This popular presentation of the life of St. Ephrem in sixteen chapters in Arabic was originally printed at the Dominican Press in Mosul. It begins with the state of the Church at Ephrem’s appearance, his birth and an associated miracle, his early life and mistreatment by his parents, and then moves to his entrance into the Church and Christian instruction, his time in Nisibis and subsequent removal to Edessa and call to monasticism, his teaching and disciples, and finally the loss felt at his death, his faith, his devotion to Scripture, some of his writings and his elegant writing style. This work will be of interest to scholars of Eastern Christianity as well as to general Arabic-speaking readers.

    Isaac the Syrian's Spiritual Works

    Edited and Translated by Mary T. Hansbury
    ISBN: 978-1-4632-0593-5
    Isaac the Syrian lived the solitary life in the 7th century. He was born in Qatar and subsequently lived in present day Iraq and Iran. After life as a monk, then briefly as a bishop, he withdrew to live the solitary life. These discourses are primarily for solitaries to consolidate them in the love and mercy of God. In this volume, the text of Isaac V has also been included because of the light which it sheds on Apocatastasis, of increasing interest in academic and ecclesial circles.
