Perspectives on Philosophy and Religious Thought (formerly Gorgias Studies in Philosophy and Theology) provides a forum for original scholarship on theological and philosophical issues, promoting dialogue between the wide-ranging fields of religious and logical thought. This series includes studies on both the interaction between different theistic or philosophical traditions and their development in historical perspective.
The Armenian Church Synaxarion is a collection of saints’ lives according to the day of the year on which each saint is celebrated. Part of the great and varied Armenian liturgical tradition from the turn of the first millennium, the first Armenian Church Synaxarion represented the logical culmination of a long and steady development of what is today called the cult of the saints. This is the first Armenian-English edition, a twelve-volume series—one for each month of the year—and is ideal for personal devotional use or as a valuable resource for anyone interested in saints.
Gorgias Islamic Studies spans a wide range of subject areas, seeking to understand Islam as a complete cultural and religious unity.

ASLIP was founded in 1986, under the leadership of Harold C. Fleming, to encourage international, interdisciplinary information sharing, discussion, and debate among human geneticists, paleoanthropologists, archaeologists, and historical linguists on questions relating to language origins and ancestral human spoken languages. One objective is to develop a taxonomy of human languages (a linguistic family tree) and reconstructions of major events in the evolution of modern humans. Alongside this, the complex evolution of physical humans—population movements, shared mutations, and archaeological discoveries—may be related to the linguistic family tree. The ultimate goal of ASLIP is to seek the best explanations as they pertain to the emerging synthesis about modern human origins. ASLIP is not committed to any single proposition. The ASLIP book series, Language in Prehistory, is dedicated to the publication of books that further these stated goals.
The Antioch Bible Series provides both the text of the Syriac Bible (called the “Peshitta”) and an up-to-date English translation. The Syriac is fully vocalized and pointed so that readers at any level will be able to work with it – from beginners who are just starting to learn the language to experienced scholars who want to work with a vocalized text. On each facing page, an English translation has been prepared by a member of an international (and inter-faith) team of scholars, so that both the Syriac and English can be studied together.
This series publishes scholarly research focusing on the societies, material cultures, technologies, religions, and languages that emerged from Mesopotamia, Egypt, and the Levant. Gorgias Studies in the Ancient Near East features studies with both humanistic and social scientific approaches.

Gorgias Chronicles of Late Antiquity aims to publish Syriac and Christian Arabic chronicles dating between the 6th and the 14th centuries in their original languages and with facing English translations. The translations will make these unique chronographic sources accessible to as wide an audience as possible, offering the specialist the opportunity to read them in the original languages and to compare them with the translations.
The Opera Minora series of the century-old Harvard Oriental Series aims at the swift publication of important materials that cannot be included in the mainly text-oriented Harvard Oriental Series. Therefore, Opera Minora include the publication of seminal conferences, archeological reports, important dissertations, currently controversially discussed topics in Indology and South Asian studies, biographies of outstanding scholars, supporting materials such as linguistic or historical atlases or indexes of important works.
The past 9 volumes, not always of 'minor' size, contain examples of most of these topics, for example an archeological report on recent excavations in South Asia and Iran related to the Indus civilization 2600-1900 BCE), a large volume with papers of the 5th Vedic workshop, a language atlas of South Asia with detailed statistical data, two volumes with work in progress on the second oldest Indian text (Paippalāda Atharvaveda), or a discussion of the ever-controversial topic (in India) of "Aryans versus non-Aryans".
This series contains volumes dealing with the study of the Hebrew Bible, ancient Israelite society and related ancient societies, Biblical Hebrew and cognate languages, the reception of biblical texts through the centuries, and the history of the discipline.

The Sebastianyotho series was launched in 2018 on the occasion of Sebastian P. Brock's 80th birthday to celebrate his prolific contributions to the field of Syriac studies for over half a century. Each volume in the series collects his works on a specific theme and includes new material. Covering a wide range of topics, the series becomes an indispensable encyclopedia on Syriac Christianity. The title of the series is formed from Sebastian, as he is called by his colleagues and students—a testimony to his humility, and the Syriac suffix -yotho creating a plural abstract noun that denotes the idea and quality of Brock and his work.
In this series Gorgias publishes monographs and edited volumes on the history, theology, redaction and literary criticism of the biblical texts. Gorgias particularly welcomes proposals from younger scholars whose dissertations have made an important contribution to the field of Biblical Studies.
Munaqashat: Gorgias Studies in the Modern Middle East takes an interdisciplinary approach towards understanding the formation of the Arab world, Turkey, and Iran from the late Ottoman period to the present day. Munaqashat, the Arabic word for "conversations," assesses these social, political, and historical factors, as well as the region's dynamic global interactions, through a critical lens. This series aims to appeal to specialists as well as general audiences seeking to diversify their understanding of the modern Middle East.
