Baptême et communion des jeunes enfants : la Lettre de Jean d’Antioche à Théodore d’Éphèse (998/999)

Abstract : First edition and French translation of the Letter of John of Antioch to Theodore of Ephesus on the Baptism and Communion of Young Children, preserved in Paris. gr. 1304 (ca. 1280). This Letter belongs to the genre of canonical responsa. It was composed in Constantinople in 998/ 999 by John III Polites and was addressed to Theodore II of Ephesus. It concerns the question of whether young children can have the sacraments, and it reveals a conflict which arose at the end of the tenth century within the metropolis of Ephesus. Preserved in Constantinople until the beginning of the thirteenth century, the Letter re-appears in the region of Otranto in 1235/ 1236 through the joint efforts of Nicholas-Nektarios of Casole and George Bardanes.
