In 1896-99 H. Gismondi published an Arabic text, with Latin translation, of the work on the Patriarchs of the Church of the East under the title Maris Amri et Slibae De Patriarchibus Nestorianorum Commentaria (also available from Gorgias Press). In this volume, after providing a thorough general introduction to the work and to Gismondi’s edition, the author goes chronologically through a number of the sections dealing with the earlier Patriarchs. The Arabic and Latin work edited by Gismondi is absolutely essential for for any historical study of the Church of the East, and Westphal’s annotations and explanations on the text add much to that work’s usefulness, especially for readers more comfortable with German than with Arabic or Latin.

Geschichte der spät- und neusyrischen Literatur

ISBN: 978-1-59333-219-8
More than a literary survey, this introduction to the history of late and Neo-Syriac (Neo-Aramaic) covers the works of the past several centuries. Macuch begins with the post-Mongolian period to the end of the 18th century. For the 19th century, Macuch considers the situation of the Assyrians in this period, including the American, Anglican, and Russian Orthodox missionary enterprises in Urmia, noting the writers of the foreign missions. For the twentieth century he includes literature from the period of the wars up to the 1970s. Various East-Syriac and West-Syriac authors of the Chaldean and Church of the East, and Syrian Orthodox and Maronite traditions, as well as the Syrian literature of Malabar in southern India are also considered.
