Likely a result of the emulation of Biblical forms of poetry, acrostic poems and hymns were common in the Syriac tradition. These acrostics are valuable, not only for text-critical purposes, but also for the methods of biblical interpretation evident in their composition. Bruno Kirschner publishes here the Syriac text of seven full acrostic Sogiatha hymns and accompanies each with a brief introduction and a German translation. In the introduction to these hymns, Kirschner provies a brief overview of acrostic poetry in the Syriac tradition, including its reliance upon Biblical models. Kirschner also includes a list of the manuscripts that he collated to produce the published text.
