This volume is a collection of essays by Colin Imber, professor of Turkish at the University of Manchester. Identifying nationalism – both Turkish and non-Turkish – as having the single greatest influence on the direction of Ottoman studies, Imber attempts to avoid the pitfalls presented by nationalism and other negative trends in the field. As a philologist, Imber uses a distinctively non-social sciences approach to the analysis of texts. Therefore, Imber's articles on the Ottoman navy, Islamic sects and Ottoman civil law are all influenced by his close reading of archival materials.

Cultic Spiritualization

Religious Sacrifice in the Dead Sea Scrolls
ISBN: 978-1-4632-4241-1
Throughout the history of research on the Dead Sea Scrolls, the investigation of religious sacrifice has been neglected. This book examines the views of sacrifice in the non-biblical sectarian Dead Sea Scrolls, through exploration of the historical and ideological development of the movement related to the scrolls (the DSS movement), particularly from the vantagepoint of the movement's later offshoot group known as the Qumran community

Life of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Translated from Syriac to Malayalam by Rev. Fr. Kuriyakos Pallikkapparambil (1926 AD); Translated from Malayalam to English by Sarah Knight; With a Foreword by Sebastian P. Brock
ISBN: 978-1-4632-4355-5
Different parts of the Life of the Blessed Virgin Mary are known from the second century onwards. Translations and adaptations into Syriac and other languages also became available from very early centuries. The compilation in the Syriac language was translated into Malayalam in 1925, but an English translation containing the full text did not exist at all. This gap has been filled now by this work. Sebastian Brock’s Foreword gives important information on the background and authenticity of the different sources that form the basis of the text. This biography is unique in that it brings together some very early accounts of the birth of Mary, the birth of Jesus, the flight into Egypt, and most importantly, the very rare account of the ‘Dormition’ or ‘falling asleep’ of the Blessed Mother.

The Stanzaic Poems of Jacob of Serugh

A Collection of His Madroshe and Sughyotho
ISBN: 978-1-4632-4430-9
Although the verse homilies of Jacob of Serugh are well known to lovers of Syriac literature, his stanzaic poetry, in the form of madroshe and sughyotho, have been largely forgotten. This volume contains twenty-five poems preserved in their complete form and attributed to Jacob in old manuscripts of the sixth/seventh to ninth/tenth century preserved today in the British Library, but largely originating from Deir al-Surian in Egypt.
