De Lacy O'Leary gives a survey of the Syriac Church and its Fathers based on lectures delivered at Bristol University College (probably during the first decade of the 20th century). "The lectures," Leary says, "were of an entirely elementary character, and were intended to serve as a first introduction to the study of Syriac literature, and more especially to enable students to fit that literature and the history of Syria into their proper place in relation to the contemporary history of the Roman Empire and of the Christian Church."

Jacob of Sarug's Homily on Samson

Edited with Notes and Introduction by Mary T. Hansbury; Translated by Dana Miller
ISBN: 978-1-4632-4290-9
Recognized as a saint by both Chalcedonian and non-Chalcedonian Christians alike, Jacob of Sarug (d. 521) produced many narrative poems that have rarely been translated into English. Of his reported 760 metrical homilies, only about half survive. Part of a series of fascicles containing the bilingual Syriac-English editions of Saint Jacob of Sarug’s homilies, this volume contains his homily on Samson. The Syriac text is fully vocalized, and the translation is annotated with a commentary and biblical references. The volume is one of the fascicles of Gorgias Press’s Complete Homilies of Saint Jacob of Sarug, which, when complete, will contain all of Jacob’s surviving sermons.

The Arabs from Alexander the Great until the Islamic Conquests

Orientalist Perceptions and Contemporary Conflicts
ISBN: 978-1-4632-4285-5
This is not a conventional history book. It is rather a study of the sociology of historical writing about a period that, although quite distant in time (330 B.C. to A.D. 670), still influences political discourse about the Arab world, and especially the relationship between the West and the Middle East. This book focuses on the riddle of the disappearance of the Arabs from history before Islam, their sudden appearance behind the banners of the Prophet, and the powerful and traumatic effect this emergence into world history has had on the relationship between the Arabs and the West.

The Many Faces of Iranian Modernity

Sufism and Subjectivity in the Safavid and Qajar Periods
ISBN: 978-1-4632-4237-4
This study into both reformism and mysticism demonstrates both that mystical rhetoric appeared regularly in supposedly anti-mystical modernist writing and that nineteenth- and twentieth-century Sufis actually addressed questions of intellectual and political reform in their writing, despite the common assertion that they were irrationally traditional and politically quietist.

Athanasius' Use of the Gospel of John

A Rhetorical Analysis of Athanasius' Orations against the Arians
ISBN: 978-1-4632-4257-2
The Orations against the Arians are an important landmark in the development of Christological and Trinitarian doctrine. The Orations contain extensive references to the Christian Scriptures and are steeped in rhetoric. The use of Scripture and polemical rhetoric against Athanasius’ theological opponents, the Arians, is intricately interwoven. This monograph offers a rhetorical analysis of the Orations against the Arians to demonstrate the interplay of scriptural reasoning and polemic in Athanasius’ work. In this way, Boezelman’s study provides a fresh perspective on the reception of John’s Gospel in the fourth century.
