In the aftermath of the Chalcedonian christological controversey, several writers helped shape the exegetical and theological tradition of the burgeoning miaphysite branch of Syriac Christianity. One of these writers was Daniel of Salah. Previous to Daniel’s work, the standard commentary on the Psalms in the Syriac tradition was the translation of Theodore of Mopsuestia's Greek commentary, but because Theodore’s works were used in the formation of dyophysite christology, it became necessary to produce an exegetical work on the Psalms from the miaphysite position. The present volume presents the Syriac text of Daniel of Salah’s commentary in vocalized Serto script in dual columns. Citations from the Psalms that Daniel provides and then discusses are set off from the rest of the text in bold and italic font.

    The Center and the Source

    This book proposes a model for explaining unity and diversity in early Christianity that centers about a clear confessional identity, allowing both extreme expressions of diversity of texts and traditions while explaining the exclusion of teachers, texts, and traditions that deviated from the confessional norm.

    Jewish Cultural Elements in the Ethiopian Orthodox Täwaḥədo Church

    This monograph traces how ‘Jewish’ elements were introduced into and disseminated throughout the Ethiopian Orthodox Täwaḥədo Church through a series of multi-layered, socio-politico-cultural processes. Drawing on historical and literary evidence, Afework tracks the incorporation of Jewish features into the Ethiopian Orthodox Church from pre-Aksumite Christianity, before the fourth century, through the sixteenth century.

    George, Bishop of the Arabs

    George was one of the last scholarly Syrian Orthodox bishops to live in the early Islamic period. His metrical homily, probably composed to be sung during the consecration of the Myron, is presented here with the vocalised Syriac text and English translation on facing pages.

    Seeing Islam as Others Saw It

    This seminal work continues to shape the thought of specialists studying the Late Antique crossroads at which Christian, Jewish, Zoroastrian, and Islamic histories met, by offering the field a new approach to the vexing question of how to write the early history of Islam. The new edition of the study produces the original text with the addition of a substantial forward in which Hoyland discusses how the field has developed over the two decades that proceeded the book’s first publication. Hoyland also shares some personal reflections on how his thinking has since developed and the potential impact of this on the findings of the original study. The book also includes new appendices that detail the later publications of the author.
