Title: Ephremiana in Manuscript Sinai Syr. 10
Author(s): BROCK, Sebastian
Journal: Le Muséon
Volume: 129 Issue: 3-4 Date: 2016
The manuscript Sinai Syr. 10, of the 8th/9th century, contains a very miscellaneous collection of texts among which are several which concern works under Ephrem’s name. Besides the important list of Ephrem’s madrashe and their qale, published by A. de Halleux, there are three further items of interest: (1) a collection of select madrashe; (2) four soghyatha; and (3) a memra ‘on the End’. The select madrashe prove to be excerpts from De Virginitate, De Ecclesia (including some otherwise lost stanzas), and De Nativitate; for these, collations with Beck’s editions (CSCO) are provided. Items (2) and (3), all specifically attributed to Ephrem and none of them attested elsewhere, are here published and translated for the first time. The question of their authenticity is also discussed.
