The ceremony of the clothing monks is celebrated ritually much like the ordination of bishops, priests, and deacons. Thus, there is a unique Syriac liturgy for this ceremony of inducting new monks into the monastic life. In the present work, Abbot Francis Acharya presents a translation and study of the liturgy for this clothing ritual. Acharya’s survey of the liturgy takes place in three parts: an examination of the structure and individual parts, an examination of the “four actors” involved in the “drama” of the ritual: God, the Rish Dairo, the community, and the candidate, and an examination of the monastic charism.

Bride of Light

Syriac is particularly rich in poetry on Mary. Not only is some of this of great tenderness and beauty, but much is also highly imaginative. The present selection of translations includes lyric poems (several by St Ephrem), five lively dialogues, and a longer narrative poem on Mary and Joseph.
