“Christ did not, like Moses, become resplendent from without, but as God he blazed with glory. For Moses was anointed with splendour by the appearance of his face, while Jesus in his whole body blazed, like the sun with its rays with the glory of his divinity”

St Ephraim the Cyrian, Festal Homily, The Transfiguration
