Syriac and Armenian Christians interacted regionally and theologically. This paper investigates whether it is thus a viable proposition to deduce Syriac readings from Armenian biblical translations. Cox concludes on a case-basis because extensive use of a similar source text remains questionable.

Syriac and Armenian Christians interacted regionally and theologically. This paper investigates whether it is thus a viable proposition to deduce Syriac readings from Armenian biblical translations. Koriwyn, an early church historian, emphasized the importance of Greek learning to the 4th century Armenian monk Mashtots’ and his students’ translations. The 5th century copyists checked their work against other sources, but this does not mean that Syriac was among them. There is no critical edition of the Armenian texts to cite revisions; however the comparative work by 20th century scholar Lyonnet identifies Armenian 1 as a Syriac source text. At other points, it could be the case that both the Armenian and Syriac redactor used the same Greek text. Omissions and additions are provided in detail for passages from Genesis.

Hunayn ibn Ishaq and the Kitab Adab al-falasifah

The Pursuit of Wisdom and a Humane Polity in Early Abbasid Baghdad
Series: Analecta Gorgiana 122
ISBN: 978-1-60724-043-3
With a focus on the Kitāb Ādāb al-falāsifah, a book of aphorisms attributed to Ḥunayn ibn Isḥāq, some of the important aspects of the Kitāb are laid out, particularly those dealing with religion and the pursuit of philosophy. Although putatively, translators and scholars such as Ḥunayn ibn Isḥāq, opened the way for philosophical dialogue between Muslims and Christians of Orthodox churches on precepts, often based on Aristotle, which they could agree would lead to wisdom and a humane society.
