Every now and then I will do a series about a theological topic or work. One of those series was on the Catechetical Lectures of St. Cyril of Jerusalem. It turned into an interesting exploration of Patristic doctrine and practice as opposed to what we have today in all parts of Christianity. Following are the topics and links to them:
- Is It Proper to Refer to Christians as Enlightened?
- Catechises and Baptismal Regeneration
- Catechises, the Preparation for Baptism and Discipleship
- Confirmation or Chrismation?
- Touch not God’s Anointed
- The Difference Between Image and Likeness in Genesis
- Every King is Proclaimed by Soldiers
- Is God’s Omnipotence Dependent Upon the Existence of His Creation?
- The Holy Spirit and Miracles, Then and Now
- The End Times Without Revelation
- Mystagogy, Sacramental Theology and the Poker Playing Dog
- Some Closing Thoughts on Cyril of Jerusalem’s Catechetical Lectures
Although not a formal part of the series, the article The Gift of Faith: Cyril of Jerusalem relates to the same work.
