From the famous very early British Museum (now Library) manuscript, Add. 12150, dated to 411, along with another later manuscript, Lagarde has produced the text of the Syriac version of the Pseudo-Clementine Recognitions and some of the Homilies (10-14). This legendary or romantic collection of texts purportedly stemming from Clement of Rome has excited scholarly interest for the literary relationship between the documents, as well as for its religious discussions, including a connection to the famous Bardaisan. The Recognitions were also translated into Latin by Rufinus at about the same time the Syriac version was made, and Lagarde provides a concordance for the two translations. This volume will be of great interest to readers who study Greek-Syriac translations and, of course, those interested in the Clementine literature and early Christian literature generally.
