I've been searching unsuccessfully tonight for resources on Bible Interpretation in the Oriental Church. I've found references to unpublished dissertation (one by a Dominican that I might be able to lay my hands on at a reasonable cost) and the following items:

Lucas Van Rompay's, 'Between the School and the Monk’s Cell: The Syriac Old Testament Commentary Tradition', in Bas ter Haar Romeny (ed.), The Peshitta: Its Use in Literature and Liturgy. Papers Read at the Third Peshitta Symposium (Monographs of the Peshitta Institute Leiden 15; Leiden: Brill, 2006).

van Rompay, L., "The Christian Syriac Tradition of Interpretation," in: M. Sæbø (ed.), Hebrew Bible / Old Testament: The History ofInterpretation. Vol. I: From the Beginnings to the Middle Ages (Until 1300). Part 1: Antiquity (Göttingen: Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht, 1996), 612-641.

———, "Development of Biblical Interpretation in the Syrian Churches of the Middle Ages," in: M. Sæbø (ed.), Hebrew Bible / Old Testament: The History of Its Interpretation. Vol. I: From the Beginnings to the
Middle Ages (Until 1300). Part 2: The Middle Ages (Göttingen:Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht, 2000), 559-577.

Kannengiesser, C., "Syriac Christian Literature," in: Idem, Handbook of Patristic Exegesis: The Bible in Ancient Christianity. 2 vols. (The Bible in Ancient Christianity 1; Leiden / Boston: Brill, 2004), vol. 2, 1377-1446.

Isn't the plan supposed to be that Logos provides the resources before I need them?

Thanks for your humour, MJ!              *smile*                  Wasn't it Hannibal who said, "I love it when a plan comes together!"???

                  I'm not sure that's what Bob had in mind when he (with great support, I think!) began Logos; however, it's a good plan for now, eh???

Great thought!               Thank you!

Peace!

Peace, George!              *smile*            No!       A different Hannibal.  However, you're probably not old enough to have watched the TV series, eh???

I'll see what I can do on these and other Oriental resources. There will definitely be an effort to get as many Oriental works as possible, and even in original languages.
