Owen Lattimore, a historian of Central Asia, presents the first report on Kwei-hua, the ruined city of the Syriac-Ongut Turks. The city once contained distinctively Christian monuments; Lattimore describes the ruins and discusses the history of the area since the Mongol empire. Photographs and maps are included. Scholars interested in comparative history, particularly the broad reach of Syriac-speaking societies across Asia, will find this an intriguing read.

Religious Dynamics in a Sasanian Context
Edited by Geoffrey Herman
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0250-7
The Sasanian Empire was home to many religious communities. It was also a place of meeting and transformation. The studies in this volume encompass a diverse array of topics concerning these religious communities inhabiting the Sasanian Empire. Some include the Roman East in their deliberations. Most, however, deal with the interaction of one or other religious community based in the Sasanian Empire with the dominant religion of the empire, Zoroastrianism.

John the Solitary on the Soul

Translation and Introduction by Mary T. Hansbury
ISBN: 978-1-60724-044-0
In this treatise, John the Solitary (ca. 390) enters into a dialogue with two disciples who have come past the beginning stage of the spiritual life and have brought him their struggle against the passions in the life of the inner person (barnâšâ gawwâyâ). John’s description of the life of the soul is outlined here in a framework of the stages of the spiritual life. Included is his analysis of the passions, showing very little if any Evagrian influence. The Dialogue on the Soul is a difficult text. It is hoped that this Syriac-English presentation will enable others to take the discussion forward. John’s genial thought merits this.
