Two works of the sixth-century Church of the East author Thomas of Edessa survive: On the Nativity, and On the Epiphany. This volume contains the Syriac text of the former along with a Latin translation and a brief introduction in English; the Latin translation also contains biblical references. Thomas of Edessa is associated with the School of Nisibis, and this text will help shed light on Church of the East thought during this period. The book was originally written as a dissertation at the Catholic University of America, where the author studied with Hyvernat.
