Although the Coptic language had been in use for centuries, the tenth-century saw an outburst of literary activity in Coptic and particularly in Coptic poetry. In the present articles, combined here into one work, Hermann Junker provides a detailed discussion of the features of this poetry and includes the original Coptic text and German translation for many of these poems. In his introduction, Junker describes poetic features such as meter, notation, syllabification, verse, and strophe, each supplemented with numerous examples from the poetry to illustrate the point. Junker also includes a discussion of orthographic, translational, and syntactical issues that arise in the publication of such texts. Junker’s thorough discussion would serve well as an introduction to the field of Coptic poetry, and his inclusion of so many examples accompanied by translations makes this work essential for anyone wishing to pursue the topic of Coptic poetry.

The History of John the Son of Zebedee

Introduction, Texts and Translations
ISBN: 978-1-4632-4075-2
Many stories and legends about John the son of Zebedee have survived from antiquity. He was known as one of the twelve disciples of Jesus Christ, as the “Beloved Disciple” and author of the Gospel of John, and even as the recipient of the divine revelation in the Apocalypse. Later traditions, such as the Greek Acts of John, told of how John traveled to Ephesus and converted people to Christianity. John was an important figure to Catholic Christians, to Gnostic Christians, and to Manichaeans. He also found a distinct place among Syriac Christians who preserved their own story about John’s acts in Ephesus. William Wright first introduced the History of John in 1871 using two manuscript witnesses. Since then, more witnesses have been discovered, but little work has been done on this native Syriac apocryphon. The present volume brings together all of the known Syriac witnesses to the History of John with a new translation and includes, for the first time, a critical discussion of the history, provenance, and importance of this text for the study of Syriac Christianity and Christian Apocrypha more generally.
