The eminent Italian scholar of eastern Christianity Ignazio Guidi (1844-1935) here presents a critical edition of the Statutes of the School of Nisibis, prefaced by a historical and textual introduction.
Guidi, in this long article, presents an edition and thoroughly annotated Italian translation of the Syriac “Letter on the Himyarite Martyrs,” which deals with the persecution of Christians in Nagran, from author and bishop, Simeon of Beth Arsham.
The present work contains a number of previously unedited eastern Christian texts (Coptic, Syriac, Arabic, Ethiopic, and Armenian) related to the well-known legend of the Seven Sleepers, edited and translated by the eminent Italian scholar Ignazio Guidi.
