From the beginning of printing in the Ottoman Empire, Ottoman minorities have always played a central role, and the same pattern holds true for journalism in the Ottoman Empire. This volume presents the contributions of Ottoman and Turkish Jewry to publishing and printing. Avner Levy discusses Jewish newspapers and magazines in the Turkish republic and Gad Nassi examines Ottoman Jewish journals. Yaron Ben-Na’eh’s article describes Ottoman Hebrew printing houses. Finally, Rifat Bali contributes a bibliography of works on journalism and printing by Jews in the Ottoman Empire. The book also contains a collection of images of Jewish books and periodicals.

The New Syriac Primer, 2nd Edition

Series: Gorgias Handbooks 9
ISBN: 978-1-59333-325-6
A truly useful introduction to the Syriac language is a rare find. This practical initiation to the study of this ancient language of the Christian church speaks with clarity and authority. A fruitful integration of scholarly introduction and practical application, this primer is more than a simple grammar or syntactic introduction to the language. Writing in a style designed for beginners, Kiraz avoids technical language and strives for a reader-friendly inductive approach. Readings from actual Syriac texts allow the student to experience the language first hand and the basics of the grammar of the language are ably explained. The book comes with downloadable material so that readers may listen to all reading sentences and text passages in the book.

Jacob of Sarug’s Homily on the Partaking of the Holy Mysteries

Translation and Introduction by Amir Harrak
ISBN: 978-1-60724-086-0
This edition of Mar Jacob of Sarug's (d. 521) homily on Partaking in the Holy Mysteries is one of Jacob’s memre on the sacraments. In this homily, Jacob is shocked that some of his congregants are leaving the service early, before the eucharist has been celebrated. He emphasizes the importance of the liturgical celebrations for a Christian life in a message still applicable today. The volume constitutes a fascicle of The Metrical Homilies of Mar Jacob of Sarug, which, when complete, will contain the original Syriac text of Jacob's surviving sermons, fully vocalized, alongside an annotated English translation.
