The leaders of the idolaters … in many places hold a great feast on the very night of Epiphany… First of all, in Alexandria they hold festival in what is called the Coreum, which is a great temple, namely the sacred precinct of Core.They stay awake the whole night singing hymns to the idol to the accompaniment of flutes. They keep it up the entire night, and after cockcrow torchbearers descend into an underground shrine and bring up a wooden statue seated naked on a litter…
They carry the statue in a circle seven times around the very center of the temple to the accompaniment of flutes,kettledrums, and hymns and thus reveling carry it back down to the place underground. Asked what the rite means, they say: Today at this hour Core (meaning the virgin) engendered Aeon.
This is also done in the city of Petra in the temple of the idol there. They sing hymns to the virgin in Arabic, calling her in Arabic“Chaamu”, which means Core or “virgin”,and the one born from her “Du sares”…The rite is also performed in the city of Elusa on that night as in Petra and Alexandria…
Father Hieronymus (fourth century) in his work “Hilarion’s life” also comments on the cult in Elusa, whose inhabitants “worship her (i. e. Venus) because of Lucifer to whose cult the people of the Saraceni are much dedicated”. It is important here that the name of the child of god is said to be Lucifer alias Phosphorus; both he and his mother are often referred to in patristic literature
From the use of the word in Classical Hebrew it appears that Shahar denotes the early dawning morning light with the reddish hue with which the rising sun colours the sky just before and during sunrise: “Morgendämmerung, Morgenröte”
