Working from the Jewish tradition of Hebrew letters, but at the same time distancing himself from it, the author developed a Christian interpretation of the Greek alphabet from alpha through to omega. An introduction locates the work in cultural history by presenting various versions of Jewish and Christian letter symbolism. The critical text itself is supported by a translation and notes.
