From the chronicle of Dionysius Tell-Mahre to that of Michael the Great, there are several important historical chronicles in the Syriac tradition. The present work includes the text of one of these important historical chronicles: an account of both secular and ecclesiastical history generally known in the Western world as the "Chronicle of 1234." This work is anonymous, though it was likely produced in Edessa. This historical work is important in its own right as a first hand account of the twelfth and thirteenth century crusades and because it relies on other historical works which have not survived. The text was first edited and published by J.B. Chabot in the early twentieth century. The present volume presents the Syriac text in a vocalized Serto script, and it includes a table of contents and an introduction by Julius Yeshu Çiçek.

ISBN: 1-59333-190-8
John Healey’s, Leshono Suryoyo, is an introductory grammar for those wishing to learn to read Classical Syriac, one of the major literary dialects of Aramaic and the language of one of the main groups of Middle Eastern churches, including the Syrian Orthodox Church, the Church of the East, and the Chaldaean Church. From the first centuries of the Christian era, Syriac was used by the main theological and historical writers of this tradition (Ephrem the Syrian, Philoxenus of Mabbogh, Thomas of Marga, and Barhebraeus). It also continues to be used in worship.

This is a basic introduction to the various Syriac translations of the Bible and the ways in which they were used in the Syriac tradition.

A reception history of the Syriac Bible covers the ways in which it has been interpreted, the commentary tradition, its use in preaching, in liturgy, and in spirituality. An appendix offers some comparative samples (in translation) to illustrate some of the differences between the different Syriac translations.

In addition to discussing New Testament variants Lewis also addresses the issue of how science and biblical teaching might coexist.
