In the early twentieth-century, P.S. Landersdorfer published a translation of Jacob of Serug’s homily on the fall of the idols accompanied by Landersdorfer’s notes and commentary. In this homily, Jacob includes a list of the idolatrous gods with descriptions of their worshippers. Naturally, as part of his publication, Landersdorfer discusses the gods and religions mentioned in Jacob’s list. However, Bernhard Vandenhoff disagreed with several features of Landersdorfer’s presentation of the text and, more importantly, with several of his conclusions in the commentary on the text. The present article is Vandenhoff’s challenge to Landersdorfer’s conclusions in which Vandenhoff corrects mistakes in the Syriac text, corrects mistakes in the citation of various sources, and corrects what he views to be inaccurate or incomplete descriptions of the gods mentioned in Jacob’s “god-list.”
