The rare occasion of Syriac monks translating the work of a Greek heathen author make this present tract of considerable interest. Nestle gives an English translation as well as a Syriac edition of Plutarch’s tract on “The Advantage to be Derived from One’s Enemies,” from a manuscript dating from the sixth or seventh century. Also included is a comparative index of the significant Greek/Syriac words. The present edition is the historic first printing of a Syriac edition made available to European scholars of an overlooked manuscript of the Sinaitic Covent material.
Eberhard Nestle (1851-1913) was a renowned biblical scholar who taught at Tubingen University. He is best known for his work on the Nestle Edition of the Greek New Testament.
