Abstract This article offers an English translation of the Anaphora of Thomas and a two-part commentary on this much neglected Sahidic eucharistic prayer of probably the fourth or fifth century. Part I of the commentary argues that the Anaphora of Thomas is Egyptian in character and therefore should be considered a member of the Egyptian eucharistic prayer family. Part II analyzes the themes and structure of the anaphora in the light of Jewish merkavah mysticism, particularly the text Ma’aseh Merkavah. Such an analysis elucidates the anaphora’s contribution to the ongoing question of eucharistic prayer origins, especially with regard to the Sanctus unit.
