Chapter Summary

For a long time critical questions focused on the destination of the vast literary output on the final fate of Mary, better known as the Transitus Mariae, and on its function and its status in the "corpus" a form of Christian ancient literature. This chapter presents a survey of the homilies relevant to the Transitus Mariae. Next, it presents an analysis about the ultimate fate of Mary. The examination of homilies here reveals the liturgical function of the Transitus Mariae. The chapter presents homilies from both Greek and Armenian traditions. It also presents a homéliaire which itself contains the text of the Sermon on the Dormition of the Virgin of Jean Thessaloniki. This text is a manuscript submitted to the National Library of Vienna. Pseudo-Jean wrote about the ultimate fate of Mary and provided a literary and liturgical analysis. The original text of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: Christian ancient literature; fate of Mary; Pseudo-Jean; Transitus Mariae
