Moshe Bar Kepha’s Cause of the Celebration of the Nativity

A Genre for Exegesis, Ecumenism, and Apology
Edited and Translated with an Introduction by Abdul-Massih Saadi
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0733-5
This book is a part of series of Causes of Celebrations written by Moshe Bar Kepha (813-903). These Causes are unique in that they demonstrate a new genre of the Syriac literature initiated by the East Syriac authors at the beginning of the sixth century. Moreover, these Causes reveal the appreciation and dependency of Moshe Bar Kepha on the East Syriac sources despite the ecclesiastical doctrinal separation between the East Syriac and West Syriac churches.
