ANF VI: Methodius on Simeon and Anna

Ante-Nicene Fathers Volume VI

Methodius: Oration Concerning Simeon and Anna on the Day that they Met in the Temple

This speech is excellent, if a bit overblown to modern ears at times. Unfortunately, we also begin to see something of what would become the Medieval worship of Mary. Fortunately, this does appear to be a later interposition rather than necessarily original to the time when Methodius actually lived.
