A critical edition of the Syriac letter of Eusebius to Carpianus, this study makes available a Latin translation of this epistle. This important text comparing the harmony of the four Gospels represents an early attempt to account for the differences between the evangelists: ten canonical tables demonstrate how the Gospels might be harmonized. To this translation Gwilliam adds comments on the Ammonian sections, the Eusebian canons and harmonizing tables, annotated with reference to the Peshitto and other relevant manuscripts. The result is a comprehensive survey of the material available to demonstrate how the thorny issue of the Synoptic Problem was viewed in the fourth century.

George Henry Gwilliam, Fellow of Hertford College and editor of the influential Oxford Peshito, was a noted champion of the importance of Syriac for understanding the textual criticism of the New Testament. Along with P. E. Pusey, Gwilliam published a standard-setting critical edition of the Peshitta.

The Problem of Evil

Ibn Sina's Theodicy
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0654-3
Who of us has not wondered why a God with absolute attributes causes or allows evil in the world? This most puzzling issue, known as the problem of evil, received significant attention from Ibn Sina. In the present work, Dr. Inati argues that Ibn Sina provides seven theses to justify God's causing or allowing the presence of evil, and that only the thesis which relies on God’s omnipotence as defined by Ibn Sina eliminates the problem of evil in his philosophy. The book is an original piece of work and the first comprehensive study of Ibn Sina's Theodicy, which helped shape later Islamic and Christian treatments of the subject and left significant marks on the thought of major medieval philosophers, including Ibn Rushd, Aquinas and Suarez.
