In this multi-faceted study of Greek texts related to Ephrem, part of the series Études Critiques de Littérature et de Philologie Byzantines, Emereau envisions these works as a genuine and worthy part of Byzantine literature, and his study is especially directed toward Byzantinists. There are sections covering the sources for the study of Ephrem's life, a survey of Ephrem's works (touching on texts in Syriac, Greek, Arabic, Armenian, and Coptic), a specific look at the Greek translations, the poetry of the Greek Ephrem, his influence on homily writers of the 5th cent., Byzantine hymnography and the Syrian origin of the Kontakion (there is also an appendix on Romanos and more detail on Byzantine hymnography), philological contributions stemming from the study of these Greek texts, and, finally, an investigation of rhetoric in the Greek Ephrem. Readers who study Byzantine literature and the broader Ephrem tradition will find this important study of great interest.

Daughter Zion's Trauma

A Trauma Informed Reading of Lamentations
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0744-1
Daughter Zion's Trauma offers a new critical reading of the Book of Lamentations through the lens of trauma studies. Through structural analysis and use of the concept of non-referential history as a heuristic lens, Yansen yields fresh insights into the book’s form, language, and larger "historical" significance. Utilizing insights from study of the rhetorical dimensions of the trauma process in cultural trauma, this study asserts that Lamentations strategically adapts certain religious traditions to ensure the survival of those whose voices it echoes.

Theory and Practice in Islamic Constitutionalism

From Classical Fiqh to Modern Systems
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0693-2
This groundbreaking study investigates theories of Islamic constitutionalism as expressed and implemented throughout the history of Islam. To achieve this, it first traces the roots of caliphate embedded within the seminal legal and political works of classical and modern Muslim thinkers. In its concluding chapters, the study maps out and discusses the subsequent transition of Islamic and Muslim governance into twentieth-century approaches to constitutionalism. Longo's resourceful and meticulous approach sheds new light on constitutionalism within the contemporary Muslim world and how it continues to be informed by, or departs from classical theories of Islamic and Muslim governance.

Fate, Freedom, and Happiness

Clement and Alexander on the Dignity of Human Responsibility
ISBN: 978-1-4632-3928-2
In what particular manner human beings are free moral agents and to what extent they can reasonably expect to attain a good life are two intertwined questions that rose to prominence in antiquity and have remained so to the present day. This book analyzes and compares the approaches of two significant authors from different schools at the turn of the third century CE, Alexander of Aphrodisias and Clement of Alexandria. These contemporaries utilize their respective Peripatetic and Christian commitments in their employment of the shared Greek classics toward these shared ethical questions.
