Augustinus Scebabi, a Maronite monk, here presents in vocalized Serto script a number of poems penned by the famous and prolific Barhebraeus (1225-1286). After a brief introduction in Syriac, Scebabi gives the text of the poems, a full list of which may be found at the end of the book. The poems deal with various themes, including divine love, perfection, wisdom and philosophy, etc., and the book also includes Barhebraeus’ eulogy on John bar Ma‘dani, a contemporary Syriac prelate and poet. At the end of the work, a Syriac-Arabic-Latin glossary of difficult words found in the poems is supplied. Finally, there are also a few poems at the end written in praise of Scebabi himself. This collection of poetry from a shining light of the Syriac Renaissance, and indeed of all of Syriac literature, will be worthwhile reading both in terms of its content and its language.

The Stories They Tell

Halakhic Anecdotes in the Babylonian Talmud
ISBN: 978-1-4632-4456-9
In this engaging book of commentary on the Talmud, the author upends the long-held theory of the immutability of halakhah, Jewish law. In her detailed analysis of over 80 short halakhic anecdotes in the Babylonian Talmud, the author shows that the Talmud itself promotes halakhic change. She leads the reader through one sugya (discussion unit) after another, accumulating evidence for her rather radical thesis. Along the way, she teases out details of what life was like 1500 years ago for women in their relationships with men and for students in their relationships with mentors. An eye-opening read by one of today’s leading Talmud scholars.

The Scholastic Culture of the Babylonian Talmud

ISBN: 978-1-4632-0657-4
The Scholastic Culture of the Babylonian Talmud studies how and in what cultural context the Talmud began to take shape in the scholastic centers of rabbinic Babylonia. Bickart tracks the use of the term tistayem ("let it be promulgated") and its analogs, in contexts ranging from Amoraic disciple circles to Geonic texts, and in comparison with literatures of Syriac-speaking Christians. The study demonstrates increasing academization during the talmudic period, and supports a gradual model of the Talmud's redaction.
