Cette publication complete celle des fragments de Severe d'Antioche relatifs a l'Exode (TEG 9). Sa nouveaute reside dans les nombreux extraits qu'elle revele de la Correspondance de Severe. Ils sont presque aussi nombreux que les emprunts aux Homelies cathedrales et proviennent surtout de la chaine des Regnes. Severe y repond aux questions, parfois tres concretes, de ses correspondants, echange revelateur des preoccupations religieuses de l'epoque. Autre nouveaute, plus modeste: la decouverte d'une hymne, qui en outre a permis l'identification de deux pieces analogues, attestees dans la chaine de l'evangile de Matthieu. Dans le cas de Severe, la tradition syriaque revet une particuliere importance. Elle ne peut etre traitee superficiellement mais impose une analyse fine. Lucas Van Rompay a bien voulu se charger entierement de cet aspect du travail. Son glossaire des correspondances entre le grec et le syriaque constitue pour les orientalistes un instrument dont ils reconnaitront le prix.
