Commentary on the Creed
Date: Before 1046
Original Language: Arabic
This work is divided into 19 parts (fuṣūṣ) corresponding to the elements into which Elias divides the Creed. Each is given in Syriac, together with what is an Arabic paraphrase (tafsīr) followed by a commentary (taʾwīl).
It is clear that Elias writes about the Trinity and Incarnation with the views of Muslims, as well as Jacobites and Melkites, in mind.
