The most famous representative of the school of Antioch, Theodore of Mopsuestia penned a number of commentaries on biblical books in both Testaments. This volume offers not only an introduction to Theodore's life and work but also the first modern-language translation of his commentaries on Paul's minor epistles (Galatians–Philemon). The English translation is accompanied by a facing Latin/Greek text based on H. B. Swete's 1880–1882 critical edition of these early fifth-century commentaries. As a prime example of “Antiochene” exegesis and theology, they are of considerable interest, providing valuable evidence for Theodore's exegetical principles and practice, his Christology and doctrines of grace and free will, and his understanding of crucial developments in Christian ministry and church polity from the time of Paul to his own day.
