Feast of the Transfiguration
On the sixth of August we celebrate the solemn feast of the Holy Transfiguration in commemoration of the glorious change in appearance of our Lord Jesus Christ on a “high mountain” (Mt. 17:1), which, since the fourth century, Christian tradition identifies with Mt. Tabor. The Fathers refer to Christ’s transfiguration as to His “second epiphany” or the second manifestation of His divinity. For this reason, the Fathers during the Christo- logical disputes adduced the transfiguration of Christ as a certain proof of His divinity. The establishment of the feast then followed.
