Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a sermon by Gregory the Archdeacon and Referendarius of the great church at Constantinople. The sermon explains how unbelievable things are not subject to the laws of praise and how three patriarchs have declared that there is an image of Christ which was brought from Edessa 919 years afterwards by the zeal of a pious emperor, in the year 6452. The chapter discusses the letters written by the ruler of Edessa called Agbar to Christ. He wrote to Christ requesting to be cured of the disease he was suffering from, and received a reply full of good hope. Agbar sent his letters to Christ in Jerusalem via Ananias his messenger. Jesus also replied to Agbar via Ananias.
