Abstract In 1975 Arthur Vööbus drew attention to the existence of a Syriac translation of a letter by Patriarch Severos of Antioch in which he related details of his flight from Antioch in 518. The Syriac text has now been published by His Eminence Mar Hazail Soumi on the basis of five manuscripts, accompanied by an Introduction and French translation. In view of the interest of the document the present article offers an English translation of the Syriac text of the Letter, with some basic annotation.
