Lists containing the identity and activities of the seventy (or seventy-two) disciples sent out by Jesus circulated in various forms throughout early Christianity. As these lists were copied, they were naturally compared and corrected against other known versions of the list. The writings of Abu-al-Barakat contain two versions of this list. Anton Baumstark presents here the text of one of Barakat’s lists. Barakat claims that this version was translated from a Greek original. Baumstark argues that, while this claim appears to be true, the discrepancies that arise in the comparison of this version of the text with the Greek version suggest that this list was corrected by a Coptic version. In his introduction to the text, Baumstark discusses the sources that the Coptic corrector possibly could have used in the process of editing the text. The Arabic text of Barakat’s list is accompanied by a Latin text with an apparatus containing variant readings from the sources that Baumstark discusses in his introduction.

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.
