On Pascha: Melito of Sardis (+Circa 190 AD)

Popular Patristics Series Volume 20

The Quartodecimans were early Christians who maintained the tradition derived from Judaism, and observed Pascha on the same occasion that the Jews observed Passover. In this work, Alistair Stewart-Sykes, the leading authority on Melito and the Quartodecimans, presents a unique collection of material in a format ideal for classroom use as well as for the general reader.

At the head of this collection stands a new translation of On Pascha by Melito of Sardis, a liturgical work deriving from Quartodeciman circles in Asia. Alongside this is an extensive introduction and annotation pointing out not only that parallels to Jewish practice, but also offering an analysis of the work in terms of classical rhetoric. In addition, the translator has included a selection of Melito's fragments, testimonies to Melito and other material vital for understanding the Quartodeciman liturgies from Rome, Syria, and Asia. 

Alistair Stewart-Sykes is an Anglican priest in the United Kingdom.
