Commentary Upon the Gospel of St. Luke: Volume 1

by St. Cyril of Alexandria


Here is the first volume of an ancient commentary on the Gospel of Luke by St. Cyril of Alexandria. Cyril lived in the fifth century. This commentary was translated into English by R. Payne Smith and published in 1859. This volume also has a descriptive and informative “preface” to introduce Cyril’s work and its translation. The content is divided into sections called “sermons.” This volume contains sermons 1 through 80. Luke’s gospel which has an emphasis on the “human” nature of Christ is of particular relevance to Cyril since he was one of the defenders of the doctrine of Christ. A heresy was being taught and spread that there were two separate Jesus. One Jesus was fully human and the other was fully divine. Cyril wrote in defense of one Jesus who was fully divine and fully human.
