of this he certainly received the crown of our Lord Jesus Christ, the athlete for us, whose faith is over his church. And it was he that called him even as he called Moses the prophet in the wilderness. For he, when he had pleased the Lord by his works and his faith, desired him to take him from this troublous world unto the abode of paradise, the eternal rest, that he, even the great father Severus, might there rejoice with his saints and inherit ever* fol. 218, lasting life. *And he had gone unto the city of Saka (Xois) and was in the dwelling of Dorotheus the governor of it. And the Lord visited him with a light disorder, and when he fell asleep his understanding was zealous and clear in the orthodox faith and he uttered many words wherewith he overthrew all the words of the schismatics and their canons, and he put therein all the offences and shameful acts of the council of Chalcedon, and he revealed their hypocrisy to his people. And then he lifted up his eyes and said that he saw men whose aspect was wonderful, coming to seek him, and they were the company of the holy fathers who fell asleep before him, and whose words he continually declared, and their teaching he called to mind, and read it in the church. These are they whom our Lord Jesus Christ has accepted because of their conflict for the holy faith.

And as for the father Severus also, when he had wrestled again and revealed the saving faith, and shown it unto the people, he received him unto himself, and the grace of the Messiah crowned him. For he was a keeper of his commands, wondrously bright, until the day when he finished his conflict.

And it was on the fourteenth of the month Yakātīt that he fell asleep. And the devout Dorotheus, who loved the Lord, wrapped his holy body and brought it unto the monastery which the reverend father Severus loved, and in which he dwelt and to which he always returned. For there were there many monasteries, more than three hundred monasteries. And this monastery which is the monastery of Mahew was near to Alexandria. And his body

is now in that monastery. For the most of the monasteries that were there

have perished.

[ocr errors]

And I have told you, O brethren, a little of his story, and I have not related ^ how his coming unto the monastery came about, lest the writing be * fol. 218, too long. For his story is long, but I am weary with it' for the writing of it is long.

It is fitting now for you, ye who have heard this, that each one of you go unto the body of this holy hero, with reverence, and that we desire not substance nor raiment, but salvation of soul, and holiness of body, and love of the brethren, and likewise love for our king and God Jesus Christ.

he have mercy upon us according to the greatness of his mercy, and may he not remember our sins, but show us his clemency and his grace. Blessed be God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now and eternally, and for ever and ever. Amen.

Here ends the story, from the words of the holy Athanasius who wrote it, of the conflict of the reverend father Severus, the patriarch. May his prayer be with us all henceforth and for ever. Amen. And the writing of it is found in the writing of John the son of Sa'ed the son of Yeḥyā; remember the scribe, and him who translated it from the writing by the hand of the elder Abuel-Makarram, son of Abuel-Baddar. May the Lord have mercy through his prayer upon our king, lyyasu, and upon him who wrote this book, who believes the good faith in the God of Severus. May he write * fol. 219, * his name in the book of life in heaven with the righteous saints and martyrs for ever and ever. Amen.
