Jacob of Sarug’s Homily on the Veil on Moses’ Face

Metrical Homilies of Mar Jacob of Sarug
Translation and Introduction by Sebastian P. Brock
ISBN: 978-1-59333-644-8
This edition of Mar Jacob of Sarug's (d. 521) homily on the Veil of Moses asks what the veil means. Jacob finds the hermeneutical key in Paul’s exegesis of Gen. 2:24 – that the man and the woman becoming one symbolizes Christ and the Church. The bride must wear a veil until such time as her bridegroom comes to remove it at their marriage ceremony. The volume constitutes a fascicle of The Metrical Homilies of Mar Jacob of Sarug, which, when complete, will contain the original Syriac text of Jacob's surviving sermons, fully vocalized, alongside an annotated English translation.

Theory and Practice in Islamic Constitutionalism

From Classical Fiqh to Modern Systems
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0693-2
This groundbreaking study investigates theories of Islamic constitutionalism as expressed and implemented throughout the history of Islam. To achieve this, it first traces the roots of caliphate embedded within the seminal legal and political works of classical and modern Muslim thinkers. In its concluding chapters, the study maps out and discusses the subsequent transition of Islamic and Muslim governance into twentieth-century approaches to constitutionalism. Longo's resourceful and meticulous approach sheds new light on constitutionalism within the contemporary Muslim world and how it continues to be informed by, or departs from classical theories of Islamic and Muslim governance.

Daughter Zion's Trauma

A Trauma Informed Reading of Lamentations
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0744-1
Daughter Zion's Trauma offers a new critical reading of the Book of Lamentations through the lens of trauma studies. Through structural analysis and use of the concept of non-referential history as a heuristic lens, Yansen yields fresh insights into the book’s form, language, and larger "historical" significance. Utilizing insights from study of the rhetorical dimensions of the trauma process in cultural trauma, this study asserts that Lamentations strategically adapts certain religious traditions to ensure the survival of those whose voices it echoes.
