This collection of articles by Professor Caesar Farah comprises fifty years of research by a leading scholar of Arab-Ottoman relations. Farah’s emphasis is on the reform years of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and the emergence of post-Ottoman Arab states following the First World War. In particular, his articles focus on two geographic regions, Syria and Lebanon, and Yemen. Farah takes up the issues of secular nationalism and Islamism and how these impacted Syria and Lebanon during and after the Ottoman era. In the Yemeni case, he approaches the question of how this corner of the Ottoman Empire dealt with foreign encroachment. While addressing different regions, topics and times, Farah’s overall approach is to place the Arab lands in an Ottoman context and describe how the breakdown of the old order lead to subsequent historical developments.

The Chronicle of Zuqnīn

Parts I and II. From the Creation to the Year 506/7 AD
Edited and Translated by Amir Harrak
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0663-5
The Chronicle of Zuqnin is a universal history beginning with the Creation according to the biblical account and ending with the time of the Chronicler, the years 775-776 AD. The author is most probably Joshua the Stylite, a contemporary of the Caliphs al-Mansur and al-Mahdi, who lived in the monastery of Zuqnin that was located near Amid, the Diar-Bakr of modern Turkey. Parts I and II contain compiled sources some of which survived only in this Chronicle. Sources include the Bible, Cave of Treasures, the Sleepers of Ephesus, Eusebius of Caesarea, Socrates, and the short Chronicle called Pseudo-Joshua the Stylite that deals with Sassanian-Byzantine warfare at the begging of the 6th century. Parts III and IV cover the years 488 and 775 AD. In this volume, Parts I and II, including the author’s dedicatory letter, are now published in an updated edition of the Syriac text and the first English translation.

The Portrayal and Role of Anger in the Res Gestae of Ammianus Marcellinus

ISBN: 978-1-60724-128-7
Ammianus’ treatment of the emotion of anger reveals as much, if not more, about his education, values, beliefs, personality, than it does about the people he writes about. This research contributes to a greater depth of understanding of the role of the key emotion of anger within the individual and collective lives of the characters as portrayed by Ammianus Marcellinus and how he uses them to influence the reader and colour his narrative.

The History of the ‘Slave of Christ’

From Jewish Child to Christian Martyr
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0573-7
The first critical editions and English translations of the two Syriac recensions of a fascinating text which narrates the story of a young Jewish child, Asher. After converting to Christianity and taking the name ʿAḇdā da-Mšiḥā (‘slave of Christ’), he is martyred by his father. In a detailed introduction, Butts and Gross challenge the use of this text by previous scholars as evidence for historical interactions between Jews and Christians, reevaluating its purpose and situating the story in its Late Antique Babylonian context.
