The story of St. Ephrem’s life is enigmatic, but even though he is surrounded by mystery, his poetic writings are well attested. They tell us a great deal about Ephrem and his theological positions. Though St. Ephrem never attained prominence in West, his influence in the Eastern Church is substantial to this day. Originally composed in Syriac, the “rhythms” included in The Select Works of St. Ephrem the Syrian explore the birth and death of Christ, as well as apologetic themes and the nature of faith. Theologically rich and creative in expression, this collection of works help us see more clearly into Ephrem’s life while gaining a better grasp of his theology.
