A comparative chronology of the Patriarchs of the Church of the East based on twenty-two sources, five of which are previously unpublished. Benjamin reveals a great number of differences between the sources and concludes that the present Patriarch of the Assyrian Church of the East was named Dinkha IV instead of Dinkha III. Benjamin also highlights inconsistencies, omissions, errors and dates of succession of some patriarchs that appear to have been based on assumption. The current volume, with carefully arranged tabular lists and comments, is essential to further research on the chronology of the Patriarchs of the Church of the East. The book is written in three languages: English, Syriac and Arabic.

Daniel Benjamin is a poet and writer in Syriac. He has published many Syriac liturgy books, primarily on the traditions of the Church of the East. He is the Assyrian Language Editor of Journal of Assyrian Academic Studies. Between 1956 and 1967, he was the manager of Nineveh Printing Press in Kirkuk, Iraq.

Isaac the Syrian's Spiritual Works

Edited and Translated by Mary T. Hansbury
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0593-5
Isaac the Syrian lived the solitary life in the 7th century. He was born in Qatar and subsequently lived in present day Iraq and Iran. After life as a monk, then briefly as a bishop, he withdrew to live the solitary life. These discourses are primarily for solitaries to consolidate them in the love and mercy of God. In this volume, the text of Isaac V has also been included because of the light which it sheds on Apocatastasis, of increasing interest in academic and ecclesial circles.

The Works of Cyrillona

Edited and Translated by Carl Griffin
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0606-2
Cyrillona (fl. 396) has been ranked among the foremost early Syriac poets since his work was rediscovered by scholars in the mid-19th century. His Holy Week discourses on the Last Supper, the Washing of the Feet, and the Institution of the Eucharist have become particularly well-known to western readers through quotations by such diverse authors as Hugo Rahner and Photina Rech. This volume presents the first modern critical edition of Cyrillona’s Syriac works together with the first complete English translation.
