This work, which was originally published as the fourth volume of Pitra’s Analecta Sacra Spicilegio Solesmensi, contains a large number of Syriac and Armenian fragments from Ante-Nicene writings, with a translation into Latin. The texts were collected by l’Abbé Martin at Pitra’s request. The authors represented—some with only a few fragments, others with several pages—are Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite, Clement of Rome, Ignatius of Antioch, Polycarp, Aristides, Justin, Melito of Sardis, Irenaeus, Clement of Alexandria, Hippolytus, Sextus Julius Africanus, Cyprian, Origen, Gregory Thaumaturgus, Dionysius of Alexandria, Peter of Alexandria, Alexander of Alexandria, Methodius, Eustathius of Antioch, Serapion, along with some early conciliar canons. At the end of the text selections is an essay on the Arabic version of Tatian’s Diatessaron, written by A. Ciasca, who was editing that work at the time. At the beginning of the book, an introduction briefly covers the authors and works represented, as well as the manuscripts used. Four indices complete the volume: biblical passages, place names, persons, and subjects. This book will be of great interest to those working in the fields of patristics and Syriac and Armenian literature, especially works translated from Greek.
