lord 
and God, Jesus Christ, the Saviour of all, Who speaketh 
with I lis truth-speaking mouth, Who careth for all man 
kind, and Who is filled with mercy and grace towards 
the image of God. 1 

Who is this? 

It is Michael, the holy Archangel, the commander of 
the hosts of heaven. 

No\v, I beseech you, O my beloved and dear children 
of the Word, to assist me in this great undertaking, lest, 
having put out on this great and boundless sea, I be un 
able to bring my little bark to shore. For ye all know 
of my poverty, and ye know that I have no merchan 
dise wherewith to load a great ship, which could sail 
across the sea, and be strong enough] to resist the 
buffetinors of the winds. Moreover, the sailor is feeble, 

o 

and my boat is a little one, and [I am afraid] that if I 



put out to sea p. 3 



from this harbour in which there is 



no clanger to go into another, the winds will raise up 
waves and tempests against me on the sea; and I know 
not how to sail a ship even to save my own life [and to 
bring myself] to the shore. Doth any one then say, 

1 The allusion is to Genesis i. 27. 



THE ENCOMIUM OF THEODOSIUS. 3* 

"This man hath found favour [with God , and is delivered: 1 " 
For the soul of man is to Him more precious than the 
whole world filled with gold and silver, and I am there 
fore afraid to cast away my own soul. I know well that 
my bark is frail, and that my merchandise is without 
value, and that I have no knowledge of the craft of the 
mariner, and I am afraid | to launch out into the deep, 
lest having once put out to sea I should never return 
again in peace. And although I might endure the perils 
of the sea and the tempests thereof, I could not bear 
the scorn of those who would make a mock of me, and 
say, "O thou fool, who made thee to undertake that 
"which was more than thy strength could bear? Thou 
"didst know full well that thou wast feeble and that thou 
"hadst nothing in thy power wherewith to do that which 
"is beyond thy strength. And besides, merchants are 
"many, why then didst thou not sell thy few wares to 
"them and let them trade therewith? Thus wouldest thou 
"have gained thy profit therefrom, and thus wouldest 
"thou have saved thyself, and thy merchandise entirely, 
"and thy boat, and that which belongeth to thee for thou 
"hadst no knowledge of the craft of the mariner." 

And now, my brethren, I will show unto you of what 
kind is my boat and who is the sailor. |p. 4 My boat is my 
sinful flesh, which I am not able to govern rightly, and the 
sailor is my own heart, in which there is neither understand 
ing nor the knowledge of celestial seamanship. Now celestial 
seamanship is the Holy Scriptures which I understand not, 
and for this reason ye may [truly tell me this da)- that I 
am attempting to do that which is beyond my strength, 
especially as ye compel me to speak concerning the glory 
of one who is not of the earth like ourselves but of

heaven, and of the matters concerning his God. He is 
not a being of flesh, but he is incorporeal and is a 
creature of lio-ht. He is not a beinir made with clay, but 

O O / 

is of the Holy Ghost. He is not of those servants of 
earth, but is a minister, a flame of fire. He is not a 
governor of this earth, but an archangel of the hosts of 
heaven. 1 le is not a general of this earth whose king 
can dismiss him whenever he pleaseth, but he is a com 
mander of the forces of heaven, and, together with his King, 
endureth for ever. He never uttereth the word for the 
destruction of souls, but he is at all times an ambassa 
dor before God our Creator for the salvation of our 
souls and bodies. He maketh accusations against no 
man, but is careful for all. I le hateth not mankind, but 
loveth every image of God. He is not our adversary, 
but is at peace with every man. [p. 5 He is not un 
merciful, but a compassionate being in whom abideth 
the lon[r-sufferinor o f God. Whosoever asketh from him] 

O <:> -I 

receiveth; whosoever seeketh iindeth ; and whosoever 
knocketh it shall be opened unto him. 1 And I myself, 
having seen that my God doth give, will joyfully stretch 
out my hands to I lim this da)" unhesitatingly, and I will 
ask that I may receive abundantly, and will knock that 
it may be opened unto me. 

But perhaps thou wilt say, O man. filled with virtue 
and loving understanding, "What is this that thou seek- 

O O 

"est this day at His hand, seeing that] thou hast already 
"begun to speak? Thou hast already pronounced en- 
"comiums at the season of the new year and at the 
of all the festivals of God, and thou hast

"likewise made a discourse upon him than whom of those 
"who have been born of women 1 none greater hath arisen, 
"[I mean the kinsman of Christ, Saint John the Baptist, 
"the friend of the holy Bridegroom. Moreover, knowest 
"thou not, O my father, that moderation in all things is 
"good? As thou art moderate in thy eating, and drinking, 
"and praying, even so shoulclst thou be moderate in all 
"things, as Paul, the greatest of the Apostles, saith, The 
"training of God is great gain, and if thou canst bear it 
"thou shalt be perfect. " And I will answer thcc and say 
unto thee, "Beloved, thou sayest rightly, and in showing 
"solicitude for me thou doest well], but nevertheless I 
"will behold, and will speak unto God as did Abraham, 
"the friend of God and the chief of the patriarchs, who 
became the father of a multitude of nations, saying, |p. 6] 
" Let me speak, O Lord, with my God even this once 
"also" , even although I should make myself like unto the 
"friend of God in speaking this once. And if I dared to 
"speak even unto three times He would not turn away 
"from me, for He is One God and One Lord, and to 
"Him belongeth the mercy which abideth for ever. With 
"this too will I convince you, that it is God Who hath 
"commanded us to ask that we may receive 3 . And why 
"did ye entreat me to come into your midst on this 
"great festival, which hath spread abroad not only over 
"all the earth but likewise in heaven, and why [if ye did 
"not wish me to speak | did ye, little and great, men and 
"women, cry out to me, saying, We beseech thee not 
"to keep silent concerning this great visitation, but show

"us concerning the great festival, and concerning the glory 
"of him whom we celebrate in it, who is an ambassador 
"to God for us all. " 

Who are the nobles of the palace except Christ and 
the captain of all His hosts, the holy Michael? More 
over, let us ourselves follow after them, each following 

> 

the other in fitting order, C) my beloved, for humility 
exalteth and leadeth aright; come now then, and follow 
me, for the nobles of the palace have already gone into 
the feast of the holy Archangel Michael, and have sat 
down to meat. 

\\ ho are these nobles who have sat down to meat 
with the Archangel Michael? p. 7] 

Hearken unto me, and I will show you. [They are 
Adam, Seth, Enoch, Methuselah, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, 
Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Aaron, Joshua, Gideon, Barak, 
Samson, Jephthah, David, Solomon, Ezekiel, Isaiah, Jere 
miah, Ananias, Azarias, Misael, Elijah, Klisha, and the rest 
of the prophets, Zachariah the priest, John the Baptist, 
and the Twelve Apostles, the holy Stephen, the old 
man Simeon the holy priest, the army of the saints, and 
the army of the righteous. But what profit have I in 
speaking of earthly beings only? for in that place is the 
God of glory with all the host of heaven, Angels, Arch 
angels, Cherubim, Seraphim, Thrones, Divinities and 
Powers, and they all ascribe glory to God and to Mi 
chael the great and holy Archangel, whom He hath made 
ruler over them all. And now I wish to return to the 
feast-chamber of the holy and mighty Archangel Michael 
to ask the great ones of this earth in what manner they 
keep with us this great and hoi) festival this day, and 
if they [keep it] with rejoicings, that I may "rejoice with 



THE ENCOMIUM OF TIIEODOSIUS. 7* 

them that rejoice", according to the words of the 
Apostle. 1 Briefly, I will begin with the father of all 
mankind whom God hath created in His own image and 
likeness, p. 8] and I will ask my lord and father Adam, 
for he it is whom I have seen to be the chief of the 
feast. And although I am terrified and afraid because I 
see the whole company of those who are rejoicing with 
him at the feast this day, and paying honour unto him, 
still I will ask him, and I will mingle in their midst. And 
although I be a sinner yet will I salute him in the joy 
of my heart, saying, "Hail, my lord, holy father! Hail, 
"father of all fatherhood! Hail, father of all our human 
"race, both of those who have lived and of those who 
"shall yet come into existence!" And when I shall have 
given to him this threefold salutation, he will perforce 
call me as a father calls his son, saying, "Come, O my 
"son, and keep with us this great festival which we 
"celebrate this day"; thus shall I find freedom of speech 
before that being whose name is never proclaimed to 
his King [before his entering to Him , but he goeth into 
His presence without advocate or mediator to proclaim 
his name. 

This being is not the ruler of one company only, but 
he is over all the hosts of heaven, and over everything 
according to the command of God; he standeth not at 
the left but at the right hand of God, and entreateth 
Him at all times on behalf of the race of men. 

Who then is this that is clothed with such irreat honour 

o 

and glory? 

Hearken, it is Michael the mighty Archangel of the 
hosts of heaven. 

: Romans xii. 15. 



SAINT MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL. 

Who is this whose festival all ranks of beings ce 
lebrate ? 

[p. 9] It is Michael the ruler of the kingdom of heaven. 

Who is this being- whom the King hath made to 
bear such a mighty sceptre, who is filled with majestic 
glory, who is robed with rich raiment, and who is girt 
about with a golden girdle set with precious stones, the 
like of which existeth not? 

It is Michael the mighty and exalted Archangel. 

Who is this in whom the angels and the armies of 
the heavens have hope, and whose festival they celebrate 
with him this day? 

It is Michael, whom God hath appointed to be ruler 
over all I lis kingdom. 

\\ho is this who giveth |his| commands to all the 
armies of heaven, and they obey him? 

It is Michael the Archangel, who was obedient to the 
command of God, and who cast out from Him the evil 
slanderer and rebel. 

Who is this, for whose sake all handicraftsmen in the 
world cease from their labours, and whose festival they 
celebrate this day? 

It is Michael the Archangel, who hath ordered the 
denizens of heaven and redeemed the peoples of the 
earth, and who, by reason of his great love for us, maketh 
mention of us before God our Creator. The inhabitants 
of heaven celebrate his festival this day without opposition, 
and it is also the work of the peoples of the earth to 
do likewise this day, and to rejoice and to celebrate the 
festival with the holy Archangel Michael. 

Michael is not a man, and no being that liveth upon 
earth hath seen him in his glory, as it is written in an- 



THE ENCOMIUM OF TIIKODOSIUS. 9* 

other place, "He is a Spirit 1 p. 10 and not flesh." Michael 
is incorporeal, and no corporeal being that eateth can see 
him, or endure his glory. And I will answer and sav 
unto you, and I will convince you and prove to YOU 
that the inhabitants of heaven will never again sin; and 
in their midst there will nevermore be enmity, nor envy, 
nor hatred, nor slander, nor adultery, nor murder, nor 
theft, nor any impurity; but they are holy, and they shall 
rest in holiness now those things shall never exist among 
the saints in this world and the)- shall keep an endless 
feast with Christ the King for ever, because they have 
cast forth from their midst Satan, the slanderer and enemy 
of the Creator and the adversary of all truth. For this 
reason they celebrate this day the festival of the holy 
Archangel Michael, the ruler of the hosts of heaven, who 
hath prepared for us this table, of which we are un worthy, 
that is to say, the table of this festival which is set for 
us in heaven and upon earth according to the command 
of our Saviour Jesus Christ, Whose command is the command 
of I lis Father for Father and Son and Holy Spirit are 
One God, and One consubstantial and indivisible King 
ship, inscrutable and without origin which can be found 
out Who is the Cause of all things; and under Flis 
dominion alone are the inhabitants of heaven and of earth, 
[p. II ] And now, my beloved, having made known 
unto you the greatness of this feast which is spread for 
us this day, it is meet that we ourselves should celebrate 
the festival of him whose festival the angels of God ce 
lebrate this da) , and we must beautify ourselves, both 
in our outer and in our inner man, that we may go into

this glorious feast this clay, and eat of all the good things 
which God hath prepared for us. But perhaps ye will 
say, "Behold this is a royal feast, and it is meet that 
"\ve should not sit down until the nobles of the palace 
"have iirst been invited." Then will I ask [Adam , say 
ing, "Art thou not he whom God did create with 1 lis 
"own hands, in His own image and likeness, and did fill 
"with glory and call thy name Adam ? I entreat now 
"thy goodness and majesty and I beseech thee to tell me 
"if thou dost not thyself also rejoice at the feast of the 
"holy Archangel Michael." Hearken now, for Adam 
speaketh, "Yea, I am Adam, and it is for me to invite 
"all men to this festival this day. But I rejoice more than 
"they all, for when I had angered God, and He had 
"brought me out from Paradise, because I had trans- 
"gressed His command by reason of my helpmeet Kve 
"making me to eat of the fruit of the tree, concerning 
"which He commanded me not to eat, it was Michael who 
"prayed to God for me until He forgave me my sin; 
" p. 12 for this reason I rejoice at his festival this day." 

"O Abel, thou noble younger son, tell me if thou 
"dost rejoice this day at the festival of the holy and 
"mighty Archangel Michael?" 

Abel saith, "I rejoice and I keep the festival this 
"day, for it was he whose festival they celebrate this 
"day who carried my sacrifice and offering up to God, 
"\\ ho did not regard the sacrilice of my brother, because 
"he brought it not with an upright heart; for this reason 
"I rejoice this day." 

"And thou, O Seth, do I see thee rejoicing on the 
"day of the holy Archangel Michael? 

[He saith, | "Indeed 1 rejoice and am glad [this day],

"O Knoch, the just man, whom God removed from 
"this world, do I see thee rejoicing this day?" 

lie saith, "Indeed I rejoice and am glad [this da)-, 
"because the whole race of man hath sprung from my 
"seed, and because Michael hath never ceased to entreat 
"God to show mercy unto sinners, and to make them to 
"live for ever, |p. 13] and I rejoice at his festival because 
"he prayeth for my children." 

"O Methuselah, the old man whose days were lengthen- 
"ed, whose white and pure garments I see in the midst 
"of the feast, why dost thou rejoice this clay?" 

He saith, "How can I help rejoicing? I am the eighth 
"from Adam, and I am the man whose prayers were taken 
"by the holy Archangel Michael and carried up to heaven, 
"and finally God blessed me with a long life which ex- 
"ceeded that of my father Adam by thirty-eight years." 

"O Noah, the just man, I say unto thee, Hast thou 
"but I see thou hast great joy this day?" 

He saith, "How can I help rejoicing and being glad? for 
"when God was angry with the world, and wished to destroy 
"it, He placed me in the ark with my wife, and children, 
and creatures of every kind that moveth upon earth, and 
"lie opened the cataracts of heaven and poured out rain

"O Abraham, the father of the patriarchs, dost not

"the first man with whom Michael and his brother anp-el 
"Gabriel sojourned, and he entreated God for me that 1

"under the tree of Mamre." 

"O Isaac, the holy vow and sacrifice acceptable to the 
"living God, what doest thou in this place this day? Dost 
"thou console thyself with great consolation on the festival 
"of the holy Archangel Michael?" 

He saith, indeed I am comforted, for 1 was the only 
"child of my parents, and my mother was barren and 
"bore no other child besides me. Afterwards my father 
"bound me hand and foot, and laid me upon stones on 
"a desert mountain, and with my own eyes I saw the knife

O Jacob, prince of patriarchs, who prevailed with 
"God, and who wast a giant among men, dost not thou

"O Joseph, the just man, whose brethren were jealous 
"of him, what doest thou in this place this day? Dost 
"them rejoice at the festival of the Archangel Michael?" 

And straightway Joseph, the just man, answereth at 
once, saying, "Verily, it behoveth me to rejoice this da)-, 
"for when my brethren were jealous of me, and drove 
"me forth into a strange land, and I became a miserable 
"alien without any one to comfort me, and with a mul-

"came to me, and comforted me in them all, and finally 
"he prayed to God and He made me ruler over Egypt." 

"O Moses, and Aaron, and Joshua the son of Nun,

These saints make answer, saying, "Joy is our part,

we enter therein arrayed in torn and foul garments, and 
having our bodies full of uncleanness, they turn us out 
in disgrace from before those who are clothed in glorious 
apparel, and who will remove their garments from our 
path lest they be in any way defiled by us. And after 
being cast forth in great disgrace these same beings will 
mock at us, saying, "O senseless and abominable men, 
"how is it that ye are not ashamed [to do this thing- 1?

"what befell the man who dared to go into the feast in 
"unclean garments like unto your own? It is written that 
"I le made them bind him hand and foot and cast him 
"into outer darkness, where there is weeping and gnashing 
"of teeth." 1 

And now, O beloved, let me lead you through into the 

J o 

outer chamber, and sit ye clown for a little, so that when 
God the King shall have come in with Michael His chief 
captain, Michael may entreat him to show mercy unto 
you, and to the other suppliants, and to those who sit at 
the gate; for the Archangel whose festival ye keep this 
day is compassionate, and will not forsake you. And 
strengthen your hearts and souls, and I will entreat him 
not to take vengeance upon you during this festival lest 
ye bring suffering upon yourselves here. Briefly then I 
have shown you and ye know, O beloved, that the ob 
jections which I have brought before you, and especially 
the things which have been spoken by ourselves, are made 
by men like unto ourselves, and not by God. But perhaps 
some one will say to me, "What are unclean, or what 
"are beautiful garments ? [p. 22 "What is the beautifying 
"of the body? Is there any hypocrisy with God, or dotli 
"He love the rich more than the poor man? Cannot I 
"of my own will become poor, or if I desire cannot I be- 
"come rich, and if any man wish it can he not become of 
1 St. Matthew xxii. i 14. 



