In the period following the fall of the Roman Empire, Latin as the imperial language was gradually replaced by the regional dialects that developed into the modern romance languages. One such dialect, commonly known as Mozarabic, was spoken by the native inhabitants of the Iberian Peninsula who lived under Muslim rule. The language is also frequently called “old Spanish” because it was the precursor to the development of modern Spanish. The liturgy that developed in the post-Latin dialects were certainly influenced by the Latin liturgies, but that may not have been the only source of influence. In the present essay, Anton Baumstark compares elements of the “old-Spanish” liturgy with eastern liturgies, particularly Byzantine and Egyptian liturgies, in order to demonstrate an “oriental” influence.

Meccan Trade and the Rise of Islam

ISBN: 978-1-59333-102-3
Patricia Crone reassesses one of the most widely accepted dogmas in contemporary accounts of the beginnings of Islam: the supposition that Mecca was a trading center. In addition, she seeks to elucidate sources on which we should reconstruct our picture of the birth of the new religion in Arabia.

Approximation of the ‘traditions’ in Jacob of Edessa’s Revision of Isaiah

Series: Analecta Gorgiana 124
ISBN: 978-1-60724-036-5
This article contributes to the knowledge of Jacob of Edessa’s (d. 708) Old Testament revision by editing twenty texts (a total of 80 verses) from the Book of Isaiah and comparing them with the Greek recensions of the Septuagint, with the Peshitta, and the Syrohexapla. Two special features are introduced to set out Jacob’s revision technique in some detail: 1. comparison with an earlier undeveloped stage of Jacob’s revision extant in Ms Add 17,134 of the British Library; and 2. the distinction (by different colours and fonts) of the ‘traditions’ involved in the definite stage of his revision. Both features point to the emphasis given to the Peshitta in translating the substantial Greek text of the Old Testament.

Christian and Muslim Dialogues

The Religious Uses of a Literary Form in the Early Islamic Middle East
ISBN: 978-1-61719-941-7
Linked by a common geography and claim to the true religion, Christians and Muslims had a long history of interreligious discourse up to the Crusades. These faith communities composed texts in the form of dialogues in light of their encounters with one another. This book surveys the development of the genre and how dialogues determined the patterns of conversation. Each chapter highlights a thematic feature of the literary form, demonstrating that Christian and Muslim authors did not part ways in the first century of Islamic rule, but rather continued a dialogue commending God’s faithful believers.

A Place Between Two Places

The Quranic Barzakh
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0612-3
For believers in a resurrection of the body, there arises the question of what happens after death but before the Last Day: the intermediate state. For most Muslims, the intermediate state is the barzakh. It is a fantastical and frightening time in the grave. The present study will examine where the belief in the barzakh comes from through a study of the Qur'an.
