Gewargis Warda (13th cent.), an important Church of the East poet about whom little is known, was the author of a collection of hymns known as the Book of the Rose (warda in Syriac). In this volume, Hilgenfeld presents a critical edition of nine of his poems, mostly on contemporary events: four poems on famine and other calamities, one on the Mongolian attack on Karmalish 1235/6, the deacon Abraham, John the Baptist, Tahmazgerd and the martyrs of Karkha d-Beth Slokh, and Jacob of Beth Lapat. The poems are also translated into German with annotations and an introduction. Readers interested in later Syriac poetry or in 13th century history of this region will welcome the reprinting of this book.

Myth, Text, and History at Sparta

Edited by Thomas Figueira
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0595-9
Three studies that offer close readings concerning the interaction of the source material on Spartan history with the unfolding of actual historical events. These contributions take the position that not only political, but also social, policies at Sparta, as well as the historical actors giving them shape, were intensely─and to an unusual degree─influenced by myth, tradition, and popular memory about the Laconian past.

Contemporary Examinations of Classical Languages (Hebrew, Aramaic, Syriac, and Greek)

Valency, Lexicography, Grammar, and Manuscripts
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0656-7
Ancient language study is becoming an increasingly sophisticated and complex discipline, as scholars not only consider methods being used by specialists of other languages, but also absorb developments in other disciplines to facilitate their own research investigations. This interdisciplinary approach is reflected in the scope of research papers offered here, invited and peer-reviewed by the ISLP.

The Chronicle of Zuqnīn

Parts I and II. From the Creation to the Year 506/7 AD
Edited and Translated by Amir Harrak
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0663-5
The Chronicle of Zuqnin is a universal history beginning with the Creation according to the biblical account and ending with the time of the Chronicler, the years 775-776 AD. The author is most probably Joshua the Stylite, a contemporary of the Caliphs al-Mansur and al-Mahdi, who lived in the monastery of Zuqnin that was located near Amid, the Diar-Bakr of modern Turkey. Parts I and II contain compiled sources some of which survived only in this Chronicle. Sources include the Bible, Cave of Treasures, the Sleepers of Ephesus, Eusebius of Caesarea, Socrates, and the short Chronicle called Pseudo-Joshua the Stylite that deals with Sassanian-Byzantine warfare at the begging of the 6th century. Parts III and IV cover the years 488 and 775 AD. In this volume, Parts I and II, including the author’s dedicatory letter, are now published in an updated edition of the Syriac text and the first English translation.
