The Old Testament in Syriac, according to the Peshiṭta version: Isaiah ; [prepared by S.P. Brock]
Sebastian P. Brock
BRILL, 1987 - Religion - 121 pages
The Peshi?ta version of the Syriac translation of the Old Testament was made during the first centuries of the Christian era and has been used ever since in the non-Western churches of Semitic signature. Much like the Greek translations of the Old Testament, this document is an important source for our knowledge of the text of the Old Testament. In contrast to the manuscript of most Hebrew traditions, which date from the beginning of the Middle Ages, the extant manuscripts date from the fifth century. The present edition, prepared at the Peshi?ta Institute in Leiden on behalf of the International Organisation for the Study of the Old Testament, is the first critical one of this text. The edition of each individual book is preceded by a separate introduction.
