Reviews - What do customers think about Ancient Syriac Documents: Relative to the Earliest Establishment of Christianity in Edessa and the Neighboring Countries?

Good book, poor printing  Nov 20, 2007
This book contains important documents that convey some of the most important foundational narratives of the Syriac Church, particularly the Doctrine of Addai (spelled "Addaeus" in the Latinate transliteration used in this volume). The book contains the Syriac of all but two of the documents and translations in flowery 19th century English. It also contains one document in Latin and another in French.

The book consists of an introduction and list of corrections (pp. i-xiv), translations (pp. 1-139), notes (pp. 140-196), and the Syriac texts (alaph - qoph.yudh.beth, i.e. 1-112, using the traditional system with letters of the Syriac alphabet). The Syriac section is paginated right-to-left, like any normal Semitic text. Thus, p. 112 in Syriac faces p. 196 in English.

The copy photographed for this Wipf & Stock printing has many handwritten marks on it, and every page has lots of stray dots and lines. Some of the Roman text is very light, though everything seems to be at least legible. The poor printing quality is what moved me to give this a four-star rating rather than a five-star one.

The original of this book has no table of contents, and W&S hasn't added one. The titles of the texts included are:
Chapter 13 of Eusebius, History of the Church, Concerning the King of Edessa
The Doctrine of Addaeus, the Apostle
The Doctrine of the Apostles
Doctrine of Simon Cephas, in the City of Rome
The Acts of Sharbil
Martyrdom of Barsamya, the Bishop of the Blessed City of Edessa
Matyrdom of Habib the Deacon
Oration on Habib the Martyr, composed by Mar Jacob
An Oration on Shamuna and Guria, composed by Mar Jacob
Canticle of Mar Jacob, upon Edessa
Extracts from Various Books, Relating to Abgar the King and Addaeus the apostle
Martyrium Sanctorum Confessorum Samonae, Guriae et Abibi, ex Simeone Metaphraste
Moise de Khorene: Histoire d'Armenie
