From Letter XXII 4523 .—(For 350.)

Where our Lord Jesus Christ, who took upon Him to die for all, stretched forth His hands, not somewhere on the earth beneath, but in the air itself, in order that the Salvation effected by the Cross might be shewn to be for all men everywhere: destroying the devil who was working in the air: and that He might consecrate our road up to Heaven, and make it free.



The above fragments are from Cosmos Indicopleustes: the Greek in Migne xxvi. 1432, sqq.
