The Nomocanons of the Eastern Orthodox traditions offer valuable information and insight into the history of the people who recorded them and the churches they represented. These Nomocanons were often overlooked in favor of other, more traditional sources, but eventually they were recognized for the intrinsic historical value they carried. At the beginning of this article, Franz Cöln notes that many have recognized the value of the Nonocanons, but laments that some traditions are still neglected—specifically the Coptic Alexandrine tradition preserved variously in Coptic, Arabic and Ethiopic. In order to rectify this neglect, Cöln publishes here the collated text of three manuscripts of the Nomocanon attributed to Michael (Miha’il) of Malig. Two of the manuscripts preserve the text in Arabic script, but the fullest witness of the text is in the third manuscript, preserved in Garshuni. Cöln uses the latter manuscript as the base text for the collation, but includes variants from the Arabic manuscripts in an apparatus. Cöln provides an introduction to the text, including a discussion of the identity of Miha’il and his relationship to the author of a Synaxarion attributed to the same name. Cöln also supplements the text of the Nomocanon with a German translation.
