Reviews - What do customers think about The Old Syriac Inscriptions of Edessa and Osrhoene: Texts, Translations, and Commentary (Handbook of Oriental Studies/Handbuch Der Orientalistik)?

Excellent Edition of Old Syriac Inscriptions  Mar 27, 2001
This book represents the definitive edition of all the existing published Syriac inscriptions that are neither Jewish nor Christian. It replaces the small book of texts of a set of Old Syriac inscriptions that H. J. Drijvers provided in 1972 or so, with a more thorough presentation of every published inscription, as well some identification of those inscriptions that are in the process of being published. Plates or sketches, and sometimes both, are included for every inscription. For the text of each inscription, the editors offer transliteration, translation, and line notes. There is a fascinating series of inscriptions taken from mosaic floors of the third century, which represent families in their "house of eternity," or tomb. Having worked with all of these materials as presented, I am an unqualified admirer of the edition. It is not always completely neutral in evaluating previous editions; generally, however, the editors recognize that responsible people can disagree on the sense of an inscription. This is a very useful academic tool for understanding the third century milieu out of which Classical Syriac emerged. petersig@ccat.sas.upenn.edu
