Chapter Summary

The spirituality of Macarius has a very ancient and non-Greek condition. It learns the tenderness of God in maternal images. Macarius repeatedly emphasize the permanent sinfulness of men, even after received grace. A realistic view of the apostles was possible at the time when the apostles were regarded as heroes. The author of the gospel of Liber Graduum has worked on the Messalianism until the time of Macarius. The Syrians knew a different baptismal liturgy: the anointing took place before water baptism and was so important, because in his mind transfer took place. It has been said rightly, the Syrian baptismal go to Palestine models back. Thus the Jewish Christianity is also in the case Macarius committed when he emphasizes anointing of Christians at baptism. The original text of the chapter is in German.
