Lectures on the Christian Sacraments: The Procatechesis and the Five Mystagogical Catecheses

St Cyril of Jerusalem
Edited by F. L. Cross

Number 2 of Popular Patristics Series

“The Catechetical Lectures, to which alone Cyril owes his fame, fall into two groups. All but the last five were addressed to the group of candidates looking forward to Baptism at the coming Easter, who formed a special class known as φωτιζόμενοι (competentes); the last five were directed to the newly baptized. It was the practice for the φωτιζόμενοι to give in their names on the eve of the first Sunday of Lent, and on the next day to make public profession of their purpose before witnesses. On the day following, the exorcisms and catecheses began, which continued through the Lent Fast. These catecheses took the form of continuous addresses, not catechizing by question and answer. Any of the faithful (baptized) who wished were permitted to be present, but catechumens of the earlier stage were excluded.”
