Several authors have attempted to compile histories of Syriac literature, but no other has matched the scale or depth of the present volume compiled by Mor Ignatius Aphram I Barsoum, former Patriarch of Antioch. It covers both ancient and modern authors, extending all the way to the early twentieth century. This volume presents the Syriac text in vocalized Serto script with section and chapter headings in Estrangelo and includes a table of contents.

    The New Syriac Primer, 2nd Edition

    ISBN: 978-1-59333-325-6
    A truly useful introduction to the Syriac language is a rare find. This practical initiation to the study of this ancient language of the Christian church speaks with clarity and authority. A fruitful integration of scholarly introduction and practical application, this primer is more than a simple grammar or syntactic introduction to the language. Writing in a style designed for beginners, Kiraz avoids technical language and strives for a reader-friendly inductive approach. Readings from actual Syriac texts allow the student to experience the language first hand and the basics of the grammar of the language are ably explained. The book comes with downloadable material so that readers may listen to all reading sentences and text passages in the book.

    Gorgias Encyclopedic Dictionary of the Syriac Heritage

    ISBN: 978-1-59333-714-8
    The Gorgias Encyclopedic Dictionary of the Syriac Heritage (GEDSH) is the first major encyclopedia-type reference work devoted exclusively to Syriac Christianity, both as a field of scholarly inquiry and as the inheritance of Syriac Christians today. In more than 600 entries it covers the Syriac heritage from its beginnings in the first centuries of the Common Era up to the present day. Special attention is given to authors, literary works, scholars, and locations that are associated with the Classical Syriac tradition. Within this tradition, the diversity of Syriac Christianity is highlighted as well as Syriac Christianity’s broader literary and historical contexts, with major entries devoted to Greek and Arabic authors and more general themes, such as Syriac Christianity’s contacts with Judaism and Islam, and with Armenian, Coptic, Ethiopian, and Georgian Christianities.
