The Maronite Library of Aleppo is one of the most important private collections of manuscripts in the Syrian Arab Republic. This ancient library, belonging formerly to Mar Elias Cathedral, has been growing over the centuries thanks to the purchase of new manuscripts from Lebanon, Syria and the Gazira. The work of local copyists and the posthumous donations of books from many distinguished figures of this community such as Germanus Farhat, Bulus Arutin, Germanus Hawa, among others, have also increased the holdings.

The collection contains more than 1640 manuscripts in Arabic, Syriac and Arabic Karshuni on the Bible, theology, history, grammar, science, liturgy, poetry and literature. This catalogue offers the first detailed record and description of the 134 Syriac manuscripts belonging to the Maronite Library of Aleppo. The material is helpfully categorized according to the manuscript's particular area of concern: Bible, grammars and dictionaries, miscellany and liturgy. The book also includes 48 images and full indices of titles, personal names, subjects and places.

The Two Syriac Versions of the Prayer of Manasseh

ISBN: 978-1-4632-0050-3
The authors present a detailed philological and linguistic comparison of two versions of The Prayer of Manasseh. Combing state-of-the-art computational tools together with traditional philology, the texts are compared at all linguistic levels, from their vocabulary up to their discursive structure, with a special emphasis on their morphology and syntax. The results are revealing not only for the question of the relationship between the two versions, but they also illuminate various debates pertaining to Syriac syntax.

The Platonic Theology of Ioane Petritsi

ISBN: 978-1-59333-395-9
Gigineishvili’s study is a comprehensive exposition of the philosophical system of twelfth-century Georgian Christian Neoplatonist philosopher Ioane Petritsi. Petritsi translated and commented on Proclus’ "Elements of Theology." The translation needed the creation of a philosophic language—a medium for transmitting the extravagant philosophic ideas into Georgian—which Petritsi effectively achieved. Petritsi both explains intricacies of Proclus’ thought and tries to prove the basic affinity between the Platonic and the biblical traditions. Gigineishvili exposes the entire system of Petritsi’s thought on a background of ideas of Proclus, other Neoplatonists, and of the Church Fathers.

Syriac and Antiochian Exegesis and Biblical Theology for the 3rd Millennium

ISBN: 978-1-59333-487-1
The observation that scholarly work on the Bible is of little use to theologians is the starting premise for this volume. As a possible solution to this impasse, the contributors explore the potential insights provided by a distinct tradition of biblical interpretation that has its roots in both the patristic School of Antioch and in the Syriac Fathers, such as Ephrem and Jacob of Sarug, and which has survived and developed in the Churches of the Antiochene Patrimony, such as the Maronite and Syriac.

Divine Contingency

Theologies of Divine Embodiment in Maximos the Confessor and Tsong kha pa
ISBN: 978-1-59333-970-8
This work explores the points of contact, as well as the differences between the distinct notions of divine embodiment developed by Maximos the Confessor (580-662), one of the greatest Greek Fathers, and Tsong kha pa (1357-1419), arguably the most important thinker in the history of Tibetan Buddhism. Both authors developed a spiritual theology where natural contemplation and the practice of the virtues are invested with a transformative value and are construed as a response to a cosmic intelligence, which sustains the universe, but also becomes manifest in history.
