An Arabic Version of the Acts of the Apostles and the Seven Catholic Epistles


From an Eighth and Ninth Century Ms. in the Convent of St. Catharine on Mount Sinai


The variety of Arabic versions of the New Testament is bewildering. In this work, Gibson provides one particular text of the Acts of the Apostles, as well as those of the Minor Catholic Epistles, based on an eighth or ninth century manuscript, preserved at the Convent of St. Catharine in Sinai. The volume also includes a treatise on the Triune nature of God, with an English translation.

In this work, Gibson provides one particular text of the Acts of the Apostles, as well as those of the Minor Catholic Epistles, based on an eighth or ninth century manuscript, preserved at the Convent of St. Catharine in Sinai. This particular Arabic translation seems to be a translation from the Syriac version, Peshitta in the case of the Book of Acts, and the Philoxenian in the case of the Minor Catholic Epistles. The volume also includes a treatise on the Triune nature of God, with an English translation.
