Sévère d'Antioche, prédicateur et polémiste : qualification et disqualification des adversaires dogmatiques dans les Homélies cathédrales

Abstract : Delivered between 512 and 518, Severus of Antioch's Homiliae cathedrales seem to represent quite an original step in the carreer of this great antichalcedonian theologian, for he may look like giving up logical demonstration, lumping together different heresies and prefering the use of polemical assimilations. His first aim in doing so is to associate his whole audience and the whole city under his pastoral care to his own christological party, and to the condemnations of his Chalcedonian or Euthychian opponents. In this way, a doctrinal communion emerges of faithfuls united around their pastor, through which salvation economy operates. It must be added that a greater number of people may be touched that way, for both condemned doctrines, either Chalcedonism or Eutychianism, are assimilated to previous and well known errors (Nestorianism, on one side, Apollinarism or Manichaeism, on the other), and even to social or ethnic categories already stigmatised, such as Jews and Persians.
