"Let books be your dining table, / And you shall be full of delights. / Let them be your
mattress,/
And you shall sleep restful nights" (St. Ephraim the Syrian).

The Old Testament in Byzantium

Dumbarton Oaks, a research centre of Harvard University, has for decades been in the forefront of scholarship on Byzantium, and not merely its religious aspects but much else besides. Now we have a new book that will be reviewed by Danylo Kuc in Logos: A Journal of Eastern Christian Studies next year. Fr. Danylo is both newly ordained to the priesthood and newly graduated from MASI in Ottawa with a doctorate on the uses of the Septuagint in the Eastern Churches.
