Presentation

The volume 2 of RISyr brings together in a corpus for the first time all Syriac and Garshuni (Arabic in Syriac script) inscriptions of Iraq. Many are dated (709-2000). The inscriptions pertain to the various Syriac communities, in all their ecclesiastical, but also economic and social dimensions. All are important documents for the history of this so often ravaged country.

The corpus is almost complete : it includes all published and now lost inscriptions, and all extant inscriptions, many of which are not even published. The indexes are a mine of information for linguists, archaeologists, and historians of late Antiquity, medieval, and modern cultures. The methodological translation and commentaries highlight the merits of the inscriptions and make them accessible to non-specialists. The volume of the plates published separately allows for easy consultation and comparable reading of the inscriptions, providing a global view of the Syriac epigraphy of Iraq.

The Author

Amir Harrak is professor of Aramaic and Syriac at the University of Toronto. He is the founder and current president of the Canadian Society of Syriac Studies and the General Editor of its annual Journal.