THE ENCOMIUM OF TIIKODOSIUS. 19* 

"no account?" God forbid that it should be thus. God 
is no hypocrite, neither doth He love the rich man more 
than the poor man; God forbid! But I will show you 
what is the beautiful apparel which ye must put on if ye 
wish to g-o into the feast of Michael. "Anoint thy head 
"with oil, and wash thy face," 1 the interpretation of which 
is that thou must cast forth from thee all evil deeds, and 
keep the festival with the holy Archangel Michael. And 
when they bid thee to the feast of Michael the Archano-el, 
cleanse thy heart from all evil things, and take out from 
thyself ever)- impure thought, and put on thy fine raiment, 
and go to the church of God which is this house of prayer. 
Drive forth from thee all fornication, and anger, and im 
purity, and array thyself in innocency, and peace, and 
truth, and enter into His courts with joy, and rejoice with 
the Archangel Michael. And when they bid thee to the 
marriage chamber of the true King and of His chief 
captain, let thy alms and thy charities open the door 
thereof for thee, and whatsoever thou shalt o-ive to Him, 

o 

p. 23 verily thou shalt find it upon the table before thee. 
If thou wouldst glorify the Archangel Michael, the chief cap 
tain of the true King, send the widows and orphans forth 
from thee with their faces bright and full of joy, and 
with their bodies clothed with the measure of thy power; 
I say unto thee that thy sacrifice shall be accepted before 
God and before His holy Archangel Michael, and thou 
thyself shalt be gratified. Receive the stranger on his 
holy festival, and show mercy unto him, and the Arch 
angel Michael will have mercy upon thee, and will receive 
thee joyfully, and will carry thee into the court of the 



1 St. Matthew vi. 17. 



20* SAINT MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL. 

King with joy, and thy face shall be light. If any man 
ask anything at thy hand on the day of the Archangel 
Michael delay not to give it to him. For I say unto 
thee, O beloved, that whatsoever a man giveth, Michael 
taketh it from his hand and carrieth it up to God; he 
will give it back to thee twofold upon earth, and God will 
show mercy unto thee in His kingdom, for "charity maketh 
"man to be praised in judgment." Again it is written, 
"Be merciful, that men| may be merciful to you." 1 And 
if thou shalt keep the festival of the Archangel Michael 
every month now the twelfth day is the day of his 
commemoration and art mindful of gifts for him with 
joy according to thy power, the Archangel himself will 
pray to God for thee at all times, p. 24 1 that He may 
bless thee [by granting ] all thy petitions according to the 
measure of thy remembrance of Him]. But perhaps, () 
beloved, thou wouldst say unto me, "If I give alms or 
"gifts, I give them to thee in the name of God; Michael 
"is not God that sacrifices should be offered unto him." 
On this 1 make answer, Verily thou hast well spoken, 
O man upright in the belief of God; but hearken and I 
will show thee. Is there not set over the country a 
governor in whose hands are all the companies of soldiers 
and all the army, in which thou findest one man of higher 
rank than another, but is not the o-overnor hio her than 

O O 

they all? Now although the governor may establish a 
friendship between himself and one of the army, and may 
bestow great honours upon him, he cloth not act thus 
with all the company in which his friend serveth, but he 
acteth thus because he knoweth that the company in 

1 St. Matthew v. 7 (?). 



THE ENCOMIUM OF THEODOSIUS. 2 I * 

which his friend is stationed is many in number. And 
this friend is at all times near the governor, who is able 
to deliver him from all the many trials of this world 
which is full of trouble and affliction, and he findeth 
freedom of speech before him after the manner of a 
noble, and thus the rest of the company findeth favour 
in the sight of the governor by reason of him. And 
likewise every one who doeth alms or giveth a gift 
in the name of the Archangel Michael, receiveth his gift 
and carrieth it to God, as Christ our God in truth said, 
<l | p. 25 \Vhosoever receiveth a prophet in the name of a pro- 
"phet shall receive the reward of a prophet; and whosoever 
"shall receive a righteous man in the name of a righteous 
"man shall receive the reward of a rio-hteous man. And 

o 

"whosoever shall give you a cup of cold water in my 
"name" and ye are Christ s "verily I say unto you that 
"his reward shall not perish." 1 If thou bringest a gift unto 
God in the name of His holy Archangel Michael, or any 
alms or charity, whether it be great or whether it be 
little, on the festival of Michael be not thou halting be 
tween two opinions in the matter, lest thou thyself shalt 
cause thy labour to be in vain, but believe wholly and 
firmly without any stumblingblock the Archangel Michael 
will receive it and bring it before God, and its savour 
will be like the smell of incense, and he will take counsel 
for them that great good things be prepared for them, 
and he will take them from the hand of God to deliver 
them from everlasting punishment. And now would ye 
know what things God will inve in return to those who 

o o 

bring sacrifices, and chanties, and alms to give to Him 
1 St. Matthew x. 41, 42. 



SAINT MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL. 

in the name of the hoi}- Archangel Michael ye must 
know also that He will minister unto them in this world, 
and that when they are removed from this life He will 
receive them unto Himself in the mansions of His king 
dom listen then, and I will tell you concerning this 

* ^> 

mighty power (?) that ye may glorify |p. 26 the God of 
the holy Archangel Michael. 

There was a righteous and God-loving man in the 

o 

city of Senahor whose name was Dorotheos, and he loved 
to give alms and charities, and this man had as his help 
meet a woman called Theopisthe, who was as pious and 
as perfect in mercy and charity as her husband ; and these 
people had given great gifts in the name of the God of 
the holy Archangel Michael from the time when they 
had first come together. And they were both young, and 
the parents of both had left them a goodly inheritance, 
and they were very rich, and they had many possessions, 
and much wealth, and sheep, and oxen, and cattle, and 
other goods of this world. And these two people had 
great love for God, and for His holy Archangel Michael, 
and when the twelfth day of the month drew nigh they 
were wont to be careful for it, and to make ready offerings 
from the morning of the eleventh day of the month; and 
they sent with great zeal and without sparing gifts and 
wine to the church of the holy Archangel Michael. After 
this they were wont to slay sheep, and to devote them 
selves to the preparation of the food and gifts which 
were needed for the wants of the people. And after they 
had received the life-giving Mysteries on the twelfth day 
of the month, [p. 27] they gathered together every one 
to partake of the food, the blind, and the cleaf, and the 
destitute, and the orphans, and widows, and strangers, 



TIIK ENCOMIUM OF TIIKODOSIUS. 2 3* 

and the>- stood up and ministered unto them with great 
enjoyment of soul, and joy of spirit, and gladness of heart, 
until they had eaten their fill; then they brought to them 
choice wine and drew for them until they had drunk their 
fill, and they anointed their heads with fine oil, saying, 
"Go in peace, O beloved brethren; we have been ac- 
"counted worth}- of great honour this day in that your 
"holy feet have entered into the house of your servants." 
And thus Dorotheos and Theopisthe continued to do on 
the twelfth day of each month, and at length the fame 
of their goodness reached unto every place in all the 
land of Egypt, and multitudes of people honoured them 
by reason of the glory of their good works, and glorified 
God Who had created them, and praised and blessed 
their parents who had begotten them, and all men ascribed 
honour to them by reason of the noble deeds which they 
manifested in the name of the God of Michael And they 
fled from vain-glory, for their hope was strong in God 
and in the Archangel Michael. 

o> 

And it came to pass that after they had continued to 
do thus for a long time God commanded the heavens to 
pour no rain upon the earth for three years, by reason 
of the [p. 28 sins of the children of men, and the whole land 
of Egypt and all those that were therein were troubled 
because of their sufferings by thirst and by the destruction 
of food, as it is written, "Then the multitude came to 
"an end and died, and the cattle perished with them." 
And moreover, the waters of Gihon (Nile) did not rise, 
and no rain fell upon the earth for a space of three whole 
years. Now this holy man Dorotheos and his wife did 
not cease to do according to their wont every month, 
and they prayed to God and to His Archangel Michael, 



24* SAINT MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL. 

saying, "O God of Michael, take not away from us Thy 
"gifts and charities, (or we are Thy servants." And as 
the)- continued to do these things ill-luck fell upon them, 
and multitudes of their cattle perished. Now when two 
years of the famine were ended and the third was drawing 
nigh, everything which they had had come to an end, and 
at length of the very few beasts which they had left 
all died except one sheep. Then the pious man said to 
his blessed wife, "O my sister, thou knowcst that to-day 
"is the eleventh day of Paopi 1 , and that to-morrow is the 
"festival of the holy Archangel Michael. Let us be careful 
"for the gift which we are wont to give to the steward, 
"and let us slay this one sheep that we may make it 
"ready for the festival of the holy Archangel Michael. If 
"we die we belong to God, and if we live we are also 
"His; p. 29] blessed be the name of God for ever." His 
wife saith to him, "As God liveth, O my brother, this 
"care hath been in my mind since yesterday, but I could 
"find no occasion to ask thee concerning it, for I know 
"what hath happened to thee; but I rejoice greatly that 
"thou hast not forgotten the gift for God, and do thou, 
"O my brother, even as thou hast said." And when the 
morning of the twelfth day of Paopi had come they rose 
up early at dawn, and performed all their ministration, 
and they omitted nothing which they were wont to do 
in the time of their wealth; and there was left to them 
nothing except a little oil and a little wine, and also they 
had no garments at all except those in which they were 
wont to receive the Eucharist. Nevertheless at this time 
the>- blessed God and the holy Archangel Michael, and

they hymned and praised Him clay and night with floods 
of tears, saying, "O God Jesus Christ, help us. O thou 
^Archangel Michael, pni } - to God for us that He may 
"open to us the hand of His mercy and blessing lest the 
"hope of thy offering and gift which we bring to God 
"in thy holy name, O Archangel Michael, perish from our 
"hands. Thou knowest our hearts and our love towards 
"thee. We have no helper besides thee, for thou | p. 30 hast 
"been our helper from our youth up, and thou hast been 
"an ambassador for us before God our Saviour. And now 
"we beseech thee, O kind guardian, holy Archangel, if it 
"be meet that after all the oaths which we have sworn 
"with God and with thee, this great affliction should over- 
"take us at the end of our lives and we must cease from 
"thy gift and alms to thee, let thy goodness prevent us 
"and do thou entreat God to show great mercy unto us, 
"and to remove us from this vain life like all our fathers- 
"for behold, O our helper, thou seest what things have 
"befallen us for our sins sake, and it is good for us to 
"die, for the death of every man is better than life without 
"good fruit lest if this affliction continueth with us we 
"forget thy gift and thy charity which we have offered 
"unto God and to thee, for poverty produceth multitudes 
"of evils, which bring on death and make men to become 
"doers of what is amiss. And now, O Archangel Michael, 
"we have shown forth our weakness before thee, forget 
"us not because of our sins, but do unto us as it is written, 
"The angel of God encampeth round about every one 
"that feareth Him, and delivereth them. 1 And" David saith 
concerning the peoples, |p. 3 i -God feedeth them in their

"hunger 1 . 1 and he saith also, The righteous man seeketh 
"after bread all the day, but God is merciful and giveth 
"it to him . And now, () our helper, thou holy Archangel 
"Michael, thou seest all the matters of thy servants and 
"there is nothing more left for us to say except, We arc 
"willing and ready to die . Help us, O God our Saviour, 
"and we utter these words blessing God, God hath given 
"and God hath taken away; may God s will be done, 
"and may God s name be blessed for ever. Amen "." 

And these and such like words did the righteous 
man and his wife say from the twelfth da)- of Paopi, and 
they continued to entreat the God of Michael until the 
ninth hour of the eleventh day of the month Athor, the 
morrow of which, that is to say the twelfth da) , was 
the great clay 3 of the festival of the holy Archangel 
Michael, just as we are gathered together one with an 
other to celebrate his festival this da) . 

Now when the time for the customary monthly pre 
paration of the hol\ sacrifice had arrived, that is to say 
the evening of the eleventh clay, which is the night before 
the twelfth day, the truly believing man Dorotheos began 
to say to his pious wife, "O my sister, what canst thou 
do by sitting down? Knowest thou not that to-morrow 
"is the festival? Forget not the erood gift, and let not

"which is pleasant to thy heart be p. 32 burdensome to thee, 
"O my sister, lest thou be deprived of the hope in God, 
"for it is Me who showeth grace to us in everything." 
And that blessed woman said, "Well dost thou aoree

"with me, and well hast thou brought l)efore me the 
"delight, and joy, and riches of our soul, which is the 
"glorious commemoration of the holy Archangel Michael. 
"Verily, O my brother, from the dawn of this day until 
"now, neither have floods of tears ceased to well up in 
"my eyes nor fire to burn within me, by reason of the 
"festival of our helper the holy Archangel Michael. And 
"now, O my brother, let us see what thou canst do, lest 
"our gift come to an end, and we defraud the being to 
"whom we have been accustomed to make it. We have 
"heard, moreover, how the great Apostle Paul said, 
"Whosoever hath begun to do a good work let him 
" complete it against the day of the manifestation of our 
"God Jesus Christ ; 1 behold, we have begun to do a good 
"work, and let us be careful to complete it". Dorotheos 
saith to her, "What have we left, my sister? peradventure 
"it may suffice for our need." Theopisthe saith, "We have 
"a vessel full of bread which is fit to be set before the 
"brethren, and a little oil sufficient for the food and for 
"the anointing of the heads of the brethren, but we have 
"neither wheat nor Hour." Dorotheos saith, "Verily, my 
"sister, we have these things, although we have no sheep 
"to slay; but the will of God be done. p. 33] God 
"asketh from us nothing but what we have the might to 
"give|, as it is written, i will love Thee, O God, my 
"strength ; 2 it is better that we should give a little than 
that we should give nothing at all. And now let me 
give utterance to that which is in my heart. Behold 
each of us still has left festal apparel. I will take my 
garments first, and will buy flour therewith for the

28* SAINT MICHAEL TJIK AR( I IANGK1,. 

"preparation of our gift, which shall suffice for the gift 
"for the people, and for the flour offerings, and when 
"to-morrow cometh, I will take thy garments, and will 
"go and buy with them a sheep which we will slay 
"for this festival to-morrow, which is the great [day of 
"the festival of the holy Archangel Michael. If we find 
[a sheep | we will eat of him, and if we find him not we 
"will glorify God; and if we die it is God Who will 
"receive us unto Himself because we did not cease from 
"[making Mis offering." The prudent woman saith to 
him, "O my brother, there are not only thy clothes and 
"mine, but my vail also. I would give my soul for the 
"sake of making a gift to God and for charity s sake". 
Her husband saith unto her, "The zeal which thou hast 
"manifested towards these things is well, but keep thy 
"vail to cover thy head, according to the words of [our 
"master Paul." 1 

And after these tilings Dorotheos took the apparel in 
which he was wont to receive the Mysteries, and sold it 
for corn, |p. 34] and he gave the corn to the steward; 
then he returned to his house joyfully, and said, "Behold, 
"God hath provided for us in the matter of the gift." 
And it came to pass that when it was the morning of 
the twelfth clay of Athor the pious woman sought [Uoro- 
theos , and said to him, "() my brother, arise, take my 
"apparel that thou mayest see if thou canst not find a 
"sheep that we may make ready for the brethren who 
"are coming to us." Now Dorotheos, wishing to try her 
zeal, said to her, "O my sister, if 1 take thy apparel 
"what wilt thou do -when thou wishest to receive the 

1 i Cc rinthians xi. 5 13.

"Blessings on this great festival to-day? I am a man, 
"and I can go into every place alike without shame to 
"myself, but a woman may not uncover herself, especially 
"not in the church". And when the pious woman heard 
these things she wept bitterly, and said, "Woe is me, O 
"my beloved brother, what is that which thou hast spoken 
"to me this clay? Are we separated this day, and have 
"we become twain? Am not I with thee one body? 
"Have I no part with thee in the offering? Wilt not 
"thou take from me my share on the festival of the 
"Archangel Michael? Nay, my brother, think not thus 
"within thyself that I should be uncovered, for those 
"who are in the church are neither male nor female in 
"Christ, but are even as angels, and archangels, and Che- 
"rubim and Seraphim, with the Saviour in their midst;" 
| p. 35] and saying these things she wept bitterly. When 
Dorotheos saw the exceeding zeal of her spirit he was 
moved concerning her, and he rejoiced in the strength 
of her belief, and said to her, "Rise up, and have a care 
"for the offering and the oil, which we are eoino- to send 

o o 

"to the church, and let us set out the table and the little 
"bread thereupon, and make ready the little wheat which 
"we have]. And I will go out, and perhaps God will 
"give us a sheep wherewith we may make read) food 
"for the brethren on this great festival this day." 

And he rose up with great zeal and good confidence 
towards God and His holy Archangel Michael, and he 
took the garment, and went along his way, praying to 
the God of Michael that He would make his way pros 
perous. Now as he was going along the way he came 
upon a shepherd and he said to him, "Peace be upon 
thee], my beloved;" and the shepherd said to him, "And

thee also." The pious man said to the shepherd, 
"Can I not find with you a sheep to-day? for a ore at 
man hath visited us this day." The shepherd said to 
him, "What price shall he be? I )orotheos answered, 
"The third of a dinar will be enough for me to give:]." 
And the shepherd said, "Give me the price of him that 
1 may give him to thee." Then the pious man handed 
to him the garment of his wife, saying, "Take this into 
"thy care for three days, and if I do not bring thee the 
"third of a dinar take away the garment, and thou shalt 
"have full power over it." The shepherd answered and 
said, "What can I do with this garment? [p. 36 1 I have 
"no one in my house who weareth an) but woollen gar- 
"ments;" and the shepherd turned away from the pious 
man who was holding the garment in his hand. Then 
Dorotheos went upon his way weeping bitterly, and pon 
dered in his heart, "What shall i do, or what can I say 
"to my wife?" And as lie was walking along his road 
weeping, and having his eyes heavy with crying, he 
looked before him and saw the hoi} Archangel Michael 
coming along riding upon a white horse like a royal 
governor, with angels marching by his side in the form 
of soldiers; and Dorotheos was greatly afraid, and with 
drew from the way, leaving the path for the governor 
and his soldiers. And when the holy Archangel Michael 
had come up with him, he drew bridle and stood by 
him, and said, "Hail, Dorotheos, good and faithful man, 
"whither goest thou, and whence comest thou that thou 
"art thus carrying this garment, and art walking along 
"the road by thyself?" And Dorotheos, standing at a 
distance from him, answered and said, "Peace also be to 
"thee! () my lord and master and governor, thy coming

"to us this day is well." The governor, who was Michael, 
said to him, "Is not Theopisthe alive?" and Dorotheos, 
with his head bent towards the ground by reason of the 
glory of the governor, replied, "Waster, thy handmaid 
"liveth." The governor saith to him, "What is this in 
"thy hand?" p. 37! and Dorotheos answered shamefacedly, 
"The garment of my wife." The governor saith to him, 
"What wouldst thou do with it?" Dorotheos saith to him, 
"A mighty man hath visited us this day, and I am not 
"able to find for him that which befitteth his rank. By 
"reason of the season [of dearth] which hath come upon 
"us we have no money in our hands, and I took this 
"garment to give in exchange for a sheer), but the shep- 

O O O i ; 1 

"herd would not take it, and I neither know what to do, 
"nor what to set before the governor." The governor, 
who was Michael, said to him, "If I pledge myself to 
"obtain a sheep for thee, wilt thou receive me and those 
"who are with me into thy house this day?" Dorotheos 
answered and said unto him, "Yea, master, hold thou thy 
"servant worthy that thou shouldst come under the roof 
"of his house." 

