Among the earliest known sources from the Persian Church, the 4th-century Demonstrations of Aphrahat reflect a form of Christianity much closer to its Jewish roots than contemporary Western forms.

  Among the earliest known sources from the Persian Church, the 4th-century Demonstrations of Aphrahat reflect a form of Christianity much closer to its Jewish roots than contemporary Western forms. Their mix of ascetic instruction, polemic against Judaism, and theological reflection provides an invaluable glimpse into this otherwise poorly documented period.

Everyday low prices and free delivery on eligible orders.5/5(1).   This books examines Aphrahat the Persian Sage’s views of asceticism, sacramental theology, Christology, and ecclesiology and concludes that Aphrahat, a mid-fourth century Christian author, uses themes with ancient roots, including Merkabah traditions of the temple and applies these traditions to the Christian experience of God. Aphraates is sometimes identified as the bishop of the monastery of Mar Mattai, near Mosul Mesopotamia. Possibly a martyr, he is believed to have written a many-volumed defense of the faith called the Demonstrations, which is the oldest extant document of the Church in Syria. Aphraates is often referred to as "the Persian Sage." What do YOU think?
