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.
