A collection of Syriac medical remedies, from a manuscript dated 1888; the origin is uncertain:. A weird and wonderful collection; the remedies for sore eyes range from black earth and honey, to buck's liver, to salamander excrement. Perhaps more indicative of the medical problems of Syria than its medical knowledge, although these recipes may be as useful to the anthropologist as the Syriac Galen which the editor hoped for when he first saw the inscription

The New Syriac Primer, 2nd Edition

Series: Gorgias Handbooks 9
ISBN: 978-1-59333-325-6
A truly useful introduction to the Syriac language is a rare find. This practical initiation to the study of this ancient language of the Christian church speaks with clarity and authority. A fruitful integration of scholarly introduction and practical application, this primer is more than a simple grammar or syntactic introduction to the language. Writing in a style designed for beginners, Kiraz avoids technical language and strives for a reader-friendly inductive approach. Readings from actual Syriac texts allow the student to experience the language first hand and the basics of the grammar of the language are ably explained. The book comes with downloadable material so that readers may listen to all reading sentences and text passages in the book.

A Syriac Lexicon

A Translation from the Latin, Correction, Expansion, and Update of C. Brockelmann’s Lexicon Syriacum
ISBN: 978-1-60724-620-6
The second edition of Carl Brockelmann’s Lexicon Syriacum, published in 1928, is a highly reputable Syriac dictionary. However, its Latin language and the ordering of words according to triliteral Semitic roots make its use difficult for most students and scholars. This revised edition by Sokoloff renders meanings in English, arranges words alphabetically, and includes many useful tools on a CD.
