The eminent Barhebraeus (d. 1286) dealt with the subject of the human soul in at least two Arabic treatises. Here, Syrian Orthodox Patriarch and scholar Ignatius Aphrem I Barsoum (1887-1957) presents one of these treatises first edited by Paul Sbath. Specific subjects include proofs for the existence of the soul, its definition, proofs given by philosophers for the union of body and soul, the creation of the soul, metempsychosis, the soul in animals, and several others. The text is annotated with explanations, cross references, and biblical citations.
