Alexandrian philosopher and theologian John Philoponus (c.490-c.575), also known as John the Grammarian, wrote several philosophical works (surviving in Greek) mostly pertaining to the criticism of certain Aristotelian doctrines, but also a number of works dealing with theology, and these are generally known only in Syriac translation. This volume is concerned with the latter category of Philoponus’ works. Sanda offers an introduction, the Syriac texts edited from Vatican and British Museum manuscripts, and Latin translations; in addition, there is a helpful section entitled “Argumentum Opusculorum” which gives a detailed outline of each of the works included here, namely: 1. Diaitetes, or Arbiter, 2. Epitome of the Diaitetes, 3. Answering Doubts, 4. Treatise to Sergius, 5. Treatise on Difference, Number, and Division, and 6. Letter to Justinian. This collection of texts will be of great interest to students and scholars of philosophy and theology in Late Antiquity, as well as to those working in Syriac literature and Greek-Syriac translations.

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.
