ST. EPHREM'S VISION OF THE MEDICINE OF LIFE

Joby John

Abstract: This academic paper deals with the Ephremian vision of the imagery of the medicine of life. The imagery of the ‘Medicine of Life’ is one of the critical imageries in the works of St. Ephrem. This imagery is the key by which St. Ephrem attempted to unlock the mystery of salvation through Eucharistic theology. Therefore, a detailed search in the work of St. Ephrem is required to find out how and in what sense the imagery the ‘Medicine of Life’ is used. The main focus of this academic paper is to study how St. Ephrem has used the imagery to denote the different dimensions of the Eucharist. Therefore, this academic paper also gives special attention to reading each significant event in the Holy Scripture to find out the Eucharistic theology of St. Ephrem.
