Abdisho of Nisibis (d. 1318), also known as Abdisho of Soba or Bar Brikha, was a prominent East Syriac writer during the thirteenth and early fourteenth century. While many of his works did not survive, his The Paradise of Eden, a collection of theological poetry, reached us. It was also known in Arabic as the Maqāmāt. The Paradise was first published by G. Cardahi, Paradisus Eden, in 1889. Later it was issued by Joseph E. Y. de Kelaita in Urmia in 1916, and for a second time in Mosul in 1928, from which the current edition is made. This edition also includes other poems by Bar Hebraeus, Bar Ma`dani, Khamis bar Qardahi, and Mar Narsai.

    What is truly timeless? This book explores two ancient Greek terms for eternity, aiônios and aïdios. It traces these terms from their earliest occurrence in Pre-Socratic philosophy and Plato and through their interaction with Jewish thought and down into the patristic fathers, where they play a crucial role in debates over eternal punishment vs. universal salvation.