Then the governor, who was Michael, said to one of 
the angels who were with him in the forms of soldiers, 
"Go with Dorotheos to the shepherd and say to him, 
"The governor who passed by thee this day) saith to 
"thee, Send me now a sheep of the value of the third 
"of a dinar, and I pledge myself to obtain the price 
"thereof before mid-day this day, and to send it to thee." 
And Dorotheos and the angel, who was in the form of 
a soldier, went to the shepherd in the name of the Arch 
angel, and took a sheep. 

Then the governor, who was Michael, looked at Do-

rotheos and said to him, "Behold, p. 38] the sheep is 
"ready for the great man whom thou hast received into 
"thy house at thy bidding this day; see now if thou 
"canst not find a fish for my own want, for I do not 
"eat sheep s flesh." Dorotheos saith to the governor joy 
fully, "If God provideth it 1 shall buy it." The governor 
saith to him, "I low wilt thou buy it?" Dorotheos an 
swered, "1 will leave this garment for it until I can send 
"the price of it to the fish merchant." And the <>-overnor 

> 

called to one of the soldiers who were with him, and 
said, "Go to the market (?) and say to those who catch 
"fish, The governor who hath lately passed by you saith 
"to you, Send me a fine, large fish, the price of which 
"is the third of a dinar, and 1 will send the price of it 
"to you with Dorotheos by mid-day to-day; " and the 
angel, who was in the form of a soldier, went to the 
catchers of fish in the name of the governor and took 
from them a fish and brought it to the governor. The 
governor then said to Dorotheos, "What wilt thou do 
"next? lor thy business is now complete;" and Dorotheos 
said to him, "Yea, master, everything is now completed." 
And the governor said, "Let us go on;" and they took 
up everything, that is to say the sheep and the fish, 
and they went forward and Dorotheos walked along, think 
ing within himself, p. 39 Where shall I rind the money 
to pay for this sheep and this fish, and where shall 1 
imd the bread, and the wine, and the cushions upon 
which the governor may recline, and everything else 
which he needed!? And it came to pass, that multitudes 
of thoughts as to what he should do were in his heart, 
and he continued to pray to God and to the holy Arch 
angel, saying, "O holy Archangel, O faithful helper, stand

v)0 

"thou by me this day, for 1 am thy servant, and thou 
"knowest that I have done all these things in the name 
"of our Lord Jesus Christ." Now while Dorotheos was 
walking along meditating these things the Archangel knew 
the thoughts of his heart, but he waited in order that 
he might see his faithful zeal for him. 

And it came to pass that when they had arrived at 
the house of Dorotheos Michael knocked first at the door 
of the dwelling, and Theopisthe, the free-woman, the wife 
of Dorotheos] came out; and Michael said, "Peace |to 
"thee], O Theopisthe, thou beloved God-loving woman, 
"how cloest thou in these days?" Theopisthe "answered! 
Peace be upon thee, my lord, and master, and governor! 
"Well has God brought thee to us this day with Michael 
"the holy Archangel. Come in, master, stand not without." 
And while Theopisthe the wife was saying these things, 
behold her husband Dorotheos came with the sheep \i 
his hand, and the fish, and the garment, and laid them 
clown before her. She saith to him, "O my master and 
"brother, where didst thou find these things which thou 
"hast brought with thee here? [p. 40] I see that the 
"garment is still with thee." Dorotheos saith to her, 
"The governor pledged himself for me and gave them 
"to me." And Theopisthe said to him, "Well hath God 
"brought to us this clay the governor and those that are 
"with him with the holy Archangel Michael, and verily 
"we will partake of the things for which he hath pledged 
"himself for us;" and she spake these things joyfully. 
And the governor, who was Michael, said, "I will go to 
"the Offering, for to-day is the festival of the holy Arch- 
"angel Michael, and when the hour hath come make 
"read) the place with care, and kill the sheep and the

"fish, but see that no one goeth near the fish until I 
"have come and done with it according to my will." 
And they said, "According to the command of our master 
"so shall it be;" and he went out from them, and they 
knew not who he was. but they thought that he was a 
governor of the district. 

Then Dorotheos said to Theopisthe his wife, "What 
"shall we spread upon the ground for the governor |to 
"recline upon], and where shall I find bread meet for 
"his honour? Let us devote ourselves to doing this day 
"what lieth in our power for him." His wife said to 
him, "() my brother, God hath not forsaken us. Arise, 
"find a man to kill the sheep, and let us make ready 
"the thino-s in the house;" and he did so. And his wife 

o 

said to him, "Bring out a little wine that we may know 
"if it is fit for the governor or not", [p. 41 and when 
he had gone and had opened the door of the cellar IK; 
found it filled with wine to the very door. And Doro 
theos was afraid, and went back to his wife and asked, 
"I lath any one brought wine here since I went out?" 
She saith to him, "As God liveth, when I brought out 
"a little wine for the Offering this day there was nothing 
"left in the cellar except one bottle;" and Dorotheos said 
to her, "Let us wait until we see what is the end of 
"the matter." And they gave themselves to bringing out 
a little oil for the food of the brethren, and for the an 
ointing of their heads, and when the} had gone into the 
place where the oil was kept they found [there] seven 
jars filled to the brim with fine oil, and vessels which 
were filled with everything which the) wanted in the 
house, butter, and cheese, and honey, and vinegar, and 
everv other household matter; and thev wen; afraid to <jo in.

After these things, when they had gone into their 
bed-chamber, they found a chest filled with all kinds of 
line raiment of greater beauty and richer than that 
which the\- had worn at their wedding and in the days 
which were past; and after these things they went into 
the place where the bread was made, and there they 
found good and excellent bread. And straightway they 
knew that an act of grace had been done to them, and 
they glorified the God of the Archangel Michael. And 
Dorotheos said to Theopisthe his wife, "God hath pro 
vided all things, come, let us spread them ready for the 
"governor, p. 42] for the hour hath come for us to go 
"in to the holy offering." And when they had made all 
things ready, and had laid out a place upon which the 
governor might recline according to his rank, and had 
dressed the tables for the brethren accordino- to their 

> 

custom, they arranged themselves in goodly apparel, and 
went into the holy ministration in the church of the 
holy Archangel Michael; and they prayed there with 
great joy. And when the}- had come into the church they 
both bowed down before the place for prayer, and prayed 
to God giving great thanks, and they uttered blessings 
before the image of the holy Archangel Michael, and 
said, "We give thanks unto Thee, O our God Jesus 
"Christ, and to Thy good Father, and to the I loly Spirit 
"for ever, Amen. And we bless Thy holy Archangel 
"Michael because Thou hast not hidden Thy mercy from 
"us, neither hast Thou forgotten our gift; but Thou hast 
"sent unto us Thy loving-kindness quickly." After these 
things they partook of the Mysteries and received the 
blessing of peace. Then they came out quickly into the 
presence of the brethren, and the}- sat down, and waited

for the governor with great expectation; and there were 
gathered together there men and women until the whole 
place was filled with them. And Dorotheos and Theo- 
pisthe girded up their loins, and stood up and ministered 
unto them in every thing which they needed, p. 43 and 
they served them with good wine and choice oil and 
excellent food. And it came to pass that while they 
were thus ministering the governor, that is to say Mi 
chael, came with his soldiers, and knocked at the door. 
And Dorotheos and Theopisthe went out quickly with 
joy, and they opened the door, and received them, saying, 
"1 lappy are we in that we are held worthy of thy coming 
"to us this da) , O our master and governor, with thy 
"soldiers; verily we rejoice this day, for this day is a 
"great day, the festival of the holy Archangel Michael. 
"Come thou in, O blessed one, and may God make thee 
"joyful." Now when the governor had come in and found 
the whole place filled with women, and with small and great, 
he made as if he were astonished, and said to Dorotheos 
and Theopisthe, "O my brethren, what need have ye 
"of all this multitude of men and women whom I see 
"here? Lay not trouble upon yourselves this day by 
"reason of our coming to you. Have ye not considered the 
"affliction in which ye now are, and would it not be better 
"to act thus in times of abundance?" And they answered 
and said, "O master and governor, forgive us. We have 
"not laid trouble upon ourselves for thy sake, we only 
"render thanksgiving to our God and to His Archangel 
"Michael. Among those whom thou seest here to-day 
"there is no stranger, they all are kinsmen of ours 
"and arc, united to us in God;" and while these saints 
were saying these things p. 44 the Archangel Mi-

chad rejoiced at the perfectness of their natural dis 
positions. 

And after these things Michael and those who were 

witli him went into the place which Dorothea >s and Tlieo- 

pisthe had prepared for him, and when they had gone 

in they made the Archangel to sit down upon a seat. 

And he said to Dorotheos, "Bring me the fish before 

"thou doest anything to him." And when they had brought 

him he said to Dorotheos, "Sit down and open his bell}-;" 

and he did so. The governor said, "Take out his maw," 

and he took it out, and found that it was very lar<>-e. 

And Dorotheos said, "What is this, master?" and Michael 

said, "Open it;" and when he had opened it he found 

a bundle inside it sealed with seals. And he marvelled 

at the thing and said, "What is this, master?" and the 

governor, who was Michael, said to him, "Large fishes 

"like this swallow everything which they find in the water, 

"but open the packet, that thou mayest see what is 

"inside it." Dorotheos said to him, "Master, how can I 

"open it? it is sealed." Then the Archangel Michael 

stretched out his hand and took the bundle, and he found 

it to be full of fine gold money; and when they had 

counted it they found that it amounted to three hundred 

dinars, and among the money were three pieces each 

of the value of a third of a diJiar. And when Dorotheos 

had taken them he lifted up his eyes to heaven, and 

said, "Righteous art thou, O God, and to Thee belong 

"those who are upright, p. 45 and those who put their 

"confidence in Thee shall never be ashamed." 

Then the governor said to Dorotheos and Theopisthe 
his wife, "Come hither to me, O my beloved brethren, 
"and let me speak with you. Because ye are people of

"charity and because of the exceeding- great troul)le \vhicli 
"ye have undertaken for the sake of my coming unto 
"you this day, behold, God hath given to you this money 
"under this seal, which is that of the finger of God my 
"King, and which belongeth unto Him. And now in 
"return for your charities and for the trouble which ye 
"have endured for the race of man, and for those things 
"which ye have done unto me and unto those who are 
"with me this dav, God hath shown a favour unto you

"this day by the gifts of these three hundred dinars 
"and these three pieces each of the value of a third of 
"a dinar, lake them, and give one to the shepherd, 
"and one to the fisherman in exchange for the fish, and 
"take this last and give it as payment for the corn to 
"the man unto whom thou didst give thy garments yes- 
"terday in pledge for the sake of the gift to the church |." 
And they, I mean Dorotheos and Theopisthe, threw them 
selves down upon the ground, and bowing low before 
the governor, said, "What is this that thou sayest to us, 
"() our lord, and master, and governor? I last thou come 
"to us thy servants that we should take aught from thee? 
"Are not all men bound to minister unto the soldiers of 
"the king? Art thou not set over us to do with us that 
"which thou wilt? And, moreover, thou hast taken nothing 
"except the grace of God and His gift. Knowest thou 
"not, O our master and governor, p. 46] what day this 
"is, and that the little piece of bread which thou hast 
"eaten with our kinsfolk is not ours, but that of God 
"and His holy Archangel Michael, whose festival we 
"celebrate this day? Nevertheless, O master and gov 
ernor, if it be thy wish, we will take only the three 
"pieces of money each of the value of a third of a dinar, 



THE ENCOMIUM OK THEODOSIUS. 39* 

"that we may give them in payment, one for the sheep, 
"[one for] the fish, and the third for the redemption of 
"the apparel which is pledged according to thy com- 
"mand." And the governor, who was Michael, said to 
them, "Verily, by the life of my God and King ye must 
"perforce take all, and ye must not leave one behind, if 
"ye fear my God and King. For if He heard that ye had 
"not done so Me would be wroth, and I should receive 
"rebuke before my God and King for your sakes; and 
"I will persuade Him to be pleased to grant unto you 
"even greater gifts than these. And since ye must wish 
"to know the truth, it is not only these things which are 
"entrusted to me to give to you, but when I shall have 
"returned to my city I will give unto you your riches 
"as aforetime, and many exceeding great honours; and 
"now take these things which are the usury upon them." 
And when Dorotheos and Theopisthe his wife heard 
these things they marvelled, and said unto him, "Master, 
"we besech thee, mock not at thy servants, and say not 
"things which are beyond our nature to bear. Our master 
"came unto us and did we give him money that we 
"might receive usury at his hands? Verily we never saw 
"thee, master, |p. 47] before thou earnest into our house, 
"and we never looked upon thy face before this day, 
"and yet how sayest thou that thou hast received any- 
"thing from our hands?" The governor answered and 
said. "Listen unto me, and I will show you. The time 
"when 1 first came into your house was when your 
"parents died, and ye inherited possessions and money. 
"From that time until this day I have come into your 
"house once ever)- month, and after I have departed ye 
"have sent to me, yea, ye have sent large gifts to my

"city unto my God and King, and your names have been 
"written upon them all until the time when ye shall come 
"into the presence of my God and King, that He may 
"give them to you two-fold." And Dorotheos and his 
wife Theopisthe answered and said, "We entreat thee, 
"O our master and q-overnor, to show us this favour 

O 

"only to tell us what thy name is, that we may never 
"be slack by reason of these things which thou hast 
"spoken unto us." Then the governor, who was Michael, 
answered and said unto them, "Since ye wish to hear I 
"will show you my name and the name of my city. I 
"am Michael, the governor of the denizens of heaven 
"and of the peoples of the earth. I am Michael, the 
"chief captain of the powers of heaven. I am Michael, 
"the ruler of the worlds of light. I am Michael, |p. 48] 
"who decide all battles before the king. I am Michael, 
"the glory of all beings in heaven and in earth. I am Mi 
chael, the mighty one, by whom all the mercy of God hath 
"taken place. I am Michael, the steward of the kingdom 
"of heaven. I am Michael, the Archangel, who stand 
"by the hands of God. I am Michael, who bring in 
"the gifts and offerings of men to God my King. I am 
"Michael, who walk with those men whose trust is in 
"God. I am Michael the Archangel, who minister unto 
"all mankind in uprightness, and I have ministered unto 
"you from your youth up until this hour, and I will 
"never cease to minister unto you until I have brought 
"you to Christ my eternal King. Inasmuch as ye have 
"ministered unto me and unto my God with fulness of

"your midst yesterday and hear what ye said to each 
"other in respect of your wonted gifts at the festival? 
"Was not I with you when ye wept, and besought me, 
"saying, "Entreat God to take us out of this world 
"since the hope of thy charity is taken away from us?" 
" p. 49 Did not I see you when ye brought forth your 
"garments in which ye were accustomed to receive the 
"Blessings, and wished to sell them for the sake of the 
"sacrifice? I say unto you that I was present at all these 
times, and \vill be with you, and I will never forget 

5 

any of the things which ye have done from your youth 
up until this present, and I will show forth them all for 
you before God, Who is my King; and verily your 
offerings have been received like those of Abel, and 
Xoah, and Abraham, because ye gave them in upright- 
ness of heart. Blessed are ye, and good shall come 
unto you, and as are your names, so shall your blessing 
be; for the interpretation of Dorotheos is sacrifice of 
God , and the interpretation of Theopisthe is charity 
"of God ." 

"I am the Archangel Michael who stand by the hands 
of God, and ye have gotten for yourselves one to pray 
for you. I am Michael who receive your prayers, and 
supplications, and charities, and bring them up to God. 
And likewise it was I who went to Cornelius 1 and 
showed him the way of the life by baptism, which he 
received at the hands of Peter the chief of the Apostles. 
Fear ye not, for I will not depart from you, and I will 
l)e near unto you when my God draweth nigh unto you, 
because of your great charity towards me, p. 50 as it

"is written, Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh 
"unto you ." 1 

"And now, O Dorotheos and Theopisthe, be strong, 
"and take these things from my hands, for 1 have already 
"told you that it is the increase (or usury), and that the 
"crown (?) is in the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the 
"King of all the beings of heaven and earth. And I 
"have already given thanks unto you before God in return 
"for your gifts and charities". And when he had said 
these things unto them, he gave them the money with 
the salutation of peace, and went up to heaven with his 
angels; and Dorotheos and Theopisthe looked after him 
with fear until he had gone into heaven in the peace 
of God; Amen. 

And Dorotheos and Theopisthe his wife did as the 
holy Archangel Michael commanded . them, and they 
finished the festival with joy, and they ate and glorified 
God; and they ceased not from the works of chanty 
which they were wont to do in the name of Michael 
until they ended their life. 

And now, O my beloved, will not ye profit a little 
by what ye have just heard? Is not this narrative suf 
ficient to persuade your minds? Be ye not prevented 
irom bringing [your offerings to God in the name of 
Michael, for are ye not now certain that it is Michael 
the Archangel who will receive whatsoever ye give to 
God, | p. 51 and that he will make it manifest before 
Him on your behalf, and also that whatsoever ye give 
in the name of the God of Michael, lie will o-} V e a two- 

O 

fold increase to you through him, as He did to these

holy men? Ye have already heard, () my beloved, of the 
great gifts to God which these holy people, Dorotheos 
and Theopisthe, whose minds were right with Him, set 
apart for Him, and how God extended His iove towards 
them, and how He sent to them the Archangel Michael, 
who provided great and boundless riches, and a ladder 
to the kingdom of heaven for them. And I, O beloved 
brethren, know of a truth that whatsoever ye give in the 
name of the holy Archangel Michael ye shall receive two 
fold in this world, even before ye attain unto heaven. 

