This article examines a letter composed by an Ugaritian administrator stationed in Cyprus. A new edition and translation of the text is offered, which allows for a more accurate linguistic and historical analysis of its content. Certain elements in the text, such as a unique blessing formula (lines 6–9), indicate that the letter’s addressee was not in fact the Pharaoh Amenophis III, but rather the King of Ugarit. In addition, a new reading of the final section of the text (line 39) suggests that the administrator intends to purchase ships on behalf of his Ugaritian overlord.

John the Solitary on the Soul

Translation and Introduction by Mary T. Hansbury
ISBN: 978-1-60724-044-0
In this treatise, John the Solitary (ca. 390) enters into a dialogue with two disciples who have come past the beginning stage of the spiritual life and have brought him their struggle against the passions in the life of the inner person (barnâšâ gawwâyâ). John’s description of the life of the soul is outlined here in a framework of the stages of the spiritual life. Included is his analysis of the passions, showing very little if any Evagrian influence. The Dialogue on the Soul is a difficult text. It is hoped that this Syriac-English presentation will enable others to take the discussion forward. John’s genial thought merits this.

Calling Out to Isis

The Enduring Nubian Presence at Philae
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0715-1
The expansion of the cult of the goddess Isis throughout the Mediterranean world demonstrates the widespread appeal of Egyptian religion in the Greco-Roman period. In this monograph, Ashby focuses on an oft-neglected population in studies of this phenomenon: Nubian worshipers. Through examination of prayer inscriptions and legal agreements engraved on temple walls, as well as Ptolemaic royal decrees and temple imagery, Ashby sheds new light on the involvement of Nubians in the Egyptian temples of Lower Nubia, and further draws comparisons between Nubian cultic practices and the Meroitic royal funerary cult.

Apophatic Anthropology

An English Translation
By André Scrima; Translated by Octavian Gabor
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0565-2
An English translation of André Scrima's 1952 work on Apophatic Anthropology. Pascalian in essence, the approach departs from the Augustinian roots of Western Christian theology and develops a Christian anthropology based on Eastern Orthodoxy. The endeavor of a human being to understand oneself does not lead, as in the case of Pascal, to identification with Jesus Christ’s suffering, but further, to an attempt of deification, theosis, in which the main concept is Incarnation. This attempt opens to man the possibility to conceive himself as interior to God. Man becomes therefore the physical and metaphysical bridge between creation and the uncreated, the only creature that bears the image of God.
