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.

The Rabbis’ King-Parables

Midrash From the Third-Century Roman Empire
ISBN: 978-1-61719-159-6
The Rabbis’ King-Parables: Midrash From the Third-Century Roman Empire examines the ancient Rabbis at work using parables about kings; parables that reflect the Rabbis' ideas about the role of the ruler in society, and the relationship of humanity to God. It considers the parables as resistance literature in light of the work of theorists of dominated groups. It is the first systematic attempt to read the parables as sources for Roman history in over 100 years.
