Apocrypha Arabica

Full Product Description

The twin sisters Agnes Lewis (1843-1926) and Margaret Gibson (1843-1920) were pioneering biblical scholars who became experts in a number of ancient languages. Travelling widely in the Middle East, they made several significant discoveries, including one of the earliest manuscripts of the Four Gospels in Syriac, a dialect of Aramaic, the language probably spoken by Jesus himself. Their chief discoveries were made in the Monastery of St Catherine on Mount Sinai. This text is a transcription and translation of an Arabic Christian manuscript discovered by Margaret Gibson in 1893 and first published in 1901. The text includes 'The Book of the Rolls', a retelling of early Biblical events; stories of Aphikia, a virtuous woman from the time of King Solomon; and the tale of Cyprian and Justa (recounted in Arabic and Greek). A useful resource for linguists and for scholars in the history of Arabic Christianity.

Apocrypha Arabica was published by Cambridge University Press (Virtual Publishing) in June 2015. The ISBN for Apocrypha Arabica is 9781139169134.
