Summary:
"In Tradition and Innovation, Nathan Witkamp convincingly argues that Narsai of Nisibis' (d. ca. 503) baptismal rite and mystagogy, as portrayed in his Liturgical Homilies 21-22, are not nearly as dependent on Theodore of Mopsuestia (ca. 350-ca. 428) as has usually been supposed.

Abstract:

"In Tradition and Innovation, Nathan Witkamp convincingly argues that Narsai of Nisibis' (d. ca. 503) baptismal rite and mystagogy, as portrayed in his Liturgical Homilies 21-22, are not nearly as dependent on Theodore of Mopsuestia (ca. 350-ca. 428) as has usually been supposed. Narsai's baptismal rite turns out to represent a particular East Syrian liturgical tradition, independent of Theodore. In his mystagogy, Narsai uses Theodore's Baptismal Homilies 1-3 as just one source among others to create the artwork he desires. This detailed comparative study contributes to our understanding of rite and mystagogy in Theodore and Narsai within the broader early Syrian context, as well as to the reception of Theodore by Narsai and the East Syrian Church"--