And now, O men filled with virtue, restrain not your 
selves, and set not a limit upon your power [of givino- , 
for ye know that it is not for what ye have given, or 
for what ye will give, that the Archangel Michael will 
minister unto you with joy, and whether it be little or 
much he will receive it from you as [the gift of| your 
zeal. God seeketh from you nothing which is beyond 
your power, He only looketh for an offering of goodwill ; 
listen, and I will show you. When the Saviour was with us 
upon earth |p. 52] men were wont to bring their rich 
gifts, and to cast them into the treasury [of the temple |, 
but God did not justify them greatly. But when the 
widow woman searched in her house and found only two 
mites, she brought them with uprightness of heart, and 
cast them into the treasury; and He Qrave her a blessino- 

* <_> <*"> " 

and praised her, saying, "Everything which she hath she 
"hath given; she hath given all her life". 1 And do thou 
likewise, O my beloved, be zealous to mve o-Jfts unto God

in the name of the Archangel Michael, and he himself

minister unto thee by them. If thou givest a gift in the 
name of the Archangel Michael, God will give to thee 
of that <>-ift, and Michael will ascribe honour unto thee; 
and if thou givest a gift in the name of the God of 
Michael, it is God Who will help thee in His mercy in 
His never-ending kingdom in heaven. If thou shalt receive 
a stranger in the name of the God of Michael, God will 
receive thee in the courts of peace. If thou givest drink 
to the thirsty in the name of the God of Michael, God 
will give thee to drink of the good things of His king 
dom. If thou clothest a naked person in the name of the 
God of Michael, God will clothe thee in a robe of glory 
in the heavens. If thou givest a cup of wine to anyone 
in the name of the ( iod of Michael, p. 53 ( iod will give thee 
to drink of the wine of the true, rich vine; and if thou 
hast not wine, give a cup of cold water only, according 
to the words of (iod in the Gospel which say, "\\hoso- 
"ever shall give you a cup of cold water in My name 
"(and ye are Christ s) shall not lose his reward," 1 and God 
will give thee to drink of the fountain of life which cometh 
forth from His holy throne. If thou visitest a sick person 
in the name of the God of Michael, God will send His 
angel to visit thee in thy great sickness, which is the 
day of thy death. If thou goest to those who are in 
prison, and comfortest them on the festival of the Arch 
angel Michael, God will send Michael to deliver thee from 
the prison of Amenti, 2 and (iod shall say unto thee, "I 
"was in prison and thou earnest unto Me." 3 If thou bulkiest 
a church in the name of the God of Michael, (iod will

bless thee with a house, not built with hands, in heaven. 
And if thoti seest anyone feeble with bodily infirmity, and 
ministerest unto them with medicines, the God of Michael 
shall heal thee of the sickness of Amenti, for it is written. 
"Be merciful that mercy may be shown unto you;" 1 and 
again, "Blessed are the merciful, for mercy shall be shown 
"unto them;" 2 and again, "Charity shall "make a man to 
"be praised in judgment;" and again, p. 54] "Charity shall 
"cover the multitude of sins." 3 

O beloved brethren, it is meet for us to strive to 
show mercy by means of gifts to God, and charity in the 
name of the God of Michael, for we know that it is meet 
and right so to do; and God is nigh at all times, and 
He giveth to each one according to his works. And let 
us stretch out our hands in charity at all times, O my 
beloved, for charity is of God, and charity is mercy. He 
showed mere)- unto our father Adam, and unto our mother 
live, and He accepted their repentance, and forgave them 
their transgressions through the prayers of Michael. He 
shewed love towards the righteous man Abel, and accepted 
his sacrifice through the prayers of Michael. He shewed mercy 
unto Enoch, and removed him from this life without letting 
him see death, through the prayers of Michael. He shewed 
mercy unto Noah, and made him an ark, and delivered 
him and all his house through the prayers of Michael. 
1 le shewed mercy unto Abraham our father, according to 
His covenant with him, and He gave him Isaac through 
the prayers of Michael. He shewed mercy unto Isaac^it 
iirst when he was about to be sacrificed, and gave a ram

in his stead .through the prayers of Michael). I le shewed 
mercy unto [acob, and gave him grace in the sight of 
his brother Ksau, through the prayers of Michael. And 
God shewed mercy unto Joseph, p. 55 and delivered him 
out of the hands of his brethren, and from the Egyptian 
woman, through the prayers of Michael. And God shewed 
mercy unto Moses, the greatest of the prophets, and filled 
him with grace more than any other man, through the 
prayers of Michael. He shewed mercy unto Joshua the 
son of Nun, and made the sun stand more than a \vhole 
day until he had overthrown his foes, through the prayers 
of Michael. He shewed mercy unto David the king, and 
He chose him out from among his brethren, and anointed 
him king over His people, through the prayers of Michael. 
He shewed mercy unto Solomon, and commanded him to 
build the temple of God, through the prayers of Michael. 
He shewed mercy unto the righteous king Hezekiah, and 
I le added fifteen years of grace to his days, through the 
prayers of Michael. He hath shewed mere) unto the 
whole race of Adam, and our God hath wrought exceed 
ing grace with them, for He bowed the heavens, and 
came down upon earth, and took flesh in the holy Virgin, 
and gave His own soul as a redemption for us, to deliver 
us from Amenti, through the prayers of Michael. And 
God shewed mercy unto our fathers the Apostles, and 
chose them out from the whole world, and I le gave them 
power to turn all men to the knowledge of the truth 
through the prayers of Michael.

God s whole will existeth in mercy and love, and that 
the holy Archangel Michael is a comforter and ambassador 
for us with God. Let us then ourselves follow and seek

after mercy and love, for it is written, "Mercy exalteth, 
and love maketh upright;" and our Master, and God, and 
Saviour, Jesus Christ the merciful One, cried out, saying, 
"He merciful, that mercy may be shown to you," 1 that 
is to say, give to God that gifts may be given to you 
and again, "With what measure ye mete, it shall be 
measured unto you." 2 Let us then mete with good measure 
to-day, on the festival of the holy Archangel Michael, that 
he may mete to us good measure in the kingdom of 
heaven; and let us keep a spiritual festival this day in 
the name of the Archangel Michael, that we may keep 
with him and with God the festival which endureth for 
ever in heaven. Let us put away from us all injustice 
on the festival of the holy Archangel Michael, that we 
may array ourselves in the apparel of light, and let us 
glorify God, and His holy Archangel Michael on this day 
of his holy festival, that he may glorify us with great and 
perfect beauty. And let us draw^ nigh to the Archangel 
Michael in his holy festival, [p. 57] having our bodies 
cleansed with holy water and made beautiful with glorious 
apparel, and our hands full of incense, saying, "O ruler

O my beloved, verily 1 have put my hand to a great 
undertaking, one which is beyond my power, and 1 have 
sought a great and wide sea which I am not able to pass 
over; but I said at the beginning of this encomium that 
my ship was small, that my merchandise was without

the great deep -which is the deep of this encomium in 
which I ascribe honour to the holy and mighty Arch

with which God hath endowed thee ? All these things 
which I have said, O ruler of the kingdom of heaven", 
are meet for the glory of thy majesty, but forgive me 
> my lord Michael, for I am a sinner, and my works 
are feeble. I beseech thee, O Michael my helper, to 
accept this my little sacrifice which I have brought in 
to give to thee at this holy festival and restrain not 
thyself from hearkening unto thy servant because my 
-lit is miserable; but accept my zeal, even as thou didst 
accept the two mites, for I know that thou art merciful 
and gracious, and therefore I seek thee, for I have no 
other ambassador with God but thee, O Archangel 
Michael. And if thou wilt do good unto me, and wilt 
receive my little offering, even though it be poor, I will 
be watchful henceforth to ascribe honour to thee with 
my sinful mouth, and halting tongue, and heart, all the 
days of my life. And moreover, I verily believe that if 
I forget thy name and do not keep it always in remem 
brance in my heart all the days of my life, O Archangel, 
that I shall bear no fruit, and be without reward from 
God; for it is the remembrance of thy holy name, |p. 60 
) great and holy Archangel, which delivered! me in my 
lying down and rising up. O holy Archangel Michael, 
through whom the whole race of Adam hath found free 
dom of speech before God, it is thou who comest and 
makest mention of us before Him, that He may show 
mercy upon us; be thou with us on this day of thy great

festival therein thou art an ambassador before God for 
us; that He may accept our zeal which we show in thy 
holy commemoration, O Michael our holy Archangel, that 
He may direct all our paths so that we may walk always 
before Him in the will of God; that He may deliver us 
from all the snares which the enemy of all truth and the 
evil liar spreadeth for us; and that He may stablish us 
to Himself in the kingdom and priesthood to be a holy 
family and a living people by the prayers which the Lady 
of us all, the bearer of God the Word, maketh for us 
for verily the holy Mary, who was Virgin at all times, is 
our ambassadress before the holy and mighty Archangel 
Michael, whose festival we celebrate this day, and who 
prayeth to God always for us and by the prayers of 
the whole company of our incorporeal associates ; and by 
the prayers of Saint John the Baptist, the forerunner and 
holy martyr |of Christ, than whom among those born ot 
women none greater hath arisen; p.6l and by the prayers 
of the Patriarchs, and Prophets, and the chief Apostles 
who follow the true Bridegroom, our Life, our Lord Jesus 
Christ; by the prayers of the three holy children Shadrach, 
Meshach, and Abednego; by the prayers of Saint Stephen, 
and of the whole company of the holy martyrs, and ot 
the holy men who bore the cross, who stand before the 
royal throne of God the Word, and entreat Him day and 
night to have mercy upon His people. He is our Lord 
and our God, Jesus Christ, to Whom be all glory, and 
honour, and adoration, and reverence, which are meet for 
the Father with Him, and the Holy and vivifying and 
consubstantial Spirit with Him, now and always, and for 
ever and ever, Amen. 



P. 63] [Here beginneth| the discourse of Abba Se- 
verus, the holy patriarch and Archbishop of Antioch, in 
which he shewed forth the compassion of God, and spake 
concerning the presence of the holy Archangel Michael, 
and of his love towards man, and how he delivereth 
men from the snares of the Devil. In it he also spake 
briefly concerning the holy Lord s Day now in that year 
the festival of the holy Archangel Michael happened to 
fall upon the holy Lord s Day and he spake, moreover, 
concerning Matthew the merchant, and his wife, and his 
son, and of how they believed in God through the prayers 
of the holy Archangel Michael. This discourse was pro 
nounced on the twelfth day of the month Athor, at the 
gathering together of the multitude to celebrate the 
festival of the holy Archangel Michael at his shrine, in 
the peace of God. Amen. 

I hear David, the holy Psalmist, inviting us to assemble 
together on this festival to-day, |p. 64] and crying out, 
and saying, "The angel of God encampeth round about 
"all those who fear Him, and delivereth them." 1 My 
beloved, the festival this day is two-fold: it is the festi 
val of the holy Archangel Michael, and the festival of 

1 Psalm xxxiv. 7.

the holy Lord s Day, |the day of] the resurrection of 
our Saviour. Behold I see that a great calm hath come, 
and that there is not a breath of wind to disturb us, 
and that ye all are ready to receive the words of in 
struction; so then, whether it be I who speak, or ye who 
listen, let there be wholly fulfilled in us the words, "And 
"some brought forth an hundredfold, some sixty, and some 
"thirty." 1 And moreover, ye know that the Giver of the 
true reward, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living 
God, is not far from us, for He saith with His lifegiving 
and truthful mouth, "Where two or three are gathered 
"together in My name, there am I in the midst;" 2 and 
since our God is with us let us accept the words of 
David, the Prophet and Psalmist, which say, "Be still, 
"and know that I am God. I am exalted over the heathen, 
"I am exalted over the whole earth." 3 Ye know also, 
( ) my beloved, that to-day is the festival of our salvation, 
the holy Lord s Day, in which, first of all, it is meet that 
we should hymn, and bless, and glorify God to Whom 
all honour is due always, |p. 65] and for ever and ever, 
Amen and afterwards, that we should direct our dis 
course to the honour of Michael, the mighty and holy 
Archangel. 1 lear ye also Him in the holy Gospel according 
to Matthew: "The Archangel of God said to the women, 
"hear ye not, for I know that ye seek Jesus Who was 
"crucified. He is not here; for He is risen, as He said 
"to His disciples." 1 And Saint Matthew saith, "He was 
"like lio-htnin^, and his clothing was white like snow," 5

tliat was the holy Archangel Michael, the ruler of the hosts 
of heaven. Let us then keep the feast this day, my 
beloved, for God is in our midst, and the whole company 
of the angels keep the festival of the holy Archangel 
with us, for it is Michael who entreateth God always "to 
forgive the whole race of man their sins. With which 
of all the saints was not the Archangel present to deliver 
him out of all his afflictions? and to which of all the 
martyrs did not the Archangel Michael give strength by 
God s command until he received his crown? And now, 
my beloved, if ye wish to know whether the Archangel 
Michael be present with those who walk after God w7th 
all their hearts, or whether he prayeth unto God that 
he may be their helper, listen, and I will show you this 
.great miracle which took place through the power of 
God and through the prayers of the holy Archangel 
Michael, p. 66 which is related by men worth)- of belief. 
I here was once a merchant whose name at first was 
Ketson, and he sprang from the country of Entike, and 
he was very rich and he had there much business; but 
he knew not God, for he was a pagan and worshipped 
the sun, and he lived in his heathenism, and God wished 
to deliver him. And it came to pass on a time that he 
loaded a ship with his wares, and departed to a city in 
the country of Philippi (?) called Kalonia, in which they 
worshipped God alone, and he entered therein on the 
first day of the month Athor, and stayed there and sold 
his wares. And when the eleventh day of the month 
Athor had come, at the time of noon on that day he 
passed by the shrine of the Archangel Michael, and saw 
men] crowning it with lanterns and draping it with cloth, 
and he marvelled greatly, and sat down there according 



i>4* SAINT MICIJAKL THE ARCHANGEL. 

to the dispensation of God to see what would be the 
end of the matter. And when the evening was come 
lie saw that all the multitude was gathered together 
there, and they lit the lamps and sang sweet hymns of 
praise; and the man marvelled, and because of his exceed 
ingly great astonishment he slept by the door of the 
shrine, [p. 67] And during the night the clergy and the 
law-loving gathered together and performed the service, 
and the man marvelled greatly at what he heard. And 
when the morning had come he set out to go unto two 
Christians who dwelt in that city, and he asked them, 
saying, "My brethren, what hath happened, and what is 
" the meaning of | the crowd which is in this city to-day?" 
And the men said to him, "To-day is the twelfth day of 
"Athor on which we celebrate the festival of the holy 
"Archangel Michael, for it is he who prayeth for us to 
"God that He will forgive us our sins, and will deliver 
"us from all evil." And the merchant said to them, 
"Where is he? for I myself would speak with him and 
"ask him to deliver me from all evil." And they answered 
and said to him, "Thou wilt not be able to see him until 
"thou art perfect, but if thou wilt become a Christian 
"thou canst ask not only him who is the servant, but 
"thou shalt also see his God, and become a participator 
"in his glory, and He will deliver thee from all evil. 
The merchant saith to them, "My brethren, I beseech 
"you to bring me with you to-morrow that I may become 
"a Christian, and 1 will give each of you a basket of 
"money, for my heart inclineth greatly to the object of 
"your worship." And the men said to him, "Thou canst 
"not become like unto ourselves until our Father the 
"Bishop hath prayed over thee, [p. 68 and hath sancti- 



THE ENCOMIUM OF SEVER U.S. 

*-/ vJ 



"fied thee and baptized thce in the name of the Lather, and 
"the^Son, and the Holy Ghost; then wilt thou have become 
"a Christian. But wait until our Father the Bishop hath 
"a convenient season, and then we will take thee to him, 
"and he will make thee like unto ourselves;" and he did 
as they spake to him, and he waited that day. 

And on the morrow he came to them and said, "My 
"good brethren, take me with you, that the God of Whom 
"ye spake may give you your reward;" and the two 
believing- men took him to the Bishop and shewed him 
everything which had taken place. And the Bishop said 
to the merchant, "From what country comest thou?" and 
the merchant said, "I am from the country of Kntike." 
And the Bishop said to him, "Art thou persuaded to 
"become a Christian?" and the merchant said, "Yea, of 
"a certainty, O my Father, for by what I have seen and 
"heard in this city it seemeth good to me to become a 
Christian." And the Bishop said to him, "What god 
dost thou worship?" and the merchant said, "I worship 
"the Sun". And the Bishop said to him, "When the sun 
"hath set and hath gone clown into the earth, if a 
"necessity arise where canst thou find him to help thee?" 
The merchant said to him, "My Father, be graciously 
"pleased to help me, and baptize me, and I entreat thee 
"to make me a Christian like all the men of this city." 
p. 69] And the Bishop said to him, "Hast thou a wife 
"or children?" and the merchant said to him, "My wife 
"and my children are at home in my city." And the 
Bishop said to him, "If it be so, we will not invoke 
"God s blessing upon thee, lest the minds of thy wife and 
"children be not in accordance with thine, and there 
"arise a stumblingblock between you and between us,

"and it happen that either she is separated from thee, 
"or she causeth thee to apostatize from the service of 
"God and from the baptism which thou wilt have received 
"for the first transgression took place through a wo- 
-man but if her heart be in accordance with thine, come, 
"and I will make thee a Christian." When the merchant 
heard these things he rejoiced greatly, and having been 
blessed by the hand of the Bishop, he came forth and 
made ready to depart to his city. 

