Isaiah Through the Ages
St Vladimir's Seminary Press, 1995 - Religion - 1072 pages
A compilation of previously unavailable translated commentaries by the Church Fathers on the book of Isaiah. Fourth and fifth-century exegetes are featured especially, but there are many excerpts from Sts. Justin Maryr, Irenaeus, Athanasius of Alexandria, Jerome, Ambrose and others. Modern commentary (from 1775 to the present) has been added to enhance our understanding by providing insight into the historical context, poetry and structure. In some chapters, a short Judaic section has been included to point to Messianic passages and assist with some obscure metaphors and references.
