This work retells the life of the Bishop Marutha of Maipherkat, or Martyropolis, as translated from the Armenian text. Bishop Marutha was twice envoy from the East Roman Empire to Yezdegerd I of Persia, and his theological work is preserved in the Church of the East. His work includes a written history of the Persian martyrs, and tradition ascribes the name of his city to the number of relics he brought back. In addition to the original Armenian text, also referenced are a useful selection of other writings about him in Greek, Syriac, and Arabic. This compilation contains many details of Bishop Marutha's missions not recorded elsewhere, and his life illuminates our understanding of Christianity in the early fifth century.

The Syriac Presence in the Armenian Translation of the Bible, with Special Reference to the Book of

Syriac and Armenian Christians interacted regionally and theologically. This paper investigates whether it is thus a viable proposition to deduce Syriac readings from Armenian biblical translations. Cox concludes on a case-basis because extensive use of a similar source text remains questionable.

Hunayn ibn Ishaq and the Kitab Adab al-falasifah

With a focus on the Kitāb Ādāb al-falāsifah, a book of aphorisms attributed to Ḥunayn ibn Isḥāq, some of the important aspects of the Kitāb are laid out, particularly those dealing with religion and the pursuit of philosophy. Although putatively, translators and scholars such as Ḥunayn ibn Isḥāq, opened the way for philosophical dialogue between Muslims and Christians of Orthodox churches on precepts, often based on Aristotle, which they could agree would lead to wisdom and a humane society.
