615) All of these are given in Latin translations in Renaudot, except 25 S. GREG. Naz. which is in Assemani Cod. lit. vii. Pp. 185 sqq. 21 DIOSCORUS is also in Assemani ib. pp. 199 sqq. 28 S. James ii is given in English in Neale History: introd. pp. 704 sqq. and 42 SEVERUS in Brett Collection of lit. 10 pp. 102 sqq., both from Renaudot's Latin.

* S. James ii is an abridgement of the great S. James, attributed to Gregory maphrian of the east,' i.c. Barhebraeus : Renaudot misread the date and attributed it to a later Gregory (see Catal, syr, de la bibl. nationale p. 44: Neale History: introd. p. 382 follows Renaudot). John of Bostra is the source 15 of the prayers attributed to him in the Coptic below, pp. 158, 183, 186, 187.


3. Lectionaries

The Lectionaries, of which there appear to be two or more arrangements, have been neither published nor studied completely. Wright Catal. of syr. mss. in Brit. Mus. Lond. 1870, 20 pp. 155-7, tabulates the lections from the Old Testament and the Pauline Epistles for sundays and festivals according to the arrangement of Athanasius of Antioch (987-1003), from Add. 12139 (A. D. 1000): Forshall Catal. codd. mss. orient. Mus. Brit.

syr. Lond. 1838, pp. 32-48, tabulates the Gospels for the year 25 according to at least two arrangements from Rich. 7169, 7171 (c. xii), 7170 (xiii), 7172 (xiv), and Payne Smith Catal. codd. mss. bibl. Bodl. syr. Oxon. 1864, cc. 138-52, the Gospels for the year from Dawk. 50. The Missale syriacum gives the Apostles and Gospels in carshuni and syriac from Maundy Thursday to Low 30 Sunday, and the Gospels in carshuni for the festivals of the year: the Missale chaldaic, Maronit., ed. 1888, gives the Gospels for the year in carshuni. Cp. E. Ranke in Herzog-Plitt RealEncyclopädie xi, Leipz. 1883, pp. 473-6: Scrivener Plain introd. to the textual criticism of the New Testament, ed. 4, Lond. 1894, 35 i. p. 413 sq.

ii. Manuscripts.

There are large numbers of manuscripts of these liturgies in European libraries. There are certainly differences among them, and an examination of them from a liturgical point of 5

view would probably reveal considerable variety of local usage, besides throwing light on the history of the rite: but apparently no such classification has been attempted.

and Cath. Epp., and S. Paul. (It will be noticed that on p. 78 below the second 30 lection is called Praxis in the rubric, though taken from 1 John, since the Acts

and the Cath. Epp. form a single volume.) In mss. of the complete N. T. the books are arranged in the above order, the Gospels being given the place of honour, the rest arranged as read. In the Jacobite Massorah (“Karkaphensian

Syriac?) the books are arranged absolutely according to the order of the 35 lections-Acts and Cath. Epp., S. Paul, Gospels. See Gwilliam in Studia biblica iii, Oxford 1891, pp. 53, 56 sqq.

(1) Of Syriac writers, James of Edessa (640–708), besides the lost work mentioned below, wrote the letter to Thomas the presbyter published with a latin version by Assemani (B. O. ii. pp. 479-486): an english version from the syriac is given below 25 in Appendix F. Assemani's text is extracted from Dionysius bar Salibi Exposition c. 3 mentioned below, and is perhaps not wholly to be depended upon: otherwise a fragment of it is preserved in Brit. Mus. Add. 17215, f. 22 b. James also addressed a tract on the liturgy to George of Serugh, pre- 30 served in Berlin Sachau 218 (cp. Brit. Mus. Add. 14496), and tracts on Azymes against the Armenians (see S. E. Assemani Bibl. Med. Laurent. et Palat. codd. mss. orient. catal. Florent. 1742, no. lxii, p. 107 sq.). Benjamin of Edessa wrote On the offerings : concerning the liturgy and baptism contained in Brit. Mus. Add. 35 14538, f. 38 b. Moses bar Kepha (813-903) wrote a Comment. in liturgiam (B.O. ii. 131) being an exposition of the liturgy and the Lord's Prayer, found in Brit. Mus. Add. 21210, f. 170 a. Of

Dionysius bar Salibi (+1171) Exposition of the liturgy an abstract is given by Assemani B.O. ii. 176-207 (cp. Catal. Vat. syr. ii pp. 553-6): it is contained in Vat. Syr. cii, Paris Anc. fonds 35, 69, 125, Berlin Sachau 156 (in carshuni). J. A. Assemani Cod. ; lit. v. 227 sqq. gives a latin version of a treatise attributed

to John Maro, which seems to be in fact the work of Dionysius bar Salibi interpolated by a Maronite hand.

James of Edessa The book of treasures (B. 0. i. 487, 469), Theodore bar Wahbon (+1193) Tract, de elucidat. missae (ib. ii. 216) and James bar Shakko 10 +1241) Exposition of offices and prayers (ib. 240) are lost.
