St. Sophronius: Biography and Selected Writings


Bishop and Early Church Father


(scroll down for a list of online writings) Life: St. Sophronius was a simple monk who pursued a life of prayer and  sacrifice first in the desert of Egypt, then near the Jordan River, then finally in the Holy City of Jerusalem.  He was ultimately chosen to be bishop and Patriarch of Jerusalem in the early 7th century.  He valiantly defended the true and full humanity of Christ in the face of the heresy of Monothelitism, which denied that Jesus had a human as well as a divine will.  The year before his death in 638, he witnessed the capture of Jerusalem by the Muslims under the Caliph Omar.  Several of his sermons and poems have survided till this day.  St. Sophronius is known as one of the Fathers of the Church.  To read an overview on the Early Church Fathers, Click Here.
