The School of Nisibis was an east Syriac center for study, a successor to the School of the Persians at Edessa. This brief but important work (also known by its French title, École de Nisibe. Son origine, ses règlements et ses hommes célèbres) by the Chaldean Archbishop Addai Scher (1867-1915), who elsewhere edited the so-called Cause of the Foundation of the Schools (one of the chief documents for knowledge of the School of Nisibis), provides readers with a concise overview of the School, including the famous teachers and students associated with it (e.g. Narsai, Abraham de Beit Rabban, Ishoyahb I, Henana, Babai) and its functional arrangement, that is, dealing with the titles and roles of its leaders and with the School’s statutes. Throughout the work, Scher indicates important Syriac terminology. An index of proper names concludes the volume. This book is a significant study of a formative period of the Church of the East.

A Short Introduction to the Tiberian Masoretic Bible and its Reading Tradition

ISBN: 978-1-4632-0246-0
This book is intended to provide a quick introductory overview of the Tiberian Masoretic tradition of the Hebrew Bible and its background. It was this tradition that produced the great Masoretic codices of the Middle Ages, which form the basis of modern printed editions of the Hebrew Bible. Particular prominence is given to the multi-layered nature of the Masoretic tradition. The volume contains a section describing the Tiberian reading tradition, which is essential for a correct understanding of the vocalization system.
