Baethgen describes a Syriac text purporting to be a translation of a commentary on the psalms by Theodore of Mopsuestia and including also commentary on Exodus 15, Isaiah 42:10–13, and Deuteronomy 32. He establishes that it cannot be a simple translation of Theodore's commentary, both because it is clearly based on the Peshitta rather than the LXX and because it does not agree with the surviving Greek fragments of Theodore's commentary. It does, however, follow Theodore's structure and method and must contain much that derives from him. Where it does parallel the surviving Greek fragments, it abbreviates them greatly. Meyer presents detailed comparisons of several passages from the Syriac with what is known of Theodore's work and an extended selection of other material in German translation.

The East Syriac Psalm Headings

A Critical Edition
Series: Texts and Studies 8
ISBN: 978-1-61143-867-3
The Psalm Headings remain one of the most difficult and puzzling pieces of the Hebrew Bible. The present study looks at how these titles were treated in the East Syriac traditions. This volume gives a history of research and presents a new critical edition based on previously unpublished manuscripts. The Psalm headings in the East Syriac tradition reflect the exegesis of the Antiochene school, especially Diodore of Tarsus and Theodore of Mopsuestia. The headings contain a summary of Theodore's exegesis which had an important influence on the work of Syriac interpreters such as Ishodad of Merv and Bar Hebraeus.

Women in Aphrahat: Some Observations

Series: Analecta Gorgiana 1039

Fourth-century Aphrahat is characterized as misogynist, especially when he compares women to Satan. This may be an unintended result of contemporary Christian literature. The the eschatological context of Aphrahat’s asceticism, salvific role of Mary, victimization in Aphrahat’s work, and positive statements about women negotiate this view.
