    "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."
