This book consists of a series of studies of Codex Zacynthius (Cambridge, University Library MS Add. 10062), the earliest surviving New Testament commentary manuscript in catena format. A research project funded by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council has produced new multispectral images of the palimpsest undertext in order to enable a thorough investigation of the manuscript and the creation of a complete electronic edition. This volume, co-authored by the members of the project, will provide a full account of the research undertaken by the project. Many advances have resulted from this research, which will be presented here for the first time in print.

Codex Zacynthius (Cambridge, University Library MS Add. 10062) is one of the most intriguing manuscripts of the Greek New Testament. Beneath the pages of a gospel lectionary copied around the end of the twelfth century are the remains of a much earlier commentary on the Gospel according to Luke. This appears to be the oldest surviving New Testament catena manuscript, with extracts from a variety of early Christian writers arranged in a frame around the biblical text. By creating new state-of-the-art multispectral images, a research project funded by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council has produced a complete transcription of both the undertext and overtext of the manuscript for the first time. This research has led to new discoveries about the manuscript and its history, which are presented here along with extensive information about the contents and structure of the catena and the lectionary. The studies in this volume complement the digital edition of the manuscript in the Cambridge Digital Library and the printed edition and translation of the catena also published in the Texts and Studies series.

REVIEWS

The book offers a wealth of nuanced individual observations that can hardly be appreciated enough for their detail and richness. In addition, the numerous colour images printed in the book are worthy of particular commendation, as they present an extremely welcome and helpful visual supplement. … All in all, this easily readable and technically excellent set of edited studies offers an excellent working tool for anyone who wants to study the Codex Zacynthius.
From: Das Buch bietet hier eine Fülle an nuancierten Einzelbeobachtungen, die in ihrer Ausführlichkeit und Reichhaltigkeit kaum genug zu würdigen sind. Eigens positiv hervorzuheben sind darüber hinaus die im Buch abgedruckten zahlreichen Farbbilder, die eine äußert willkommene und überaus hilfreiche visuelle Ergänzung ... darstellen.
Alles in allem bietet die vorliegende, gut lesbare und technisch hervorragend redigierte Studie ein exzellentes Arbeitsinstrument für jeden, der sich mit dem Codex Zacynthius beschäftigen möchte.

Jacob of Sarug's Homilies on Jacob

On Jacob’s Revelation at Bethel and On our Lord and Jacob, on the Church and Rachel and on Leah and the Synagogue
Translated by Dana Miller; Edited with Notes and Introduction by Mary T. Hansbury
ISBN: 978-1-4632-4189-6
Recognized as a saint by both Chalcedonian and non-Chalcedonian Christians alike, Jacob of Sarug (d. 521) produced many narrative poems that have rarely been translated into English. Of his reported 760 metrical homilies, only about half survive. Part of a series of fascicles containing the bilingual Syriac-English editions of Saint Jacob of Sarug’s homilies, this volume contains two of his homilies on Jacob. The Syriac text is fully vocalized, and the translation is annotated with a commentary and biblical references. The volume is one of the fascicles of Gorgias Press’s Complete Homilies of Saint Jacob of Sarug, which, when complete, will contain all of Jacob’s surviving sermons.
