This work, the author’s dissertation, has for its subject a unique Syriac poem (301 lines) on philosophy, particularly of the Aristotelian variety, and wisdom generally. After a thorough introduction touching on the manuscripts used for the work (from Berlin), the intellectual milieu out of which the poem came, and of course its content, he presents a critical edition of the text, (mostly) vocalized and with German translation. The text will be of interest to readers concerned with the reception of Greek philosophy in Syriac and Syriac poetry.

The Rabbis’ King-Parables

Midrash From the Third-Century Roman Empire
ISBN: 978-1-61719-159-6
The Rabbis’ King-Parables: Midrash From the Third-Century Roman Empire examines the ancient Rabbis at work using parables about kings; parables that reflect the Rabbis' ideas about the role of the ruler in society, and the relationship of humanity to God. It considers the parables as resistance literature in light of the work of theorists of dominated groups. It is the first systematic attempt to read the parables as sources for Roman history in over 100 years.
