Commentary on Isaiah, Volume I: Chapters 1-14

Cyril of Alexandria
Translated with an Introduction by Robert Charles Hill

Volume I of Commentary on Isaiah

“In a recent collection of essays, The Theology of St. Cyril of Alexandria: A Critical Appreciation, there appear two seemingly unrelated comments. One, by the editors, is that ‘for many—then and now—Cyril of Alexandria is little more than an ecclesiastical thug.’ The other, by Robert L. Wilken on Cyril as interpreter of the Old Testament, is a note of regret to the effect that ’perhaps it is that they are so long that they are not read. But Cyril’s commentaries on the Old Testament sit passively (and expectantly) alongside the other volumes of the Patrologia Graeca in libraries all over the world gathering dust.’ Clearly then, it is high time that such works of Cyril should appear in English and become more accessible; and equally clearly—at least to eventual readers with stamina—high time for that unsavory reputation to be dissipated once a different insight into Cyril’s pastoral practice is thus gained. For indubitably (in the view of the translator of Cyril’s commentaries on The Twelve Prophets and now on the prophet Isaiah) it is no thug who is their author—not even a polemicist of the kind who later in the heat of controversy composed the Contra Diodorum et Theodorum, and who was involved in ecclesiastical and theological turmoil from which he may arguably not have emerged above reproach.”
