La correspondance du patriarche Sévère d'Antioche (512-518) : Un témoignage sur les institutions et la discipline ecclésiastiques en Orient protobyzantin.

Abstract : The circumstances of the Syriac tradition of the correspondance of Severus indicate what considerable interest it represents for the history of the Eastern Chruch, since these letters were first collected, in a selective and fragmentary way, as normative documents. They therefore inform us about ecclesiastical institutions, procedures, and discipline in the juridiction of Antioch. As the keystone of the system, a regular diocesan synod thus emerges as the appropriate structure for governing a vast, contrasting ecclesiastical structure, bringing togather a dozen rival and culturally heterogenous provinces, in a period of acute doctrinal and political tensions. For a time, Severus was able to take up and develop a collegial concept of episcopate, in order to better establish his theological authority.
