  • Title: At the Hour of Our Death: Mary's Dormition and Christian Dying in Late Patristic and Early Byzantine Literature [The author argues that in early Byzantium Mary's death and translation served as the only clear hope for humanity after death. The key was that a human, not just the son of God, shared in the glorious life of the resurrection and was there as a patron to help humankind on its journey. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
