Abstract

Ephraim the Syrian in Hymns on Paradise portraits many pleasures of the Garden. His vision of Paradise is closely related to what he perceived the be the true Christian Self. For Ephraim, the human body is the Self itself, able to be transformed and directed, on whom the personal history is written in order to be read after the final Ressurection of the dead. We can assume that his detailed description of the sensuality of Paradise represents an apology directed toward different anthropologies that denied the importance of the human body, the importance of its senses in gnoseological process, and the possibility of its resurrection.
