The Crown Jules

Roger Pearse has posted a new translation of a chunk of Cyril of Alexandria’s whomping of Julian the Apostate.

If you’re interested in Julian, I recommend fellow blogger Adrian Murdoch‘s popular biography, The Last Pagan: Julian the Apostate and the Death of the Ancient World. I have a long review of it coming out soon in Touchstone, where I review books every month. Do subscribe!

A silly aside: Last year I posted a little sketch of the life of the Apostate and titled it “Julian Fries.” Now I’m one of the top results for spelling-challenged cooks who are Googling in search of a recipe for “Julienne fries.” I kid you not.

  1. Just realised that I hadn’t thanked you for alerting me to Roger’s translation – thanks!

  2. I am delighted that you liked it! I will do more. I had wondered until tonight whether I was working in a vacuum — now I know different. I rather suspect that Cyril Against Julian is far more interesting than any of us have realised.