And when the Devil, the hater of all good, knew 
that the man had given his heart to God he was envious 
of him, and it came to pass that when Ketson had come 
upon the sea, he raised up a might} storm, and he made 
the waves to rise up round about the ship, so that all 
those who were therein were well nigh drowned. Then 
the merchant cried out, saying. "O my Lord Jesus Christ, 
"help me in this great need, and I will believe in the 
"great glory which 1 have seen in the shrine ot the holy 
"Archangel Michael, and henceforth, until the day of our 
"death, |p. 70 1 and all my house will be Christians." 
And straightway at that moment a voice came to him, 
saying, "Be not afraid, for no evil shall betide thee;" 
and immediately the crests of the waves bowed down 
and sank to rest, and the ship righted herself and sailed 
along smoothly, and by the command of God the merchant 
arrived in his own city, and no evil happened to him. 
And when he had gone into his house he rejoiced 
with exceeding great joy, and he told his household of 
the marvellous thing which had happened to him in the 
ship, and of all that had befallen him in the city of Ka- 
lonia. And he spake to them, saying, "Verily, the sun 
"which we worship is not a god, but he is the servant

"of the great God of heaven, Jesus Christ, the Son of 
the living- God, Who He is, and it is He who j s the 
God of the universe, and it is through Him that -ill 
"things exist;" and he told them also concerning the 
honour of the holy Archangel Michael, his mighty son 
and they marvelled greatly. Then the man turned to 
his wife, and said to her, "If thou wilt be obedient unto 
"me, arise, come with me, and let us become Christians, 
"and let us make ourselves servants of Christ, and let 
"us not halt between two opinions. If, however, thou wilt 
"not be persuaded I will not force thee. Behold I have 
"eight thousand mithkals remaining to me, and of these 
"I will give thee one thousand, and thou shalt abide in 
"thine own worship; but as for me, I will go and receive 
"remission for my sins." [p. 71 And his wife said to him 
gladly, "Verily, my master and brother, whatsoever way 
"thou goest, that will I travel with thee, and whatsoever 
"death thou shalt die, that will I myself die;" so they 
made everything ready, and they embarked and came 
to the city of Kalonia, and the man marvelled how God 
had helped them. And they went to the two men whom 
[Ketson had] first [seen], and they saluted them, and made 
known to them that they had come to be made Christians 
they took them to the Bishop, and shewed him, say 
ing, "This is the man who came recently to be made a 
:hristian, and behold, he hath now come with his wife 
"and child to become Christians." And the Bishop rejoiced 
with an exceeding great joy at the conversion of their 
souls, and when they had been brought in to him he said, 
Do ye in very truth wish to become Christians?" And 
the merchant answered humbly, "Yea, by God s will, and 
"by thy holy prayers, O Father." Then the Bishop caused

them to make ready a Jordan in the shrine of the holy 
Archangel Michael, and he instructed the man, and his 
wife, and his four sons, and their servants, and he bap 
tized them in the name of the Father, and the Son, and 
the Holy Ghost. Now the name of the merchant was 
at first Ketson, but the Bishop changed it, and called 
his name Matthew, |p. 72 1 and his \vife he called Irene; 
and he called the first of the four sons John, the second, 
Stephen, the third, Joseph, and the fourth, Daniel. And he 
made read}- the Communion and gave to them of the holy 
Mysteries, the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ. 
And after their baptism they tarried a month with the 
Bishop, and he instructed them in the things of their 
upright faith. And Matthew the merchant, by reason of 
the exceeding great joy which had come to him, gave 
six hundred milhkals to the shrine of the Archangel as 
thankso-ivino- offering for his salvation. And they re-

ceived blessing at the hands of the Bishop before return 
ing to their own country, and they bade farewell to the 
chief men of the city and to the law-loving men with 
great joy, and by the will of God they returned to their 
country, being guided and directed by the holy Arch 
angel Michael. 

And when the}- had gone into their house the} made 
a great feast for their people, and they distributed great 
charity to the needy, and widows, and orphans, and then- 
village marvelled at them, and their name was in the 
mouth of every one; and the} made their country to 
shine by their good deeds. 

And it came to pass after these things, when two 
months had passed by, that the excellent man Matthew 
went to his rest; he had come to work in the vineyard] 



TIIK ENCOMIUM OF SEVEKUS. - (; * 

at the eleventh hour, [p. 73] ! Hlt through the prayers of 
the holy Archangel Michael he received the wages of 
the whole day. And his little sons and their mother 
ceased not from the good things which they were wont 
to do in abundance while their father was alive. Now 
the Devil and his fiends could not bear to sec the good 
deeds which these holy people were doing, and he stirred 
up the people of their city against them, and he made 
them to hate them with a great hatred, and at length 
they rose up against them and seized their possessions 
by violence, and the things which were in their store 
house. Then John said to his mother and brethren, 
"Behold, ye see how much they have afflicted us since 
"our father died, arise now and let us leave this place, 
"and go to the royal city, and live there; for it is written 
"in the holy Gospel, If they persecute you in one city, 
" flee to another . 1 And behold they have persecuted 
"and afflicted us here; but God s will be done." So they 
arose secretly, and took what things remained unto them, 
and they went into the royal city, and lived there, saying, 
"May the God of the Archangel Michael be our helper; 
and they multiplied the charities which they were wont 
to do of old. 

And again the Devil could not bear it, but was dis 
turbed when he saw these pious people giving their 
charities in faith now he knew not that the holy Arch 
angel Michael would put him to shame and at length 
he roared like a lion. [p. 74] And it came to pass that 
when a few days had gone by, the watchmen of the 
city went in and robbed the house of one of the chief 

1 St. Matthew x. 23. 



6o* SAINT MICHAEL TIIK AKCHANCKL. 

nobles of the city, and they carried off much booty; and 
the nobleman told the governor who was over the city, 
and he made an enquiry into the matter by the hand of 
the controller of the city, who straightway laid hold of 
the watchmen and compelled them to find for him the 
nobleman s property. And while they were disturbed 
concerning this matter, behold the Devil took the form 
of a man, and went about throughout the city, and cried 
out, savin ", "I know who stole the property of Sylon the 
"nobleman, for I saw these four strange young men, who 
"came here a few days ago, go into the house, and 
"plunder it, and we know of a truth that this hath been 
"their business from the time when they lived in their 
"country." And when the men of the city heard these 
things they told the governor, and straightway they 
dragged them along by the hair of their head by the 
governor s command, and brought them in before him. 
Now they dragged them along without mere) , and their 
mother followed after them weeping, and she comforted 
them, saying, "Fear ye not, my children, for God, in 
"Whom we believe, and I lis holy Archangel Michael are 
"able to deliver you from all evil, p. 75] and from those 
"who speak falsely against you for His sake." And as 
she spake these things a voice came to them out of 
heaven, saying, "Fear ye not, for 1 will not allow any 
"evil to betide you: I am Michael, and 1 will watch over 
"you to guard you from all evil." 

And it came to pass that while they were standing 
before the governor who was questioning them, the 
Archangel | Michael) came and stood a little way off in the 
form of a patrician of the empire; and when the governor 
saw him he rose and stood up and besought him, saying, 



TIIJ-; KXroMIUM OF SKVKRUS. 



"Prithee come, sit clown, and listen to this dispute." And 
when he had sat down the governor made them bring 
the four young men before him, and lie said to then?, 
"He (1 uick and give back to the nobleman the stolen 
"things before I indict punishment upon you." And they 
answered and said, "As the Lord God of the Christians 
liveth, and by the glory of His holy Archangel Michael 
"we have never taken part in this matter." And the 
Archangel Michael said to the governor, "I am sure that 
"the truth will be manifest by these means. Let them 
take the youngest brother of these men, and carry him 
"into the house of the chief watchman, whose heart is 
inflamed against these men, and let him cry out, saying, 
in the name of my Lord Jesus Christ, let the stolen 
things which belong to Sylon the nobleman, p 76 1 on 
" account of which they have accused us, appear; and 
"straightway the truth will be made manifest." And 
straightway the governor commanded them to take the 
little child into the house of the chief watchman, as the 
Archangel Michael had said, and he cried out, saying 
"hi the name of my Lord Jesus Christ and of the hofy 
Archangel Michael, let the things stolen from Sylon 
the nobleman appear." And straightway a voice came, 
and everyone heard it, saying-, "Go down into the cellar, 
"and ye will find everything; these young men are inno- 
"cent of the offence;" and they went down straightway 
into the cellar, and found all the stolen things. And 
when they told the governor what had happened he 
marvelled greatly, and when he turned round to tell him 
that had taken the form of a patrician, that is to say 
Michael, what had happened, he did not know where he 
had gone; and he marvelled greatly. And he set the

young men free, and they went to their house glorifying 
God and His holy Archangel Michael; and these pious 
people did not cease from doing the good deeds which 
they were wont to do unto everyone, and everyone 

j * ^ 

marvelled at their good life. 

And it came to pass some time after these things 
had happened that a certain man accused two men be 
fore the governor of not having paid the debt awarded 
by a former judgment, and the governor gave the two 
men over to certain soldiers that they might compel 
them each to pay one hundred mithkals, [p. 77] but they 
had not the wherewithal to pay. And it happened op 
portunely that the good man John met them, and when 
he saw the soldiers mercilessly driving them along with 
blows, he said to the soldiers, "For what reason do ye 
"beat these men?" And the soldiers said. "We have 
"seixed them because each oweth] one hundred mitJikahr 
And John said to them, "Will they be set free if the two 
"hundred inithkals be paid?" and the soldiers answered, 
"Yea, but if they pay not the money they will be slain." 
Then John entreated the soldiers, saying, "Wait a little, 
"and 1 will come back to you;" and he went into his 
house and brought out two hundred mithkals^ and he 
gave them to the soldiers, and they set the two men free, 
and he also gave unto each of the four soldiers, who 
had been set over the two men, a mithkal. 

And again the 1 )evil, the enemy of all truth, could 
not bear to see this], and was tilled with envy against 
the pious brethren because of their good works, and he 
stirred up a great and exceedingly hard and severe trial, 
which was this. And it came to pass after these things 
that a certain man in the city had invited some friends 



THE ENCOMIUM OK SEVEKUS. 

and neighbours into his house now it was eventide- 
and this man lived nigh unto the house of the pious 
brethren; and when they had eaten and drunk, a certain 
man rose up to go to his house. And as he was walking 
across the open ground of the city, a scorpion stung hint 
and he fell down and died immediately, and no man 
knew what had happened to him. [p. 78] And when the 
watchmen of the city were going about on their rounds 
together, they found the dead man, and they brought 
him into the light, and although they examined the body 
the)- knew not what had happened to him; and they 
made him ready for burial and when it was morning 
the>- carried him to the sepulchre. 

And the Devil, taking upon himself the form of a 
man, cried out to the whole city, saying, "This wicked 
"murder of the man who is dead the cause of his 
"death and his murderer being known unto no man- 
cannot have been committed by any one except those 
"four strange young men, and I am | ready to bear 
"witness to this fact." And these words spread throuo-h- 
out the whole city, and the general went and told the 
governor Kesanthos, who straightway commanded and 
they brought the four young men [before him] with their 
hands tied behind them, and chains round their necks. 
And as they were bringing them before the governor, a 
voice came to them, saying, "Fear ye not, "for behold 
"the time of tribulation passeth by, and peace shall come 
"unto you from God;" and they set them before the 
governor as condemned criminals. And behold straight 
way the holy Archangel Michael took the form of a 
great general of the Greek Emperor, and when Kesanthos 
saw him, he rose up and stood upon his feet before him; 



64* SAINT .MICIIAF.L TIIK ARCIIANCJCL. 

and when he had come up to him they sat down together. 
And when the Archangel Michael sa\v the young men 
standing there, p. 79 he said to Kesanthos the governor, 
"\\hat is the business of these young men?" and the 
governor told him what had happened. And Michael 
said to him, "It is not known then, who slew the man?" 
and the governor said to him, "They have brought these 
"young men in to me, saying that they slew him." And 
Michael said to him, it seemeth to me that if the matter 
"be thus, and that a man hath died, we cannot know 
"who hath slain him until we bring the dead man here 
"in our midst, and we ask him, and he tell us and shew 
"us who hath slain him; so then if thou wishest to know 
"the truth let them bring the dead man himself here, 
"and we will question him, and he will speak to us, and 
"shew us who hath slain him." And straightway the 
governor commanded, and they brought the dead man 
into the midst of them . And the Archangel Michael 
said unto Daniel the youngest brother of the pious men, 
"Go, say to the dead man, In the name of my Lord 
"Jesus Christ, the God of heaven and earth, show us 
"what did happen unto thee;" and the child did so. 
Then God, \Yho loveth mankind, and Who wisheth to 
make His holy name glorious in all places, so that men 
may believe in Him, made the soul of the man to return 
to his body, and he came to life for the salvation of 
the governor and of the whole multitude of the people 
of that country. And the man cried out, saying, "Woe 
"unto thee, O Kesanthos the governor, for thou hast been 
"bold to sit down with the holy Archangel Michael, [p. 80 
"the general- in-chief of the powers of heaven; and, more- 
"over, these men who have been accused are innocent

"of the offence, and arc just men, for it is not they who 
"have slain me, but the scorpion which bit me, and caused 
"me to die. And it is by reason of the excellence of 
these men that hath happened unto thee the <r rea t

"the offences of your previous life. And as for me, a 
"great act of grace hath been shewn unto me, for through 
"these just men I have seen the Archangel Michael " And 
straightway the Archangel Michael went up into heaven 
with great glory, and the governor and all the multitude 
saw him go up into heaven, taking up with him the soul 
of the dead man; and the governor and all they who 
were with him were in exceeding great fear. 

And after a long time the heart of the governor 
became quiet after the fearful, and mighty, and marvellous 
thing which he had seen, and he rose up and kissed 
John, saying, [p. 81] "Blessed be the hour in which ye 
"came ^ into this city. We beseech you to show us your 
God in Whom ye believe, and we ourselves will believe 
"in Him for our salvation." And John said to them, 
"We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the 
"living God;" and the governor and all the multitude 
cried out, saying, "Verily, Jesus Christ is the living God, 
"and there is no other God besides Him." And John 
said to the governor, "Arise, and write to Constantine, 
: Emperor of the Greeks, and tell him of everything 
Ithat hath happened]; and entreat him to send to us 
"one of the Bishops of your country that he may instruct 



66* SAINT MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL. 

"you in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of 
the I loly Ghost." And Kesanthos the governor wrote 
to the Emperor Constantine, saying, "Kesanthos, whom 
"men call governor, dareth to write to the mighty Ruler 
"and Emperor, Constantine, the servant of Jesus Christ, 
"sending greeting. A might)- act of grace hath come 
"to us from the good God, Who hath had us in re- 
"membrance, and 1 le hath brought us from the service of 
"polluted idols, and hath turned us to Himself by His 
"great and exceeding goodness through the prayers of 
"the holy Archangel Michael, and we have been ac- 
"counted worthy to see him with our eyes, and he made 
"a dead man to speak with us mouth to mouth, after 
"he was dead, and afterwards he went up to heaven 
"with great glory, and we all saw him. And further- 
"more, p. 82] we entreat thy majesty to send unto us 
"one of the Bishops who are with tliee, that he may 
"enlighten us in the right faith, and that he ma)- shew 
"us the way wherein we should travel unto God, and 
"that he may give unto us the holy sign of the Cross. 
"And if thou wilt do this for us, thou wilt receive a great 
"crown from Christ by reason of this tiling; may the 
"God-loving Emperor be strong through the strength of 
"Christ the King of the Universe." 

And the Emperor Constantine received the letter with 
great readiness, and he read it and marvelled greatly at 
what had happened, and he glorified God. And lie wrote 
to Saint John, the Archbishop of Ephesus, with great 
solicitude, saying, "First of all I kiss thy holy hands 
"which hold the flesh of the Son of God in truth. Great 
"joy hath come unto us from God, and behold, we send 
"unto thee to tell thee also thereof, for we know that 



THE KNCOMfUM OF SEVKRUS. 



"thou wilt rejoice exceedingly. I desire that thou wilt under- 
"take a small toil-now thou art prompt to labour with 
all thy heart, for thou knowest that thy labour shall not 
"be in vain -and that thou wilt do it for the sake of 
-hrist Who hath suffered for the race of man. Trouble 
thou thyself and go unto the city of Entias, and heal 
those who are sick therein in the name of Christ, and 
lead them away from the service of ministering unto 
"pol uted idols, and baptize them in the name of the 
"bather, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost; and 
this shall be for thee an acceptable thing with God and 
iis holy angels, [p. 83 May we both be strong throuo-h 
"the strength of Christ our God." 

And the Emperor Constantine sent this letter to Abba 
John, Archbishop of Ephesus, together with the letter of 
Kesanthos the governor; and when the Archbishop had 
read the letters he rejoiced greatly at the conversion of 
the whole country. Then he took with him two deacons 
an elder, and a reader, and three singers of Psalms 
twelve workers, and he took with him for the stab- 
lishing of the altar a golden table, and four cups of silver 
three cups of gold, and a cloth made of finest bys- 
sus, and a covering made wholly of silk, and the four 
ospels, and the Psalter, and the Epistles of Paul, and 
the Acts, and the Catholic Epistle of St. James, and in 
short everything necessary for a church; and they prayed 
and set out upon the road rejoicing. And when they 
had drawn nigh unto the city, the men thereof told the 
governor of the arrival of the Archbishop and of those 
who were with him; and the governor, and John, and 
all the people of the city came forth to meet the Arch 
bishop, and when they came up to him the governor 



68* SAINT MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL. 

and all the multitude bowed clown before him, and were 
blessed by him. And the governor told the Archbishop 
everything that had happened, and he showed him John, 
saying, "Through this man and his brethren hath God 
"shown mercy unto us;" and thus they went into the 
city in great peace, [p. 84] And the governor entreated 
the Archbishop |to come with him, and brought him 
into the palace, for as yet there was no church built in 
the city. And on the morrow the Archbishop said to 
the governor, "Let us mark out a place for a church," 
and the governor said to him, "My father, I have here 
"a new site upon which they were going to build, let us 
"look at it, and if it be suitable we will make a church 
"there." And the Archbishop and the governor went 
there together, and they looked at the place upon which 
thej- were going to build; and it pleased the Archbishop. 
Then the governor made the herald to cry out through 
out all the city, saying, "Let every man come, and labour 
"at the building of the church," and straightway the whole 
city was gathered together to work at the church, whether 
it were nobleman, or whether it were poor man, and even 
the governor himself laboured with his own hands, and 
everyone believed that he would receive a blessing from 
Christ. And by the will of God they finished the building 
in sixteen days, and the Archbishop consecrated the church 
to the name of the Holy Virgin, the God-bearer Mary. 

