East Syriac author Eliya (or Elias) of Nisibis, also known in Syriac as Eliya bar Shinaya, (975–1046), who wrote in both Arabic and Syriac, was Metropolitan of Nisibis from the beginning of the eleventh century. Among other works, a Chronography and dictionary survive. In this volume, it is the former work that is translated. Delaporte’s introduction supplies information on Eliya himself, on the manuscript used, and the Chronography itself and its sources. Eliya’s work, beginning in remote history, is a Chronography in the purest sense of the term, that is, it is very focused on dates for historical event and the proper way to determine them, rather than on providing a stretched out narrative in succession. There are numerous lists, tables, and calendars in comparison. The French translation is annotated and there is an index of works and authors cited, as well as proper names.
