Procopius of Gaza wrote a major commentary on most of the historical books of the Old Testament (CPG 7430). This volume presents the first section, devoted to Genesis, for the first time in the complete Greek text. Amidst Procopius's continuous text we find a collection of excerpts that is of extraordinary value as a source in places where the original work was lost due to Council decisions or historical events.

"Every researcher with an interest in Greek patristic and Byzantine interpretations of the Bible will welcome these two volumes by Karin Metzler [...] M.’s two volumes are the standard work for research on Procopius’ exegesis of the historical books of the Bible. [...] Her two volumes with the edition, translation and study of Procopius’ exegesis of Genesis are a scholarly accomplishment of the highest standards. It offers researchers a reliable basis for future exploration of Greek exegesis of the first book of the Bible." Reinhart Ceulemans in: Vigiliae christianae 71 (2017) 205-224 "The present work is a monument of meticulous scholarship." Pieter W. van der Horst in: BMCR 2015.06.31
