Euphemia in Edessa and Euphemia in Chalcedon: two hagiographic legends against their polemical background

Summary

 

Two hagiographical legends are analyzed: a Syrian (while composed in Constantinople) miracle story on the martyrs Gury, Samonas and Habib and the Byzantine Constantinopolitan Martyrium of St Euphemia. The study resulted in conclusion that the two legends were polemically counterpoised in the struggle over the Council of Chalcedon. Moreover, the earliest form of the Miracle of St Euphemia about the horos of Chalcedon has been reconstructed and the dating of this legend has been provided (about 510s). The analysis of the earliest recension of the Martyrium of Euphemia leads to the conclusion that this cult absorbed the veneration of Empress Pulcheria immediately after her death. The legend of the Miracle of St Euphemia about the horos has been compared with the legend of the martyrs Gury, Samonas and Habib in Edessa performed for another Euphemia. This comparison of the two legends shows that the latter has been composed as an anti-Chalcedonian answer to the former.

что мне знающие люди сказали сегодня

(в дурке):

что патриарх Алексий II не умер, хотя болеет. но за ним ухаживает старец о.Василий Ермаков (который тоже не умер), так что все будет и даже есть в порядке.

никаких новых патриархов не изберут!
