The Life and Death of Theodore of Stoudios

The Life and Death of Theodore of Stoudios lead image

The present publication from the Dumbarton Oaks Medieval Library series translates for the first time into English three medieval Greek texts—the Life of Theodore of Stoudios by Michael the Monk, the Encyclical Letter of Naukratios, and the Translation and Burial of the Remains of Theodore of Stoudios and Joseph of Thessalonike—which, notwithstanding their different authorship, compositional date, and purposes, revolve around the life, contests, death, burial, and reburial of this ecclesiastical authority. The texts are given in the original with a facing English translation and are accompanied by an Introduction, Abbreviations, Note on the Texts, Notes to the Texts, Notes to the Translations, a Bibliography, and an Index.
