Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

This liturgy, extant in a Greek and a Syriac form, is traditionally ascribed to St James, the Lord's brother. Its use by the Syrian Orthodox Church (which became a separate body after the Council of Chalcedon in 451), as well as by the main Orthodox Churches, shows that it cannot be later than the mid-5th century.
