This volume is the sequel to Chase’s book The Old Syriac Element in the text of Codex Bezae (1893, also reprinted by Gorgias Press). Codex Bezae is the primary manuscript of the so-called "Western" text of the Greek New Testament. Chase suggests in this book that the term "Western" text should be replaced by "Syro-Latin" text. While his earlier book is confined to passages drawn from the Book of Acts, the present volume relies on passages from the Gospels. One of Chase's conclusions is that "the Bezan scribe was a Syriac-speaking Christian who, in transcribing a Greek copy of the Gospels, in many passages assimilated the Greek text to a Syriac idiom with which he was familiar."

Frederic Henry Chase (1853-1925) was Lecturer in Theology at Pembroke, a Fellow of King’s College London, and Norissian Professor of Divinity at Queen’s College Cambridge. He was also consecrated as the Bishop of Ely.

Isaac the Syrian's Spiritual Works

Edited and Translated by Mary T. Hansbury
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0593-5
Isaac the Syrian lived the solitary life in the 7th century. He was born in Qatar and subsequently lived in present day Iraq and Iran. After life as a monk, then briefly as a bishop, he withdrew to live the solitary life. These discourses are primarily for solitaries to consolidate them in the love and mercy of God. In this volume, the text of Isaac V has also been included because of the light which it sheds on Apocatastasis, of increasing interest in academic and ecclesial circles.
