The Works of Saint Cyril of Jerusalem, vol. 2
by Cyril of Jerusalem
Cyril’s life of some seventy years, placed in the very center of the fourth century, epitomizes much that was characteristic of the period and the locale. Bishop of Jerusalem for nearly forty years, he experienced three expulsions from his see, these due as much to politico-ecclesiastical rivalry as to his participation in the contemporary theological controversies, in which Cyril played an important and still disputed role. The present volume carries about half of the bishop’s most valuable production, a series of catechetical lectures for Lent and Easter week. This volume includes the remaining six lectures for catechists and the five Mystogogical Lectures.

On the Christian Sacraments
by Cyril of Jerusalem
These six lectures on the Christian sacraments were delivered in Jerusalem in the middle of the fourth century. They belong to a period of rapid transition for the Church. Less than 40 years before, Christianity had been an illegal religion, the object of intense persecution. Now it was the favored religion of the state. Potential converts thronged to the shining new basilicas, built through the beneficence of Constantine and his successors. Catechetical instruction was needed. It was provided by gifted preachers and teachers like St. Cyril of Jerusalem.

The Catechetical Lectures of St. Cyril
by Cyril of Jerusalem
St. Cyril’s life of some seventy years, placed in the very center of the fourth century, epitomizes much that was characteristic of both Jerusalem and the century. Bishop of Jerusalem for nearly forty years, he experienced three expulsions from his see, these due as much to politico-ecclesiastical rivalry as to his participation in the contemporary theological controversies, in which Cyril played an important and still disputed role. This volume contains Cyril’s 23 Catechetical Lectures. They are written in an informal tone in contrast to the rigid and scientific tone similar lectures often took. They resonate with pastoral love and warmth and are filled with scripture. Cyril’s lectures are an excellent model of early Christian instruction and liturgy.