And when the Archbishop saw the great multitude 
who wished to be baptized, he said to the governor, 
"Where shall we bapti/e this multitude?" Now a church 
with a place for water for baptism therein had not yet 
been built. And the wise John answered and said to 
the governor and the Archbishop, "The pool of water 



THE ENCOMIUM OF SEVERUS. 60* 

"which lieth to the east of the city is, I say, suitable for 
"this great honour." |p. 85] And straightway a voice came 
from heaven, and everyone heard it, saying, "This is the 
"place, which hath been set apart by God, O John, son 
"of the apostle;" and the Archbishop, and the governor, 
and all the multitude who heard this marvelled. And 
the Archbishop and the governor commanded, and all 
the multitude were gathered together to the place of 
the pool of water, and the Archbishop prayed over the 
water on every side of the pool. Now at that time a 
great and wonderful thing happened, for when the Arch 
bishop came to the consecration the whole multitude heard 
voices in the water which repeated the consecration with 
the Archbishop. And when the Archbishop had finished 
the prayers, he commanded that all the multitude should 
go into the water, and they all leaped into the water, 
and cried out, saying, "We receive baptism in the name 
"of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost." 
And when the governor and all the multitude had been 
baptized, the Archbishop took them to the church, and 
ordained John to be [their] bishop, and one of his three 
brethren he ordained elder, and the other two he made 
deacons. And a son of the governor called Echillas he 
made deacon, and all the multitude rejoiced in God. 

Then the Archbishop was careful concerning the Offer 
ing, and he laid it up upon the altar, [p. 86] and made 
the Offering. And the governor and all the multitude 
marvelled at what they saw and at what they heard, for 
they had never before heard such things, and they had 
never before seen the like, for this was the first time 
that the Offering had been offered up in that country; 
and when they had all partaken of the Holy Mysteries, 



70* SAINT MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL. 

the Archbishop pronounced over them the benediction of 
peace, and each one went to his own house. And the 
Archbishop tarried with them a month of days, and he 
instructed them, and taught them the ordinances of the 
Church; and afterwards lie went to his city with great joy. 

And Kesanthos the governor, and all the multitude 
of the city glorified God. and the}- paid honour unto 
Saint John the Bishop, and unto his brethren, for they 
grew in the doctrine of God. And after a few days the 
holy Bishop said to the governor, "Let us build a church 
"in the name of the hoi}- Archangel Michael," and the 
governor said to him, "Do whatsoever thy soul desireth, 
"O our father, for we are read} to listen unto thee." 
Then the hoi} Bishop John laid the foundation of the 
church, and the whole city helped him, and he finished 
it with great zeal, and he put on its coping-stone in 
eight months; p. 87] and the holy Bishop John conse 
crated the shrine on the twelfth day ol the month Athor, 
in the name of the Archangel Michael. Now this festival 
of the Archangel Michael was a double one; for it was 
the festival of the Archangel Michael, and also the festival 
of the consecration of the church. 

And it came to pass after the Communion that the 
Bishop, and the governor, and all the multitude went 
together into the city to the temple of Zeus, and they 
burnt it with fire; and the dumb fiend which was in the 
statue cried out, saying, "Thou inflictest great pain upon 
"me, O John, for thou hast cast me out of my dwelling- 
"place." And the governor caused a large church to be 
built on the spot where the temple had stood, and he 
dedicated it to the name of the Apostles; and Saint John 
confirmed everyone in the faith, and everyone praised him. 



THE EXCOMIUM OF SEVERUS. 7 j * 

When the Emperor Constantine heard concerning the 
d deeds which John was doing, he glorified God and 
he wrote to John a letter in which he besought him to 
ess him and his empire, and called him a new Daniel 
the destroyer of idols; and the whole country of Entias 
ew daily m doctrine all the days of Saint John, through 
the multitude of the miracles which God wrought bv 
his hand. 

^e see, then, O my beloved, the power of God and 
loving-kindness of the holy Archangel Michael. In 881 
In the growth of all the seeds of the field we find the 
entreaty of Michael, and through the prayers of Michael 
trees bear fruit. In the ships, whether they be sailino- 
the sea, or anchored in port we find the entreaty of 
In the ascetics who live in the mountains we 
fmd the entreaty of Michael, and he giveth them strength 
to live their ascetic life. In the assembly of the monks 
we hnd the entreaty of Michael, who is a peacemaker 
m their midst. In the prayers of the Bishops, and elders 
and deacons at the altar we find the entreaty of Michael 
\\ ith the sick we find the entreaty of Michael, who o-ivcth 
them strength, and healeth them. We find the entreaty 
of Michael with those who are afflicted at the tribunal 
and he becometh their helper. We find the entreaty of 
Michael the Archangel with those who are siifferimr 
punishment, and he becometh their helper. In short, to 
those who live he giveth strength in their time of 
need, and for those who are dead, he prayeth God to 
shew mercy unto them. Who is there among all the 
righteous unto whom the Archangel Michael did not go, 
and to whom he did not give strength in all his times 
of need? Among the martyrs who is there unto whom 



72* SAINT MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL. 

the Archangel Michael did not go and deliver out of all 
his affliction and torture, and o-ive strength? 

o <* 

And behold, O my beloved, we know the love of 
God towards man, and we know the prayers of the 
Archangel Michael, who hath become an ambassador for 
all mankind, [p. 89 1 for whom he prayeth to God the 
Father that 1 le may shew mercy unto them all, and make 
their paths straight, and let us give unto him the things 
which he desireth, that he may bestir himself for us on 
account of them, and that he may love us exceedingly, 
and ma} pray to Gocl for us. Let us love each other 
in the love ot God, and let us live in the unity of bro 
therly love, and let no slander be upon our lips, for 
slander is a poisoned dart. Fornication is a stinking sin, 
and one which is greatly hated by God and His angels, 
and it is the poverty and death of the soul and of the 
body. Fornication is the friend of the Devil, it is the 
enemy of God and 1 lis angels, it is hated of Christians, 
and it is the friend of vain-glory. 

And now, my children, let us put away from us all 
impure ways, and let us walk in the straight paths of 
virtue; let us walk in sinlessness and in unspottedness, 
lor a pure marriage never polluteth a man. Consider 
Moses, who spake with God five hundred and seventy- 
times, for he had a wife and children, and these pre 
vented him not from ministering in the Holy of Holies. 
But let us not multiply our words overmuch concerning 
these things, for the testimony of the things which are 
old and of those which are new sufticeth us; and finally 
let us end our discourse and come to him whose festival 
we celebrate this day, the hoi)- Archangel Michael. This fes 
tival to-day hath not need of the money of him that eateth,

P. 93] The Encomium which was composed by Apa 
Eustathius, i >ishop of Trake, the Island to which the Em 
press banished Saint John Chrysostom, and where he 
finished his course. It was composed for the festival of 
the holy Archangel Michael, which took place on the 
twelfth day of the month Paoni, and was recited by the 
blessed man before he laid down his body. And he 
spake, moreover, in this Encomium concerning the right 
eous man whose name was Aristarchus, and concerning 
his God-loving wife, the honourable lady Euphemia, and 
he likewise spake;, at the end of this Encomium, a few 
things of Saint John Chrysostom which glorify the holy 
Trinity. In the peace of God. Amen. 

"I will open my mouth in parables, and with my 
"tongue will I declare hidden tilings," 1 according to the 
words of the sacred Psalmist David, the father of Christ, 
according to the flesh, p. 94 and I will cry out louder 
than any sounding reed, or instrument of music, or cym 
bal, or harp, and I myself will proclaim with the righteous 
man, saying. "The angel of God encampeth round about 
"those that fear Him, and delivereth them;" 2 and let us 
also add the words of the prophet, and say, "This is 



1 Psalm Ixxviii. 2. 2 Psalm xxxiv. 7. 



THE ENCOMIUM OF EUSTATIHUS. 

"the clay which He hath made, let us gather together, and 
"rejoice, and be glad in it," 1 not with noise* only, but 
with the joy of gladness which exceecleth all other joy, 
for we shall see the Creator of all things assembled with 
us this day at the feast of Mis mighty and holy Arch 
angel Michael, the general of the hosts of the heavens. 
Who is there among us that will not celebrate this festival 
when he seeth that the King of Kings, and the God of 
all flesh hath come into this house to-day to do honour 
unto Michael, His mighty and glorious General, the ruler 
of light? And who is there among us that will not put 
on glorious apparel to come into this holy house to-day, 
to eat of the good things which the King and the King s 
son have prepared for us at the feast, the feast of the 
holy Archangel Michael? The things which are set before 
us to eat this day are not after the flesh, the pleasure 
of which ye will forget after ye have eaten of them, but 
that which is made ready for us this day is the Body 
of God, which lie took upon Himself in the womb of 
the holy Virgin Mary, p. 95] the spotless Lamb, Who 
gave Himself for us to deliver us from the Adversary. 
The wine which is set before us this day is not material 
wine, of which, when we have taken, we become drunken, 
and things which are unseemly happen in us, but it is the 
Blood from the side of God the Word on the Cross, 
which the soldier pierced, and He poured it out for us 
to cleanse us from our sins; and it is not pieces of meat 
which, if left for a day or two, perish and putrefy, that 
are set before us this day, but the thoughts of the Holy 
Scriptures, which shed abroad glory though they last for

ever. O who can [not] understand with his mind a celestial 
being this day, when he seeth the mighty joy which is 
spread abroad in heaven and upon earth by reason of 
the commemoration of the holy Archangel Michael? Let 
us turn, no\v, to the mighty deeds and miracles which 
have come to pass through the Archangel Michael, in 
whose shrine -the shrine which we have built to his holy 
name we are to-day gathered together to celebrate his 
noble commemoration. 

Do ye not call to mind the honourable lady Euphemia, 
the wife of Aristarchus, the governor whom the pious 
Emperor I lonorius appointed over the Island of Trake? 
Now, ye all know, O Christ-loving people, that this ge 
neral was an exceedingly pious man, unto which fact was 
borne witness by everyone, p. 96 1 and his prayers and 
his alms came before God like those of Cornelius 1 of old. 
And this noble man, Aristarchus the governor, from the 
lime when he received holy baptism at the hands of our 
glorious father and teacher, John the Great, did not cease 
to make gifts and offerings on the twelfth day of every 
month in the name of the holy Archangel Michael, and 
on the twenty-hrst day of every month in the name of 
the holy Virgin Mary, and on the twenty-ninth day of 
ever} month (which is the day of the birth of our God 

Jesus Christ, when men make innumerable offering s and 

* t> 

give alms in commemoration of God the Word), and thus 
this righteous man continued to do for a long time. And 
it came to pass after these things, when his course was 
ended, and he was about to depart, after the manner of 
all men, unto Christ, that he called his wife, the honour 
able lady Euphemia, unto him, and said to her, "Behold, 
1 Acts x. 31. 



THE ENCOMIUM OF F.USTATHIUS. 7-* 

"my sister, thou secst that my course is run, and that I 
must depart unto God after the manner of all my fathers 
"ion thyself hast heard the doctrines of life with which 
we have been charged by the thrice-blessed John, through 
whom this .hole island hath become enlightened and 
h-ith learned to know God, and thou hast with thine 
own ears heard him say in thine own house, There is 
h ng so great as charity , [p. 97] aiK ,, , M sha j, 

"make a man glorious at the judgment , and, in short 
the other words of consolation which that mio-htv 
naii John spake unto us for the salvation of our souls 
And moreover, behold, I charge thee this day, and I 
God between thee and me, before I go forth from 
this world, that thou cease not to do the tilings which 
we now do on the twelfth day of each month (which 
is the day of the holy Archangel Michael), and on the 
"twenty-first day (which is the day of the Queen, the 
Mother of the King of Kings), and on the twenty-ninth 
day also (which is the day of the birth of God the 
fake heed, then, that thou despisest not the 
"offering of the holy Archangel Michael (for it is he who 
-l.rayeth for all men), that he may pray for us before 
>d, that God may shew loving mercy unto us, and 

receive unto Himself my miserable soul." 
And that prudent woman said unto her husband () 
"my master and brother, as God in Whom we have be- 
ed liveth, I will not neglect to do the things which 
ou hast commanded me to do, nay, 1 will add oreatlv 
them; but there is a matter on my mind, which I 
wish thee to fulfil for me, and to complete before thou 
ayest down the body;" and Aristarchus said to her 
Whatsoever thou wishest, tell me, and by the will of 



SAINT MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL. 

"God I will perform it for thee." [p. 98] Euphcmia saith 
to him, "I wish that thou wouldst command a painter to 
"paint for me the picture of the holy Archangel Michael 
"upon a wooden tablet, and that thou wouldst give it to 
"me that I may place it in my bed-chamber where I sleep. 
"And I wish thee to commit me into his hands as an 
"object of trust, so that when thou shalt have departed 
"from the body he may become my guardian, and deliver 
"me from every evil thought of Satan; for when thou 
"shalt have gone forth from the body I shall eat my 
"bread in tears and with a sorrowful heart, because from 
"the very moment that a woman s husband departeth 
"from her, she hath no longer any hope in life, and she 
"is like unto a body without a head, and the body with- 
"out a head is without a soul and it perisheth of its own 
"accord. And moreover, the wise man Paul hath said, 
"I he head of a woman is her husband , 1 and a woman 
"without a husband is like unto a ship without a rudder, 
"which is ready to sink, together with the merchandise 
"with which it is laden. And now, () my master and 
"brother, just as in times past thou hast never caused 
"me sorrow [by refusing! < m ything which I have asked 
"from thee, cause me not now sorrow [by refusing this 
"thing also, and perad venture the holy Archangel Michael 
"will protect me, for I have no [other j hope here, but Hook 
"for the mercy of God and of his holy Archangel Michael." 
p. 99 And when the general heard these things lie 
made haste to perform that which she had asked from 
him, and he straightway commanded them to bring a 
cunning painter, and he commanded him to paint the 

1 Ephesians v. 23. 



THE ENCOMIUM OF EUSTATIIIUS. 79* 

picture of the holy Archangel Michael upon a wooden 
tablet, and to lay upon it a plate of fine gold inlaid with 
precious stones; and when the painter had finished it 
Aristarchus gave it to Euphemia, and she rejoiced over 
it like him that found much treasure, even as it is writ 
ten, 1 and she said unto him, "O my master and brother, 
"let thy mercy be with me, and do thou gratify my wish 
"in this thing also, so that when my courage faileth, and 
"I become weak and helpless, no treacherous plots may 
"rise up against me when thou hast laid down the body." 
And Aristarchus said to her, "Whatsoever thou askest I 
"am ready to perform for thee, for thou knowest that I 
"never grieved thee at any time about anything." Eu 
phemia saith to him, "I wish thee to commit me into 
"the hands of the holy Archangel Michael whom thou 
"hast had painted upon this wooden tablet, and also to 
"entreat him on my behalf that he may become my 
"guardian until the clay of my death; for when thou shalt 
"have gone forth from the body I shall have no hope in life 
"except in God and His Archangel Michael, for thou knowest 
"that a widow eateth her bread with sighs and tears." 

| p. 100 Now when the general had heard these things 
he became sad at heart by reason of the melancholy 
words which she spake to him, but he marvelled at her 
great faith in the holy Archangel Michael. And at length 
he took her hand and laid it upon the figure of the holy 
Archangel Michael which had been painted upon the 
wooden tablet, and he cried out, saying, "O thou holy 
Archangel Michael, who didst slay the serpent of old, 
"who didst cast out the haughty rebel against his God, 



1 St. Matthew xiii. 44.

"and didst hurl him chained into the fiery pool filled with

Michael would watch over her. 

And it came to pass after these things that she took 
the figure of the image of the Archangel which had been 
Painted for her. p. IO i| and she placed it in the bed- 
camber in which she slept, and she used to offer up to 
igure precious incense, and a lamp was burning be 
lt by day and by night continually, and she used to 
pray unto it three times a day and ask it to help her; 
and after these things God visited the pious general 
starchus, whose name we have mentioned a little way 
back, and he departed the way of all men. Now the 
wise and honourable lady Euphemia, the wife of Aris- 
tarchus the general, ceased not to give the alms which 
: was wont to give, nor to make the offerings which 
the general used to make in his lifetime before he died 
the name of the holy Archangel Michael, and she 
hastened to increase those which were made in former 
times while her husband was alive.

And the Devil, who hath hated every good tiling in 
our race from the beginning, could not bear to see the 
noble deeds which this woman wrought in the name of 
the holy Archangel Michael, and he was envious of her, 
and wished to destroy the reward which she hoped to 
receive thereby from God. And it came to pass one 
day that he took the form of a nun, p. 102 and having 
put on golden 1 apparel now devils went with him in the 
form of virgins he came and stood at the door of Eu- 
phemia s house, and he sent in her servant to her, sav 
ing, "Go and tell the honourable lady Euphemia, the wife 
"of Aristarchus the general, behold a virgin nun standeth 
"at the door wishing to make obeisance unto thee, and 
"her daughters also are with her." And when the prudent 
woman heard these words she came out to the fourth 
door of her house, and she commanded them to bring 
her in to her, thinking- that she was in truth a nun; and 
when the servants came out and saw the Devil standing 
there wearing a false garb, they made obeisance unto

"palace and the Emperor loveth him;" and straightway 
he shewed her many ornaments of gold and much gold 
and silver to seduce her to his evil design. And^Eu- 
phemia restrained herself greatly, and answered very 
quietly, "How can I do such a thing as this of my own 
"will? But first of all let me go and take counsel with 
"my guardian, to whose care my blessed husband com- 
"mitted me before he went forth from the body, and if 
"he commandeth me to live with a husband, then I will 
"do so without hesitation, but if he doth not command 
"me to do so I will never do so of my own free will." 
And the Devil answered, "Who is this guardian?" 
and Euphemia said, "Behold, he hath been with me in 
"my bed-chamber day and night from the time when my 
"blessed husband committed me to his care, until now, 
"watching over me." And the Devil answered, and said 
unto her, "Dost thou not know that if thou failest to keep 
" one of | the commandments of God in thy heart, thou 
"wilt become guilty of offending in all? p. 105 And more- 
"over, God hath said, Whosoever shall offend in one 
"commandment shall be guilty of them all, 1 and thou 
"knowest that God hateth falsehood exceedingly. And 
"again David saith in the fifth Psalm, God shall destroy 
"everyone that speaketh falsehood , 2 and if thou speakest 
"falsehood God will destroy thee speedily. Didst thou 
"not say unto me a short time since, From the day on 
"which my husband went forth from the body until now, 
" l no man hath passed through the door of my bed-cham- 
ber, not even my servants ?" And Euphemia answered, 
"What I say is true, and there is no falsehood in my

"\\ords, O my noble sister. 1 swear to thee by (iod 
"Almighty and by His holy and mighty Archangel Mi- 
-chaef, who slew the dragon of old, that from the day 
"wherein my husband went forth from the body until this 
"clay no man hath passed through the door of my bed- 
"chamber, neither have I permitted any man to approach 
"me, nor even to look upon my face." 

