Gewargis Warda (13th cent.), an important Church of the East poet about whom little is known, was the author of a collection of hymns known as the Book of the Rose (warda in Syriac). In this volume, Hilgenfeld presents a critical edition of nine of his poems, mostly on contemporary events: four poems on famine and other calamities, one on the Mongolian attack on Karmalish 1235/6, the deacon Abraham, John the Baptist, Tahmazgerd and the martyrs of Karkha d-Beth Slokh, and Jacob of Beth Lapat. The poems are also translated into German with annotations and an introduction. Readers interested in later Syriac poetry or in 13th century history of this region will welcome the reprinting of this book.

Myth, Text, and History at Sparta

Edited by Thomas Figueira
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0595-9
Three studies that offer close readings concerning the interaction of the source material on Spartan history with the unfolding of actual historical events. These contributions take the position that not only political, but also social, policies at Sparta, as well as the historical actors giving them shape, were intensely─and to an unusual degree─influenced by myth, tradition, and popular memory about the Laconian past.
