Gregory Bar Hebraeus, also known as Abul-Faraj bin Harun al-Malati, is a prominent figure in the history of Syriac Christianity. He was a prolific writer and translator, and his extant writings provide some of the most important historical sources for the Syriac and Arabic Christian traditions. While he is most well known for his historical writings, Gregory also produced a grammar of the Syriac language. Gregory's grammar was not the first Syriac grammar ever produced, but it was by far the most comprehensive and thorough. The presentation of concepts in this grammar also influenced later Syriac grammars, and despite the production of many more Syriac grammars since then, Gregory's volume is still useful today as a helpful reference work. The edited text of the work is presented in a Serto script, and it includes Latin chapter titles at the head of each page and parenthetical Scripture references when appropriate.

Mary and Joseph, and Other Dialogue Poems on Mary

ISBN: 978-1-59333-839-8
What was Joseph’s reaction when he arrived home to find Mary pregnant? How did Mary manage to persuade him that her child was none other than the Son of God? The Syriac literary tradition had a unique way of answering these sorts of questions raised by the Bible. Dialogue poems (sughyotho) offer lively, thought-provoking, and often delightful re-imaginings of Biblical events. They expand the Biblical stories, giving the familiar characters more dialogue and describing their inner thoughts. The collection provides five dialogue poems featuring Mary, in Syriac original with facing English translation.