And the Devil, who was in the form of a nun, said 
to the honourable lady Euphemia, "First of all thou didst 
"say, No man hath come nigh me since my husband died/ 
"and behold, p. lo6| now thou dost commit sin and ful- 
"tillest iniquity, for behold, thou hast sworn a false oath. 
"Didst thou not but a little time back say, First I will 
"<>-Q into my bed-chamber, and take counsel with the 
"guardian into whose hands my husband committed me, 
"before he went out of the body? Is not a guardian a 
"man? I lave not men ever been made the guardians of 
-women? Is there not then a man in thy bed-chamber? 
"And now, inasmuch as 1 find this man, concerning whom 
"thou hast spoken falsehood, and hast sworn a lying oath, 
"in thy bed-chamber. 1 would never acknowledge thee 
"to be my kinswoman even if thou wert to give me all 
-thy wealth." And the mouth of the prudent woman 
Euphemia smiled a spiritual smile, and she said to the 
Devil who was in the form of a nun, "O my sister, this 
tiling to dwell with a man is impossible for me to do, 
"and I tell thee that neither for the wealth and the orna- 
"ments which thou hast brought unto me to cause me to 
"do this thing, nor, in truth, if they were to give me all 
"the riches which are in the palace of the pious Emperor 
"llonorius, and all the ornaments which he hath, and the 
wealth of the whole world, could 1 break the compact

"which 1 made with my blessed husband Aristarchus, tlie 
"glorious general, p. 107 1 and live together \vith a strange 
"man until I depart unto him. And I am pure from all 
"uncleanness. I did say that my guardian was in my bed 
chamber, and in saying this I did not lie. The guardian, 
"into whose hands my master and husband committed me, 
"is mightier than any other guardian and than all the kings 
"of the world. He hath no need of any one to inform 
"him concerning s j n , or w ] iat j s ( ^ O() ^ ()r that wh j c]i w ^ 

"decide concerning him, but that which we think upon, 
"and that upon which we meditate in our hearts and minds, 
"he knoweth straightway. If it be a little thought of the 
"Devil which entereth into the heart of anyone, from the 
"moment when he prayeth in the mere name of that 
"guardian his heart gaineth confidence, and if a legion of 
"the Devil s army besiegeth him, or appeareth to encamp 
"round about him, if that guardian cometh he maketh it 
"to disappear like smoke. If thou wishest, O my sister, 
"I will commit thee into the hands of that guardian that 
"he may be thy helper until the day wherein thou must 
"depart from the bod)-, and at thy death he will give 
thee over into the hands of the Good God as a precious 
"gift, and thou shalt inherit everlastino- life."

And the Devil, who was in the form of a nun, an 
swered and said unto her, "Shew me this man, then, for 
"accorcling to what thou sayest he must be very rich." 
Euphemia answered and said to him, |p. io8| "First of all 
"rise up, and let us turn our faces to the east, and let 
"us pray and offer up supplication before God. And do 
"thou make confession concerning that which thou didst 
"think in thy heart about that guardian, and say these 
"words: O God, forgive me for what I have imagined 



86* SATXT MICHAEL TIIK ARCHANGEL. 

"concerning that guardian and this woman whose hus- 
"bancl committed her into his liands, and I will never 
"a<>-ain turn to such a thought or allow it to come into 
"my heart concerning the holy one of God. If thou wilt 
"make this confession 1 will shew thee my guardian, face 
"to face, and afterwards thou shalt ask him to help and 
"protect thee." The Devil saith unto her, "A command- 
"ment was given unto me before I assumed this holy dress 
"never to spread out my hands in prayer until I returned 
"to mv cell, and never to eat with any person who liveth 
"in the world unless he weareth our garb." And hu- 
phemia answered and said to the Devil, "Thou didst say 
"unto me, He that keepeth all the law and offendeth in 
" one particular is guilty of the whole of it , and no\v, out of 
"thine own mouth, 1 can shew that thou hast transgressed 
"the commandments of God, that is to say, those which 
"He -ave t() ^ s Apostles from olden time." And the 
Devil said to her, p. 109 "What commandments have I 
"transgressed? Shew me. If thou dost not shew me at 
"once I will raise up against thee a might}- war unto 
"death." And the honourable lady Kuphemia answered 
and said unto the Devil, "In olden time our Good Saviour 
"commanded His disciples and sent them forth to preach 
"the Gospel, saying, Whatsoever house ye enter into, 
"salute it and say, Peace be upon this house, and your 
"peace shall be in it; and if not, let it return unto you . 1 
"And did He not command them to pray in whatsoever 
"place they entered into, (and also to eat with everyone 
"except those who deny that Christ hath come in the 
"flesh), saying, Whatsoever they set before you that eat 

1 St. Matthew x. 13. 



THE ENCOMIUM OF KUSTATI IIUS. 87* 

"without enquiry, and eat with thanksgiving." And again 
"the Apostle hath commanded us in his Epistle, saying, 
" Pray without ceasing, and in even thing give thanks, " 
"and no man of God ceaseth from praying by da)- and 
"by night. If then, thou art a woman and there is no 
"root of craftiness hidden in thy heart, arise, and let us 
"pray together, and after the prayer I will bring that 
"Guardian, and thou shalt see him, and shalt salute him 
"mouth to mouth, if by any means thou art worthy to 
"look upon his face." 

P. no] Now when the Devil knew that the honour 
able lady Euphemia had vanquished him on ever}- side, 
he sought to take ilight, and he began to change his 
appearance, and he took upon himself exceedingly varied 
forms. And when the honourable and noble lady Euphemia 
saw that he changed his appearance, she feared greatly, 
and cried out, saying. "O Michael, the Archangel, who 
"didst destroy all the might of the Adversary, help me 
"in this hour of necessity, for thou knowest, O my master, 
"that thou art he, into whose hands my blessed husband 
"committed me before he went forth from the bod)-, that 
"thou mightest watch over me, and be a strong tower 
"for me against the devices of the Enemy;" and when 
she had said these words she made the sign of the 
Cross over herself in the name of the Father, and the 
Son, and the Holy Spirit, and straightway the Devil 
and all his works disappeared from before her like a 
spider s web. 

And it came to pass some time after these things that 
the Devil appeared unto her in the form of an Ethiopian 

1 St. Luke x 8; I Corinthians x. 27. - i Thess. v. 17, iS. 



88 :

of huge stature, and lie was like a he-goat, and his eyes 
were very full of blood, and the hair of his head stood 
up straight like the bristles of a mountain boar, and he 
had a bright two-edged sword drawn in his hands, and 
as he stood before her a strong foetid smell came to her 



from him. p. m And when the honourable lady Euphe- 
mia saw that he had changed his appearance, straightway 
she went into her bed-chamber, and took the tablet upon 
which the picture of the holy Archangel Michael was 
painted, and she embraced it, and cried out, saying, () 
"holy Archangel Michael, help me, and deliver me out 
"of the hand of the crafty one." Now the Devil was 
standing outside the door of the bed-chamber, for he was 
not able to enter therein by reason of the glory of the 
holy Archangel .Michael which filled the chamber, and he 
laid his finger upon his nose, and he drew harsh noises 
from his throat, and cried out, saying, "1>\ Hercules, what 
"would I do unto thee, () Kuphemia, if I could come to 
"thee! 1 wished to seduce thee. and to drasi thee down

"to perdition with me, but I find that tliou hast conquered 
"me through this wooden tablet to which tliou clingest. 
"In days of old I stirred up the Jewish nation against the 
"Messiah, Whom they call Christ, for 1 thought that I 
"should destroy His power, but He hath humbled me and 
"my power by the wood of the Cross. It was I who in 
the beginning seduced Adam and Eve, and made them 
"transgress the commandment of God, and I made them 
"aliens unto Paradise and the habitation of li<>-ht. And 

o 

"again, it was I who led astray the angels until they 
"were cast out from their glory, and it was 1 who made 
"the giants to sin until God destroyed them by the 
"waters of the Deluge, p. 112 It was I who shewed the

"inhal)it;mts of Socloma. and ( iomorrah, and Thedoim, 1 and 
"Xoboim, how to commit wickedness so great that at length 
"God rained upon them tire and sulphur, and destroyed 
"them. It was I who shewed Jezebel how to sin, and I 
"slew Ahal) also with her in her sin. It was 1 who stirred 
"up the children of Israel against Aaron, and they wearied 
"him until he made a calf for them to worship, and Cod 
"was angry with them, and destroyed them, and, in short, 
"it is I who have made all sin to come into being. Was 
"it not thou, O Michael, who didst cast me and my angels 
"forth from heaven down into a pit filled with fire? And 
"behold, O Michael, 1 have left thee heaven and earth, 
"and we fly by ourselves in the air, hither and thither, 
"and we overcome those whom we are able to destroy, 
"one by fornication, another by adultery, another by swear 
ing falsely, another by backbiting, another by craftiness, 
"another by fraud, another by envy, another by scorn, 
"and another by theft; and if we know that we are not 
"able to overcome a man by such wiles, we bring upon 
"him a sleep so deep that he is unable to watch and to 
"make an opportunity wherein he may pray for his sins. 
"Behold, moreover, we have left thee heaven and earth 
"so that we might not see thy face, for thy form terriheth 
"us greatly, |p. 113 and thy apparel in the painting which 
"is painted upon this wooden tablet in divers colours by

"Michael afflict me on all sides, and I am in sore straits! 
"What shall I do unto thee, O thou honourable lady Eu-

"not overcome thee so long as thou trustest in this little 
"wooden tablet which is in thy hands, and if it be so, 
"know that I will come to thee another time on a day 
"which thou slialt not know, that is to say, on the twelfth 
"clay of the month Paoni, 1 for on that day Michael will 
"be in conclave with the angels, and will be bowing down 
"and praying with all the; angel host outside the veil ol 
"the bather for the waters of the River (? . e., the Nile) 
"ofKgypt, and for clew, and for rain. And 1 know that 
"it will happen that he will continue in prayer ceaselessly 
"for three days and three nights, and in prostrations and 
"bowings down, without standing up, until God shall hear 
"him and grant him his requests. And moreover, 1 will 
"come on that day, yea, I will come to thee prepared 
"with my mighty power, and I will lay hold of this tablet 
"of wood which is in thy hands, and 1 will smash it in 
"pieces upon thy head, p. 114 and we shall see if thou 
"canst bring the Archangel Michael here to help thee on 
"that clay." And when the prudent woman heard these 
things she took the picture of the Archangel Michael and 
ran out of her bed-chamber after the Devil and straight 
way he disappeared irom before her.

And it came to pass that the noble and honourable 
lady Kuphemia continued to make much prayer and sup 
plication clay and night, from the day upon which the 
Devil departed from her until the day concerning which 
he said, "I will come, and I will contend with thee," that 
is to say, until the twelfth day of Paoni; and she besought 
God and the hoi) Archangel Michael to be unto her a 
helper and defender. Now on the twelfth da)- of Paoni 
-the day of the Archangel Michael Kuphemia made 
read)- the things which were necessary for the festival of 
Michael, both the offerings and the first-fruits for the 
people in the shrine [of the Archangel], and the prepara 
tions for the brethren in her house after the Blessing, 
and brief!)-, she made it her care to provide abundantly 
for the feast, according to her wont, for she was very rich. 
Now the Devil, who at all times hateth that which 
is good, could not bear to see the good works which 
this woman was doing, and the tilings which she was 
making ready to give away on the festival of the holy 
Archangel Michael. And when the light had gone forth 
on the morning of the twelfth day of Paoni. whilst Ku 
phemia was still standing in prayer at the first hour, |p.H5 
and was asking God in the name of the Archangel Mi 
chael to stand by her until she had fulfilled the minis 
tration which she had undertaken, and to deliver her from 
all the wiles of the Devil, behold the Devil came and 
stood before her in the form of an archangel; and he 
had mighty wings, and he was girded round the loins 
with a girdle of gold inlaid w-ith precious stones, and he 
had upon his head a crown set with pearls of great price, 
and in his right hand was a golden sceptre, but the figure 
of the Holy Cross was not upon it. And he came and 



9-* SAIXT MICHAEL THK . \RPir. \\r,EL. 

stood before her in this great glory and magnificence, 
and when Kuphemia saw him she feared greatly, and fell 
ur)on the ground. And he took her by the hand, and 
lilted her up, and said unto her, "Fear not, O noble 
"woman, before God and His hoi)- angel. Hail, thou 
"woman, whose blessed husband hath found favour before 
"God, and whose own blessing hath become like a light- 
"giving lamp before God! Hail, thou woman, whose 
"sacrifices and oblations have become as it were a 1ml- 
"\vork of adamant for the whole world; the accursed 
"Devil shall never lead thee astray. Put thy trust in me, 
"O blessed woman, for 1 have come from God Almighty, 
"and I have seen that the prayers which thou hast made 
"this day have come up before God. ! p. 116] and they 
"are a thousand times brighter than the sun, and they 
"send forth light which terrilieth all the angel hosts. God 
"hath sent me unto thee, and I le hath told me the things 
"which 1 shall tell thee; hearken, then, unto the things 
"which shall come forth from my mouth that thou mayest 
"Imd great honour before God. Thou knowest that God 
"hath said, To hearken is better than to make sacrifice, 
"and if thou hearkenest not unto the things which 1 am 
"about to tell thee, it is not unto me that thou wilt be 
"disobedient, but unto God, and it is written, \Vhosoever 
"hearkeneth not shall be destroyed ."- And the prudent 
woman Kuphernia answered and said, "Shew me what 
"are the things which God hath commanded thee to say 
"unto me, and 1 will do and keep them." And the Devil 
answered saying, "God hath commanded me to come from 
"Him unto thee and to say unto thee, Thou art wasting

"thy husband s possessions. Thou saycst, I will give alms 
"for the salvation of his soul , but bdiold, he hath already 
"inherited the good tilings of the kingdom of heaven. 
"It is not for thee to increase the offerings and all the 
"oblations which thou makest, and the many prayers which 
"thou oiTerest up. (live a little, and keep a little in thy 
"house lest, after a time, thou come to the end of thv 
"wealth; and besides this, if the Devil seeth thee making 
"alms in this wise he will become envious of thee, p. 117 
"and he will scatter thy possessions as he scattered those 
"of Job; for he did thus to the poor, and therefore the 
"Devil destroyed everything which he had, and lie even 
"put loathsome worms in his body, and sorrow- for his 
"sons and his daughters, for he made the house in which 
"they were to fall upon them, and thev died together.

"And the Devil also was envious of the holy man Tobit 
"because of the deeds of mercy which he was wont to 
"do, for he used to bury the bodies of the dead 1 which 
"he found unburied, and the Devil envied him and brought 
"him to poverty now he was very rich and at length 
"he made birds to void dung i n hj s eves anc l tnc y 
"became blind: now it was not mere birds that did this, 
"but it was the Devil himself and his demons who took 
"upon themselves the forms of birds, and made him blind 
"because they were envious of him. And, moreover, my 
"daughter, if thou wilt hearken unto me accordino- to the 

o 

"commands of God, cease from such works as those 
"which thou doest. And, moreover, God hath told me 
"to say unto thee, Behold, thou hast no son by thy 
"blessed husband Aristarchus the general, arise now, and

" take a noble husband, and bear him a son, so that when 
"thou shalt have gone forth from the body he ma)- inherit 
"the possessions which thou hast, and may perform thy 
" commemoration when thou hast gone forth from the 
"body; for what wilt thou do? p. 118] if thou remainest 
"childless there is no hope for thee for ever. And, 
"moreover, God hath commanded me to say unto thee, 
"If thou wilt hearken unto Me, and wilt take a husband, 
"marry Hilarichus who is about to go to war with the 
" Kmperor 1 lonorius, for behold he wisheth to make ready 
"his army, and to snatch his empire out of his hands, 
"and to make himself master of all the wealth of the 
"Greeks ." 

Then the prudent woman Kuphemia perceived the 
wiles of the Devil, and she knew that it was he who 
was speaking with her, by reason of words which were 
full of passion, and she said to him, "Shew me where it 
"is written in the Scriptures, Make neither charities nor

"thanks . 1 Ami besides, thou sayest unto UK-, fp. ng] 
"Man-)- a second husband , but the man, whose name 
"thou hast first mentioned to me, and with whom I am 
"to dwell, is a heretic and an atheist, whom God shall 
"destroy without delay, and He will put a bridle in his 
"mouth, and bind him in the depths of the sea, and He 
"will humble him and all his hosts before the pious Ho- 
"norius." 

