Description

The First Created Man is a collection of seven homilies which deal with Adam s fall and our redemption by Jesus Christ.
A knowledge of the beginning and end of all things is essential for us to understand the purpose of our existence here on this earth, and what lies beyond it. For a true interpretation of the first and last things, we must turn to those teachers who beheld the beginning and end in a state of divine vision. Among these great seers was St. Symeon the New Theologian (949 1022): he speaks of the mysteries of the beginning and end precisely because he has seen them.
