This volume is concerned with the 12th/13th cent. Church of the East author Shem‘on Shanqlawaya, excerpts of whose Chronicon is here given in Syriac and in German translation on the basis of three Berlin manuscripts of the work. Shem‘on’s work, requested by his pupil John bar Zo‘bi, is a calendrical work on heortology (feasts) in question-and-answer format. The introduction covers the expected subjects: the three Berlin manuscripts used for the edition, identifying the author, the date of composition, and Shem‘on’s sources. The rest of Shem‘on’s work remains unedited, so this volume is of unique importance for a little known author.

The Acts of Saint George and the Story of his Father

From the Syriac and Garshuni Versions
ISBN: 978-1-59333-784-1
One of the most enduring of the saints, Saint George has seldom failed to capture the imagination of Christian readers, both ancient and modern. The Acts of Saint George, originally written in Greek, quickly spread to many linguistic traditions in the church of late antiquity. Presented here in vocalized Syriac and Arabic, the original text of the Acts is made easily accessible to readers of these languages. A detailed introduction in English summarizes the hagiography for those unacquainted with the Semitic languages. The account follows the hagiographic practice of describing the trials, steadfast faith, and martyrdom of the saint. Also included is the story of the father of Saint George, recorded in Syriac.