And again as concerning marriage with a second 
"husband, Solomon hath informed us in PJivsioloo-us that 
"when the first mate of the turtle-dove dieth, it cloth not 
"dwell with a second mate, but it departeth into the 
wilderness, where it hidetli itself until the day of its 
"death. And he also sheweth us that the raven family 
"doth not dwell with any mate save one, and that as we 
"rend our garments for our brother when he dieth, even 
"so likewise when a raven dieth his mate draweth out 
"her own tongue, and splitteth it with her claws, so that 
"when she uttereth her cry every one may know that 
"her mate is not there, and if another raven desireth to 
"take her by violence she crieth out straightway, and 
"when all the other ravens hear her cry they know by 
"her cleft tongue that some other raven wisheth to take 
"her by violence, and the)- gather together to help her. 
"and to rebuke the raven that wisheth to take her by 
"violence. Now therefore when children see ravens ga

"and therefore it is meet that thou shouldst come and 
"kneel in adoration unto me; and I have left my angels 
"that 1 might come unto thee." And the honourable lady 
Kuphemia answered and said unto him, "I have heard in

"Good Saviour to tempt I lim, he said unto Him, Fall

"down and worship me, and 1 will give Thee all the 
"kingdoms of the world, and the glory thereof , 1 and that 
"Christ knew at once that he was the Evil One and 
"rebuked him; perhaps thou art he who wisheth to lead 
"me astray?" And the Devil answered, "I am not he 
and far be it from me ever to become so and how 
"could such as he be found [arrayed] in such glory as 1 
"bear? For from the time when he disobeyed God s 
"command, He was angry with him, and He commanded 
"me, Michael, and I stripped him of all his glory." And 
the noble woman answered, saying, "If thou art Michael, 
"where is the figure of the Cross which should be upon 
"thy sceptre, according to what I see painted in this 
"picture wherein the figure of Michael is depicted?" And 
the Devil answered, saying, "Painters wish to decorate their 
"pictures in order that their art may be the more glorified, 
" p. 122 but the figure of the Cross is not with us nor 
"with all the other angels." And Euphemia answered, 
saying, "How can I believe thy words? For no man will 
"fulfil^ the behest for which any soldier hath come from 
"the Emperor, neither will he by any means receive him, 
"unless he bear the token of the Emperor; and, moreover, 
"thus is it with the letters which the Emperor sendeth 
"forth from his kingdom, no man belie veth that they are 
"genuine unless they be sealed with the Emperor s seal; 
"and thus also is it with the angels who come upon the 
"earth, for if the figure of the Cross of the King of glory 
"be not with them, men will not believe that they are 
"angels, ^but they will flee from them [believing] them to 
"be devils; and especially in the case of the & Archano- e l

SAINT MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL. 

"of all the ano-els, for how could he come upon the earth 

> 

"without bearing- the armour of the seal of salvation of 
"his Emperor Who is to come, that is to say, the Holy 
"Cross of Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God? Now 
"if thou wishest me to believe that thou art Michael the 
"deliverer, let me bring to thee his picture for tliee to 
"salute, and then I will worship thee without any hesi 
tation whatever." 

Now when the Devil saw that she was pressing him 

on all sides, [p. 123] and he could not find any excuse 

to utter before her, and that she rose up from the place 

wherein she was sitting, wishing to bring to him the 

picture of the holy Archangel Michael, he changed his 

form and took that of a raging lion, the roars of which 

filled the whole city, and he laid hold of her neck quickly, 

and strangled her until she was well nigh dead, and he 

spake these words unto her, saying, "This is the day 

"wherein thou hast fallen into my hands. I have taken 

"pains to catch thee for a long time past, but I could 

"not do so until to-day; let now him in whom thou put- 

"test thy confidence come and deliver thee out of my 

"hand." And that prudent woman was in exceedingly 

oreat tribulation, for she was nigh unto death, and she 

cried out, saying, "() Michael the Archangel, help me in 

"this hour of need." And it came to pass that while the 

Devil was seeking to inflict more suffering upon her, 

behold the holy Archangel Michael appeared unto her 

straightway, bearing upon himself royal rank and dignity, 

and he held in his right hand a golden sceptre which 

bore upon it the figure of the holy Cross; and the whole 

place shone a thousand times more brightly than the sun. 

And when the Devil saw him he cried out in terror, 



THE ENCOMIUM OK KUSTATIIIUS. 99* 

saying-, O thou Archangel Michael, my master, I have 
"sinned against heaven and in thy sight, |p. 124] for I 
"have dared to come into the place wherein is thy pic- 
"ture; I entreat thee not to destroy me before my time, 
"for the Creator hath granted me a few days. And thou, 
"O Archangel, art he who made me an alien unto the 
"mansions of heaven, and now I will depart and flee from 
"before thee until the day of my great disgrace, and I 
"promise and swear unto thee before God that I will not 
"return from this time forth to tempt men or women in 
"the place wherein thou art." Now while the Devil was 
saying these things he was gripped fast in the hand of 
the holy Archangel Michael, like a bird in the hand of 
a little child, and when the Archangel had made him 
suffer greatly he set him free in great disgrace. 

And the Archangel Michael spake unto the honour 
able lady Euphemia, saying, "Be strong, and of good 
"courage, and be not afraid of the Devil, for he shall 
not have power to overcome thee from this time forth. 
"I am Michael the Archangel whom thou servest, into 
"whose hands thy blessed husband Aristarchus the general 
"committed thee. I am Michael, and it is before the pic- 
"ture in thy bed-chamber upon which my form is painted 
"that thou offerest up prayer every day, and I am Mi- 
"chael who take thy prayers before God. It was I who 
"stood by at the time when thou saidst unto thy hus- 
"bancl Let be painted for me a picture of the Archangel 
11 Michael that I may place it in my house as a protector, 
" [p. 125] and thou shalt commit me into his hands that 
" he may be my guardian, and may be my helper before 
"God until He visit me, and I depart to Him after the 
" manner of all men . I am Michael who hearken unto 



TOO* SAINT MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL. 

"everyone who prayeth unto God in my name. Be not 
"afraid, for behold after them hast performed the service 
"which thou art wont to do in my name, I and a mul- 
"titudc of angels will come for thee, and I will take thee 
"up into the rest of God which thy husband hath inherited. 
"Peace be with thee." And when the Archangel Michael 

o 

had said these things he went up into heaven with <>Teat 

& 

glory, and she stood looking after him. 

And it came to pass after these things that Euphe- 
mia went to the church of Abba Anthimus, the Bishop 
of this city, who was the first-fruits of the ministry of 
Saint John Chrysostom, the Archbishop of Constantinople, 
through whom the whole of this island hath been enlight 
ened, and she shewed him all the tilings which the Arch 
angel had spoken unto her, and he glorified God and the 
mighty Archangel Michael; and he gathered together the 
elements for the Sacrament, and he performed the service 
thereof quickly and with great honour. And after the 
Sacrament she came out from the church and went in 
to her house, and she fulfilled her ministrations unto the 
poor brethren, and did service unto them, p. 126] and 
when the)- had eaten and drunk she sent for the Father, 
the Bishop, and she begged him to hold her house worthy 
to enter into, and he went to her quickly. And when 
they brought to her the news that he had come to her 
she went out to him to the third door of her house, and 
she cast herself down at his feet, and kissed them a long 
time, and the holy Bishop raised her up, and said unto 
her, "Rise up, O woman, blessed of God and man! Verily 
"God hath accepted thy sacrifices from thee like f those | 
"of Abel the righteous man, and He hath smelled the 
<( [savour of thy) offering like that of Melchisedec, the 



THE ENCOMIUM OF F. USTATIIIUS. IQI* 

"King of Salem, the priest of God the Highest, because 
"thou hast brought them in uprightness." And she took 
him with great honour and brought him into her bed 
chamber, wherein was the picture of the Archangel Mi 
chael, and she placed an ivory throne for him to sit upon, 
and a bench of silver for the priests and deacons, and 
when the) had prayed and had sat down, she opened 
the doors [of the cupboards | of her house, and brought 
out all her possessions, from the most precious thing to 
that of least value, that which was of great price, and 
that which was of no account, and she laid them before 
her. And she said to the Bishop, "O my holy father, 
receive these fe\v possessions from my hands, and dis- 
"tribute them among the poor, for me and for my blessed 
"husband, in the name of the holy Archangel Michael, 
" p. 127] that he may pray for me and for my blessed 
"husband, Aristarchus the general, before (Joel, and that 
"He may shew mercy unto my wretched soul at His 
"terrible judgment seat;" and the Bishop commanded them 
to carry all the things which belonged unto her into the 

^ O o 

church, and Euphemia set her servants free and sent 
them away. 

And it came to pass on that same clay, which was 
the twelfth day of I aoni, while we were sitting in con 
verse with the Bishop, that we smelled a choice smell of 
incense, the like of which we never smelled before (now 
I myself was there sitting with Father Anthimtis, the 
holy Bishop, the first-fruits of the ministry of Saint John 
Chrysostom, and I was at that time a priest), and when 
we had smelled this choice smell of incense, we were 
astonished to see this wonderful sight. And afterwards 
she turned to Father Anthimus, the Bishop, and said to 



IO2 SATXT MICHAEL THE ARCHAXGE1,. 

him, "I beseech thee, O my lather, to pray for me that 
"I may meet God in a favourable hour, for behold the 
"hour clraweth nigh unto me when my soul shall be sepa- 
1 rated from my poor body until the day of the great 
"judgment, for behold the Archangel Michael hath come 
"for me, and with him are my husband Aristarchus and 
"a multitude of angels;" and when she had lain down 
upon her bed, and had spread out her hands, the Bishop 
prayed over her for a long time. [p. 128 1 And afterwards 
she lifted up her face to the Bishop and to all the people 
there, and said to them, "1 entreat thee for God s sake 
"to shew me a favour and to give me the picture of the 
"Archangel Michael, that I may kiss it yet once more 
"before I depart from the body," and straightway the 
Bishop took the picture and gave it unto her, and she 
kissed it, saying, "O my master, thou holy Archangel 
"Michael, stand by me in this terrible hour." Now when 
we had heard her say these words, we and all the people 
also heard the sound | as of a mighty multitude of waters 
falling violently upon each other, like the roaring of a 
cataract, and the eyes of all, little and great, men and 
women, saw the holy Archangel Michael shining like the 
sun, and standing by the honourable lad}- Kuphemia, and 
his feet were like line brass pouring out llames of fire, 
and he had a harp in his right hand, and in his left a 
wheel (or disk), like [that of a chariot, upon which was 
a cross, and he wore apparel a thousand times finer than 
that of the kings of [this | world, and when we had looked 
upon him in this guise we were astonished and afraid by 
reason of [our] fear of him. And we saw him standing 
and spreading out his garment of light to invite the soul 
of that blessed woman, [p. 129] the honourable lady Eu- 



THE ENCOMIUM OF EUSTATHIUS. 103* 



phcmia, to come unto his holy apparel, and thus she gave 
up the ghost with the picture of the Archangel Michael 
laid upon her eyes before she departed from the body. 
And we heard the noise of a multitude singing- hvmns, 
and saying, "God knoweth the way of the righteous, and 
"their inheritance shall abide for ever." 1 

Now the picture of the Archangel Michael which was 
upon the face of the woman when she gave up the ghost, 
flew away straightway, and we knew not whither it had 
gone; and we laid the woman in the sepulchre of Aris- 
tarchus her husband. 

And it came to pass when we had buried her that 
we came into the church to celebrate the Sacrament, and 
the Bishop came into the place wherein we are now 
gathered together in the name of the holy Archangel 
Michael; and when he had gone into the place of offering 
up the sacrifice according to his wont, he saw the pic 
ture^ of the Archangel, which had flown from the house 
of Euphemia, hanging in the air without [support by| the 
hand of man in the apse of the holy place. And the 
Bishop cried out, saying, "O men of the island of Trake, 
"come and see this great miracle of the holy Archangel 
"Michael;" and all the multitude ran into the place of 
offering up sacrifice, and we saw with our own eyes the 
image of the Archangel Michael hanging in the air without 
[support by | the hand of man or anything else, [p. 130 
but it was as firm and immovable as a pillar of adamant 
which cannot move at all from its place. O what cries 
were uttered at that time when all the multitude shouted 
glory to God and to the holy Archangel Michael! 

1 Psalm i. 6. 



104* SAINT MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL. 

And it came to pass that the news of this exceed 
ingly <jreat miracle reached the God-lovingf Emperor 

r~> *> <z> o i. 

Arcadius, and the Empress Eudoxia in Constantinople, 
and the Emperor Honorius in Rome, and they determined 
to visit this island together, and thereupon they came 
tog-ether with the Empress, and the) saw with their own 
eyes the miracle of the picture of the holy Archangel 
Michael, and they bowed themselves down to the ground 
in prayer at the couch of the blessed John Chrysostom 
on which he had died, and which wrought such oreat 

o -> 

cures in this island, for immediately any sick man lay 
upon the couch of Saint John Chrysostom, he gained his 
health straightway. 

( ) who can tell the marvellous thingswhich happened 
through that picture of the Archangel Michael (which we 
see at this moment with our own eyes appearing in his 
holy shrine), in whose holy commemoration we are ga 
thered together this day! And, moreover, on the twelfth 
clay of ever) month (which is the day of the Archangel 
Michael), p. 131 that picture putteth forth olive leaves 
at its four corners, together with fine, fresh fruit, and it 
doeth thus because the tablet upon which the picture is 
painted is made] of olive wood. 

And, of a surety, ye have in remembrance the woman 
who had in her a certain sickness which is called "ab 
scess", that is to say, "tumour" (?), and who wasted away 
and became exceedingly weak by reason of the sickness 
and pain which were in her, and having come into this 
hoi)- shrine, and partaken of the fruit of the olive which 
the picture put forth on the twelfth day of the month 
which was passed, ye saw that as she ate of the fruit of 
the picture, the sore which was in her burst straightway, 



TIIK ENCOMIUM OF KUSTATIIIUS. 

and she was cleansed, and became whole, and departed 
to her house, glorifying God and the holy Archangel 
Michael, and never became diseased again. 

And hear ye also this great miracle which took place, 
and which it is not our desire to omit. Ye also saw the 
sick man who suffered so much pain in one side of his 
head that his right eye was well nigh falling out O f n [ s 
head, and when he came into this holy shrine, and had 
taken a little of the oil in the lamp, and had made the 
sign of the Cross upon his face, in the name of the Fa 
ther, and the Son, and the Holy Ghost, and had taken 
one of the leaves which the picture put forth, p. 132 and 
had laid it upon the afflicted part of his head, he became 
whole straightway, and departed to his house in peace. 
What shall we say of thee], or what shall we omit, 
O my master and lord, after God? Verily thou art the 
governor of all men and of all animals, and thou art the 
steward of them all before God. With what honour ought 
we to honour thee, O thou chief general of the hosts* of 
heaven! I know that no honour is equal unto that which 
is thine, because thou standest at all times before the 
throne of the Almighty, entreating Him concerning the 
stablishing of all mankind, and we know that the power 
is thine to go within the veil of God Almighty, none 
preventing thee. And, at this point, let us consider to 
be sufficient that which we have spoken concerning the 
angel of God, His minister of flaming fire, the holy Arch 
angel; and we will say here also, with the prophet David, 
the words which we have placed at the beginning of this 
discourse, "The angel of the Lord encampeth round about 
"all those that fear him, and delivered! them." 1 
1 Psalm xxxiv. /. 



106* SAINT MICHAEL TIIK ARCIIAXCKI.. 

And here let us direct our discourse to him who hath 
conquered and who hath taken the crown, the charioteer 
who hath coined t ] ie victory in all visible and invisible 

> 

conquests, who hath received the gift of the Holy Spirit, 
| p. 133] who hath destroyed a second Chedorlaomer, who 
hath illumined Constantinople, and not that city only, 
but also this island, and the whole world, I mean my 
master and Father, John [Chrysostom] , Archbishop of 
Constantinople, nay, rather of the whole world. O who 
can tell |the number of thy writings, full of life and full 
of all spiritual consolation (or ornament)? O who can 
declare and count the multitude of the commentaries which 
thou hast composed, O holy Archbishop John, the golden 
tongucd! If thou wouldst declare thy honour thou wouldst 
need thine own tongue, for no tongue of flesh could de 
scribe the glory of thy holy life. Thou didst boldly 
rebuke the kings who had turned away from the truth, 
even as David prophesied concerning our Fathers the 
Apostles, saying, "Their sound hath gone out over the 
"whole earth, and their words have reached unto the 
"ends of the world." 1 And as for thee thyself, O mighty 
John, what place is there, or what monastery, throughout 
the whole inhabited world, wherein thou wilt not find 
some account of thy life, and thy sweet commentaries? 
even those which are upon the Two Natures of Christ, 
and they have gone from city to city, and from country 
to country, and thy discourses have been transmitted and 
have been made things to guard safely which shall be 
preserved for all time. 

1 Psalm xix. 4. 



THE KJS CO.MIU.M OF EUSTAT1 IK S. IO;* 

And moreover, p. 134] I will be so bold as to declare 
that the Empress banished thee by the dispensation of 
God to this island, and thou didst soften our nature 
which was as hard as stone and didst make us exceed 
ingly gentle; and we have abandoned the service of idols, 
and have become servants of God, the Creator of the 
universe. And thou didst come to this island as a strano-er, 
and thou didst come and didst make thyself like unto the 
solid wall which standeth firm in the palace of kin<>- s , 
and thou didst take the prisoners, and thou didst make 
them free, and didst send them back to their country 
in peace and glory; for the Devil had made them pri 
soners from the beginning, and had cast them into the 
blackest darkness, but the King of Kings held them to 
be precious, and sent thee unto this island to redeem us 
out of the captivity of the Devil, and thou didst give us 
unto the King of Kings as a gift more precious | than 
any royal gift (now what is more choice, or what is more 
glorious than all the souls which thou hast delivered out 
of the hand of the Devil?), and thou hast brought us 
into the palace of the Kino- of Kinofs. 

<Z> T> 

And I entreat thee, O my master and my holy father, 
that peradventure thou mayest grant unto me thy for 
giveness, for behold, I have been so bold as to attempt 
a work which is above my ability, that is to say, to speak 
words in thy honour. And I think, O my beloved, that 
in any case I must now moderate my speech, otherwise 
the length of the discourse will make thee to forget that 
to which thou hast listened at the beginning; [p. 135 for 
in everything there should be moderation. And finally, 
let us present ourselves before the holy Archangel Mi-

God to forgive us our sins, for he is mighty with our
