Moses bar Kepha (d.903), bishop of Mosul, was a prolific writer, whose contributions in the field of exegesis, theology and liturgy are important sources for the theology of the Syrian Orthodox Church. His commentaries on Baptism and Eucharist, making use of early Syriac and Greek writers, have been known to the English speaking world since the beginning of the last century, and provide an example of how later Syriac writers used and reinterpreted earlier sources. Commentary on the Myron is here translated for the first time into English by Fr. Baby Varghese. This book is an invaluable resource for students of Syriac language and literature, as well as those interested in the liturgy.

Isaac the Syrian's Spiritual Works

Edited and Translated by Mary T. Hansbury
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0593-5
Isaac the Syrian lived the solitary life in the 7th century. He was born in Qatar and subsequently lived in present day Iraq and Iran. After life as a monk, then briefly as a bishop, he withdrew to live the solitary life. These discourses are primarily for solitaries to consolidate them in the love and mercy of God. In this volume, the text of Isaac V has also been included because of the light which it sheds on Apocatastasis, of increasing interest in academic and ecclesial circles.

Reconstruction of a Source of Ibn Isḥāq’s Life of the Prophet and Early Qurʾān Exegesis

A Study of Early Ibn ʿAbbās Traditions
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0659-8
This important work is a source-critical study of a group of traditions (aḥādīth) found in Ibn Isḥāq's Biography (Sīra) of the prophet Muḥammad, widely considered one of the most important early historical texts on the Prophet's life. Through a meticulous isnād-cum-matn analysis, the author reveals that Ibn Isḥāq relied on Muḥammad b. Abī Muḥammad, a hitherto undocumented source of his. Important new light is also shed on problems with Ibn Hishām’s recension of Ibn Isḥāq’s Sīra.
