This translation of the Life of St. Nino, from the standard Lives of Georgian Saints by Gobron Sabinin, makes readily available the basic hagiography of this important figure of Christianity in Georgia. St. Nino, apart from her personal significance, also represents the important place that women held in the introduction of Christianity to this nation. The editors provide a useful discussion of the critical material for the manuscript in the preface, noting important deviations from the standard text. Also included in this volume are chapters 8 through 11 of the Armenian Version of the text by Djouansher, as translated by F. C. Conybeare.

Margery Wardrop (1869-1909), sister of the British diplomat Sir John Oliver Wardrop, was a noted collector and translator of Georgian folk-literature. Her 1894 collection, Georgian Folk-Tales, Vol. I, was the first collection of such folktales available in English. Her work included the translation of important material for understanding the culture of pre-Soviet Georgia.

Isaac the Syrian's Spiritual Works

Edited and Translated by Mary T. Hansbury
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0593-5
Isaac the Syrian lived the solitary life in the 7th century. He was born in Qatar and subsequently lived in present day Iraq and Iran. After life as a monk, then briefly as a bishop, he withdrew to live the solitary life. These discourses are primarily for solitaries to consolidate them in the love and mercy of God. In this volume, the text of Isaac V has also been included because of the light which it sheds on Apocatastasis, of increasing interest in academic and ecclesial circles.
