|Conversos in the Responsa of Sephardic Halakhic Authorities in the 15th Century by Dora Zsom|
This volume presents a systematic and detailed elaboration of the halakhic (legal) decisions written by five of the most important authors who wrote responsa concerning conversos between the years 1391 and 1492. The expulsion was an event that radically changed the perspectives of the Iberian conversos. The halakhic authorities were confronted with an absolutely new situation, in which they had to reformulate their position towards the conversos. This volume presents all the responsa written in connection with conversos by Isaac b. Sheshet Perfet, Simeon b. Ṣemaḥ Duran and his descendants: Solomon b. Simeon Duran, Ṣemaḥ b. Solomon Duran and Simeon b. Solomon Duran.
|The Crusades: Conflict Between Christendom and Islam by Matti Moosa|
This book sheds light on the first three Crusades (1097-1191) by introducing material from several medieval Syriac and Arabic sources and reconciling their accounts with those provided by Western sources. It presents the Crusades as an extension of the conflict between Christianity and Islam, which began with the Arabs’ first incursions into Christian territory in the seventh century and continued with their conquest of the Iberian peninsula.
|Cyriacus of Tagrit and his Book on Divine Providence by Mikael Oez|
Cyriacus of Tagrit was patriarch of the Syrian Orthodox Church of Antioch between 793 and 817 under the Abbasid Caliphate, a turbulent and divided period in the history of his church in the Middle East. This work, for the first time, collects together and provides a critical edition and annotated English translation of all of his extant and accessible writings. The book focuses on his major composition, The Book on Divine Providence.
|The Deserted Medieval Village of Cottam and the Settlement Matrix Model by William Fitts|
This volume introduces the concept of the Settlement Matrix, a heuristic model that connects the analysis of the symbolic and practical aspects of human culture by placing them both within the same spaces defined by a settlement and its support area. The settlement matrix model examines each venue of daily life from the house to the settlement to the field system as integral parts of a single cultural construct, the settlement matrix. By defining discrete spaces and a way to connect them, the settlement matrix model provides a way to combine technologies like GIS with current archaeological theory.

|Title:||Poems of Gregory Barhebraeus|
|Series:||Syriac Studies Library 81|
|Edited with an Introduction by Augustinus Scebabi|
|From the 1877 edition|
|Format:||Hardback, Black, 6 x 9 in|
Augustinus Scebabi, a Maronite monk, here presents in vocalized Serto script a number of poems penned by the famous and prolific Barhebraeus (1225-1286). After a brief introduction in Syriac, Scebabi gives the text of the poems, a full list of which may be found at the end of the book. The poems deal with various themes, including divine love, perfection, wisdom and philosophy, etc., and the book also includes Barhebraeus’ eulogy on John bar Ma‘dani, a contemporary Syriac prelate and poet. At the end of the work, a Syriac-Arabic-Latin glossary of difficult words found in the poems is supplied. Finally, there are also a few poems at the end written in praise of Scebabi himself. This collection of poetry from a shining light of the Syriac Renaissance, and indeed of all of Syriac literature, will be worthwhile reading both in terms of its content and its language.Table of Contents
