Publisher's Summary

St. Cyril's (313 - 386 AD) famous 23 lectures were delivered to the catechumens in Jerusalem who were being prepared for baptism. They are best considered in two parts. The first 18 are known as the catechetical lectures or Homilies, while the rest are often called the mystagogic catecheses, since they deal with the mysteries: the sacraments of baptism, confirmation, and the Eucharist.

The catechetical lectures are generally assumed to have been delivered either by St. Cyril in his early years as a bishop (around 350 or in 348) or while he was still a priest. The catechetical lectures were given in a church built by Constantine the Great, and they contain instructions on the main topics of the Christian faith and practice. They are given in a popular rather than a scientific manner, full of pastoral warmth and love for the catechumens.

The lectures are each based on a text of Scripture, and there are many Scriptural quotations throughout. St. Cyril is venerated as a saint throughout the Catholic and Orthodox world, and in 1883, he was declared a Doctor of the Church by Pope Leo XIII.
