When Imperial Russia began to discover evidence of Syriac Chrisitianity in Russian Turkestan, she shared some of the finds with her French allies. This survey of the early history of the Church of the East by a distinguished historian of Christianity was part of the volume issued to commemorate the exhibition of thirty inscriptions at the Musée Guimet. Now difficult to obtain, it describes the excavations, tells the history of the Church, its origins in Persia, its expansion under the Arab Conquest, and its travails under the Turks, the Mongols, and the Chinese. There are two appendices, one containing rubbings and transcriptions of the thirty exhibits, more detailed than Chwolsohn's publication in Saint Petersburg, (also available from Gorgias Press), the other a detailed description of the Nestorian Stele of Siganfu.

Narratology and the Pentateuch Targums

In this innovative book Simon Lasair explores some of the potentials of applying narratology to the Pentateuch Targums. Lasair argues that when the targums present coherent narratives, they largely carry the major structures of the Pentateuch over into an Aramaic context. This book calls for a wide ranging rethink of the methodologies used to study targumic literature, as well as how to place the targums within their original historical contexts.

Astronomie et cosmographie syriaques

Cette série s’ouvre par la réédition d’articles de François Nau, publiés entre 1896 et 1910 dans la Revue de l’Orient chrétien et le Journal asiatique. L’œuvre de François Nau au service de la culture syriaque est immense et toujours consultée, tant il s’est consacré à la publication de textes qui n’ont souvent pas encore été repris ailleurs. Il a donc semblé utile de les republier dans une série de volumes thématiques, qui couvriront tous les champs de la culture syriaque.
