The main goal of this study is to present data from Syriac and Christian Arabic writers, and some other sources, dealing with missionary activity and the expansion of Christianity into east Asia. Mingana gives a great variety of texts in English translation explained and compared with one another. Of course, the famous Chinese-Syriac monument of Singan-Fu is discussed, but he also considers the evidence of gravestones, liturgical manuscripts, and Manichean texts, and a relevant letter of Philoxenus is also edited and translated. This important study collecting so much evidence will be a significant resource for those interested in the distant move of Christianity eastward.

The Akītu Festival (paperback)

Religious Continuity and Royal Legitimation in Mesopotamia
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0265-1
The akītu festival is one of the oldest recorded religious festivals in the world, celebrated for several millennia throughout ancient Mesopotamia. Yet, the akītu was more than just a religious ceremony; it acted as a political device to ensure the supremacy of the king, the national god, and his capital city. Using tools of social anthropology and ritual analysis, this book presents a detailed reconstruction of the festival events and its attendant rituals to demonstrate how the festival became a propagandistic tool wielded by the monarchy and ruling classes. The akītu festival demonstrates the effectiveness of religion as a political tool.

The Sub-Loco Notes in the Former Prophets of Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia

ISBN: 978-1-4632-0531-7
In BHS’s Masoretic apparatus, certain Masorah parva notes are marked “sub loco” in order to refer the reader to the corresponding commentary that was to be found in the third volume of Massorah Gedolah. Due to Weil’s passing, however, this commentary was never realized. This volume builds on Mynatt’s 1994 analysis and classification of the Pentateuch’s 297 sub loco notes by incorporating the Aleppo and Cairo Codices. Dost evaluates all 451 sub loco notes in the corpus of the Former Prophets, and evaluates Weil’s contribution by comparing Weil's revision of the Leningrad Codex’s Masorah against the Masorah of the Aleppo Codex.
