Gorgias Encyclopedic Dictionary of the Syriac Heritage by Sebastian Brock
The Gorgias Encyclopedic Dictionary of the Syriac Heritage (GEDSH) is the first major encyclopedia-type reference work devoted exclusively to Syriac Christianity, both as a field of scholarly inquiry and as the inheritance of Syriac Christians today. In more than 600 entries it covers the Syriac heritage from its beginnings in the first centuries of the Common Era up to the present day. Special attention is given to authors, literary works, scholars, and locations that are associated with the Classical Syriac tradition. Within this tradition, the diversity of Syriac Christianity is highlighted as well as Syriac Christianity’s broader literary and historical contexts, with major entries devoted to Greek and Arabic authors and more general themes, such as Syriac Christianity’s contacts with Judaism and Islam, and with Armenian, Coptic, Ethiopian, and Georgian Christianities.

Among the early attempts to bring ancient languages together, Manna’s lexicon is a landmark. A concise comparison between Syriac, the language of the Chaldean Church, and Arabic, the language of the contemporary culture, this work has eminently practical application. Originally a tool for Arabic-speaking Chaldean Christians, this dictionary quickly became a standard reference tool for scholars of Syriac as well. By printing this scarce resource, Gorgias Press now makes this insightful lexicon widely available to western scholars.

Eugene Manna (1867-1928) was a Chaldean educator and priest. He was eventually consecrated bishop, but after disagreements with his hierarchy, he disappeared, leaving his episcopal cross and ring in his room. Several days later his body was found in the Tigris River. In addition to his lexicon, he wrote a Syriac grammar and a two-volume collection of Syriac literature.
