Jacob of Serugh’s modern audience may catch a glimpse of 6th century Syriac Orthodox liturgy through the various works he wrote as a bishop. He teaches in a well-acclaimed poetic form. Harrak examines the depiction of the Eucharist in Mimro 95. Details are not extensive for a full worship service, but Harrak divides verses of this commentary in order to relate stages of liturgy where they do apply within the Pre-Anaphoric and Anaphoric parts of Syriac Orthodox worship. Griffith defines each liturgical event along with modifications Jacob of Serugh made, including his point for faithful attendees to stay the length of the Anaphora.

Mary and Joseph, and Other Dialogue Poems on Mary

ISBN: 978-1-59333-839-8
What was Joseph’s reaction when he arrived home to find Mary pregnant? How did Mary manage to persuade him that her child was none other than the Son of God? The Syriac literary tradition had a unique way of answering these sorts of questions raised by the Bible. Dialogue poems (sughyotho) offer lively, thought-provoking, and often delightful re-imaginings of Biblical events. They expand the Biblical stories, giving the familiar characters more dialogue and describing their inner thoughts. The collection provides five dialogue poems featuring Mary, in Syriac original with facing English translation.
