This volume, one of the many to come from the pen of Syriac Catholic Priest Isaac Armalet (1879-1954), contains three epistolary selections. From a manuscript at the Armenian Convent of Bzommar come letters of Joshua bar David (also known as bar Kilo), who is not very well known; he cites numerous 12th-13th century personages. The second portion of the work consists of questions 22-24 from book one of Jacob bar Shakko’s (d. 1241) Dialogue, and the last section contains letters from David de Beth Rabban (fl. second half of 8th cent.). The text is in vocalized Serto. There are general introductions in French and Syriac, and introductions to each section in Syriac; the work concludes with a Syriac-Arabic lexicon.
