Abstract :
This article presents a previously unknown work by Šem'ōn d-Ṭaibūtēh, an East Syriac monastic author of the 7th century. In addition to discussing the manuscript evidence for this short treatise and its authenticity, the authors offer an edition of the Syriac text based on the one available witness, an early 20th century manuscript from Šarfeh (Lebanon), and an edition of a Sogdian translation of the text which they have discovered in the Berlin Turfan collection.
