The Nomocanon of Metropolitan Abdisho bar Brika of Nisibis (d. 1318) is one of the most important sources for the canon law of the East-Syrian Church. In Canon I of the council held in the year 1318, under the Catholicos Timothy II, this collection was proclaimed the authoritative canon code of the Church of the East. For its importance, this collection is comparable with the Nomocanon of Gregory Bar Hebraeus, a parallel work for the West Syrians. It remains the binding legal collection of the East Syrian Church in the present day. The Nomocanon was the subject of numerous studies and publications.

Manuscript Trichur 64, is the oldest known manuscript of this work. It was written during the lifetime of the author and, as such, is of special importance. At the same time, it is the oldest dated manuscript in the library in the Metropolitan Palace of the Church of the East in Trichur.

Edited by Istvan Perczel and prefaced by Mar Aprem, this volume is introduced by Hubert Kaufhold who is preparing the critical edition of the Nomocanon. His introduction contains the most precise and exhaustive information to date on Abdisho, the Nomocanon, and the Trichur manuscript collection.

The Teachings of Rabbi Mordecai Joseph Leiner of Izbica (Revised edition)
ISBN: 1-59333-337-4
Mordecai Joseph Leiner of Izbica was a unique thinker in the history of Hasidism with a highly personal vision of Judaism. His teachings, partially derived from the Przysucha-Kotsk school, adopted the concept of absolute divine providence as a cornerstone. He also reinterpreted the Lurianic concept of tiqqun, originally intended as a cosmological concept, to apply to the individual, creating a new path to spiritual self-perfection.

The Life of Severus by Zachariah of Mytilene

ISBN: 978-1-59333-841-1
This biography of Severus, the patriarch of Antioch from 512-518 CE, attributed to his schoolmate Zachariah of Mytilene, gives unique information about life in Mediterranean region in the second half of the 5th century. These two young men from wealthy families became involved with a Christian movement, the "philoponoi," "those devoted to work" who combined asceticism with theological study. The work, originally in Greek, survives only in Syriac, which this volume presents alongside the first English translation of it. It is an important source for studies on Ancient Biography, Late Antiquity, and Early Christianity.

The Correspondence of Severus and Sergius

Translation and Introduction by Iain Torrance
ISBN: 978-1-59333-971-5
Severus of Antioch was the Patriarch of Antioch and a moderate Miaphysite. Sergius the Grammarian is a lesser-known figure, but the content of his letters demonstrates that he was a more extreme Miaphysite. The early 6th century correspondence between the two consists of a set of three letters apiece and an apology by Sergius. Made available in Syriac along with Torrance’s translation, these letters are an important part of the working out of concerns associated with the Council of Chalecedon.
