Texts


μεσσηγὺς γαίης τε καὶ οὐρανοῦ ἵσταται ἀνήρ,
πάντοθεν ὀρνυμένους οὐ τρομέων ἀνέμους.


ἴχνια ῥιζώσας κίονι διχθάδια:
λιμῷ δ᾽ ἀμβροσίᾳ τρέφεται καὶ ἀπήμονι δίψῃ,
υἱέα κηρύσσων μητρὸς ἀπειρογάμου.

On the Pillar of Holy Daniel on the Bosphorus

Midmost of earth and heaven stands a man, dreading not the winds that blow from all quarters . . . both feet firmly planted on the column. He is nourished by ambrosial hunger and painless thirst, ever preaching the Son of the Immaculate Mother.
