The Mystagogics, on the other hand, are not described in their titles as improvised, and indeed their evident ‘jejune’ character suggests that what we have is a summary of the preacher’s words. Often points are touched upon, but not developed. A clear example of this is the telegraphic summary of trinitarian doctrine in connection with the descent of the Holy Spirit on Jesus in the Jordan, ‘like resting upon like’. 17 It is consequently a surprise when we read the pilgrim Egeria’s description of the rapturous reception which the Mystagogics inspired in their hearers.

For this and other reasons it seems more plausible to suggest that Cyril’s ‘completion of the spiritual sacrifice’ included some form of Institution Narrative and Anamnesis-Oblation. There is no evidence that at this date the Eucharistic Prayer was thought to be composed of epiclesis, Narrative and Anamnesis as distinct modules.
