While cataloguing a series of Syriac and Arabic manuscripts at the University Library of Cambridge, William Wright discovered a partially mutilated manuscript containing a previously unknown recension of the text “Secular Laws of the Emperors Constantine, Theodosius, and Leo.” A previous publication of these materials by P. Bruns and E. Sachau had revealed four recensions of the “Laws,” two of which were in Syriac, and Wright’s manuscript contained a significantly different version of the text. In the present article, Wright publishes various excerpts of the Syriac text, along with translation, in order to demonstrate the differences found in this recension.
