Item description for Computer-Generated Concordance to the Syriac New Testament by George Anton Kiraz...

The publication of this Concordance to the Syriac New Testament (Peshitta) is a landmark in Syriac scholarship. It fills a lacuna in the field which has long been felt by Syriac scholars. George Kiraz's new computer-generated Concordance (in vocalized serto script) is based on the standard British and Foreign Bible Society's edition of 1920, and will at once take its place as an essential reference tool for New Testament and for Syriac studies. Notably, it marks a very successful union of Syriac scholarship with the `Electronic Age', specifically the field of Linguistic Computing, since the author has academic qualifications in both computer engineering and Syriac studies. Finally, it witnesses the very welcome alliance of Syrian Orthodox and Western academic scholarship. It is designed to be of service not only to western scholars and students, but also to clergy and laity of the Syriac churches, for whom the Peshitta is their `Authorized Version.' FR From the Foreword: `The publication of George Kiraz's Concordance to the Syriac New Testament may be said to constitute a triple landmark in the history of Syriac studies. In the first place, it most satisfactorily provides what has long been felt by Syriac scholars to be an urgent desideratum. Based on the best text available, this concordance will not only take its place at once as an essential tool for both Biblical and Syriac studies, but it will also open up the way to new developments in Syriac scholarship, not feasible hitherto. Secondly, it marks a very successful marriage of Syriac scholarship with the `Electronic Age', specifically the field of Linguistic Computing. George Kiraz has academic qualifications in both computer engineering and Syriac studies. Thirdly, but by no means the least important, it witnesses the very welcome coming together of Syrian Orthodox and Western academic scholarship: it is a notable feature of this concordance that it has been designed so that it will be of service, not only to scholars, but also to the clergy and laity of all the Syriac Churches -- Syrian Orthodox, Church of the East, Maronite, Chaldean, Syrian Catholic, Syro-Malabar, Syro-Malankara -- for whom the Peshitta constitutes their standard traditional text of the New Testament.' [From the Foreword by Sebastian P. Brock, Oriental Institute, University of Oxford]
