Buy this book together with The Forgotten Genocide: Eastern Christians, The Last Arameans by Sebastien de Courtois
Scholarly study of the transmission of Aristotelian philosophy from Greek late antiquity to medieval Islam is to some extent still influenced by the account in Ibn Abī Uṣaibi‛a attributed to al-Fārābī, which served as the basis for Max Meyerhof’s famous essay Von Alexandrien nach Bagdad. The present work, utilising evidence unknown to Meyerhof and still often neglected in more recent scholarship, argues that such a restriction never represented the whole Syriac tradition, but reflects an alternative logical curriculum with deep roots in the ancient world, while Syriac writers who were proficient in Greek adhered throughout to the other strand of this two-strand tradition, that of the full Organon. +The first and only extensive treatment of the genocide of the Aramaic-speaking Christians of the Middle East, in particular the Syriac Orthodox communities, in the late 1800s and early 1900s under the Ottomans. Courtois bases his study on the diplomatic archives of the French Foreign Affairs office (Quai d'Orsay), the archives of the Dominican Mission at Mosul, Iraq, written eyewitness accounts, and oral interviews with genocide survivors conducted by the author.Save $13.49

A Greek and Syriac Index to Sergius of Reshaina’s Version of the De Mundo by Adam McCollum
Sergius of Reshaina (d. 536), translated the (pseudo-)Aristotelian text known as the De Mundo from Greek into Syriac in the early sixth century. The earlier period of Greek-Syriac translation was characterized by freer versions, while in the seventh century there are very good examples of literalism. Since Sergius worked at a time between these two periods, his translation will be of special interest to Greek and Syriac scholars.

Hunayn ibn Ishaq and the Kitab Adab al-falasifah: The Pursuit of Wisdom and a Humane Polity in Early Abbasid Baghdad by Sidney Griffith
With a focus on the Kitāb Ādāb al-falāsifah, a book of aphorisms attributed to Ḥunayn ibn Isḥāq, some of the important aspects of the Kitāb are laid out, particularly those dealing with religion and the pursuit of philosophy. Although putatively, translators and scholars such as Ḥunayn ibn Isḥāq, opened the way for philosophical dialogue between Muslims and Christians of Orthodox churches on precepts, often based on Aristotle, which they could agree would lead to wisdom and a humane society.

Scholarly study of the transmission of Aristotelian philosophy from Greek late antiquity to medieval Islam is to some extent still influenced by the account in Ibn Abi U?aibi?a attributed to al-Farabi, which served as the basis for Max Meyerhof’s famous essay Von Alexandrien nach Bagdad. While much in that account is now regarded as fictional and tendentious, the extant corpus of Syriac Aristotelian texts is still widely held to authenticate one aspect of it, namely, that from some time in late antiquity until the coming of Islam, the study of Aristotelian logic was limited in the Christian Orient to the early books of the Organon terminating at Prior Analytics I 7. The present work, utilising evidence unknown to Meyerhof and still often neglected in more recent scholarship, argues that such a restriction never represented the whole Syriac tradition, but reflects an alternative logical curriculum with deep roots in the ancient world, while Syriac writers who were proficient in Greek adhered throughout to the other strand of this two-strand tradition, that of the full Organon.

John Watt teaches in the Department of Religious Studies at Cardiff University in the UK. A special interest in Syriac rhetoric, first aroused when he was a researcher in the Sonderforschungsbereich Orientalistik at the University of Göttingen, Germany, is reflected in many of his publications, notably Aristotelian Rhetoric in Syriac. Bar Hebraeus, Butyrum Sapientiae, Book of Rhetoric (Leiden, 2005).
