The Book of Steps [Liber Graduum]
Proposed dates range from mid-4th cent. The anonymous author gives very few historical or geographical details in the memre , but one reference points to a location of the author and his spiritual community in northeast Iraq near the Lesser Zab River. The collection does not have a Syriac title. This term is mentioned only in two memre , numbers 19 and
Gorgias Encyclopedic Dictionary of the Syriac Heritage: Electronic Edition
The author appears to be living in the Persian Empire , perhaps somewhere near the Lesser Zab , as it is mentioned in Memra Thirty, and addresses the author's own Christian community. The first discourse, and subsequent ones especially number 14 , divides the community into two groups. The lesser commandments are outworkings of the Golden Rule Matthew 7. On the other hand, the 'perfect' are expected to renounce family, marriage and property so as to receive baptism of fire and Spirit.
