Ancient Georgian Versions of the Old Testament is a description and analysis of a unique Old Testament codex in Georgian containing the first eight books of the Bible, the Prophets, and marginal commentary on both. The first part of the text discussed is an unknown translation from Greek to Georgian, which is remarkably literal in using participial phrases and double letters. The second half of the codex resembles the Georgian Bible that was printed in Moscow in 1743. This valuable study casts new light on the history of Georgian, the evolution of the Georgian Old Testament, and the relation of the Moscow text to the Armenian Bible.

A Comprehensive Grammar to Hammurabi’s Stele

ISBN: 978-1-4632-0284-2
This complete grammar of Code of Hammurabi is formally arranged and can be the basis for learning the rest of Akkadian grammar. Students of Biblical Hebrew or Arabic will find it a most convenient introduction to this sister language. The cuneiform text has been set out in columns opposite a phonetic transcription, thus enabling the comprehensive set of citations illustrating various points of Akkadian grammar to be easily checked within their wider linguistic context. This book, when used in conjunction with the author’s previous book “Hammurabi’s Laws”, makes it possible for a student to learn to read and understand the whole text of Hammurabi’s Stele.
