Abstract

DESCRIPTION OF THREE SYRIAC OLD TESTAMENT MANUSCRIPTS BY W. BAARS Leiden During a recent journey to the Near East made by the Editor-in- Chief of the forthcoming edition of the Syriac Old Testament (Peshitta version) in order to investigate the material still to be found in the homeland of the Syriac churches some Syriac Old Testament manuscripts could be acquired. These manuscripts, a description of which is presented herewith, are deposited in the Peshitta Institute, Rapenburg 61, Leiden, the Netherlands. Pride of place must be given to MS No. 1 a damaged but nearly complete East Syriac copy of the Prophetical books dated A.D. 1306/7. With the exception of some Maronite and Malkite copies of the Psalms 1) this is the only dated fourteenth century copy of (a part of) the Syriac Old Testament which, as far as we know, has been preserved. At the same time it is one of the very few surviving dated MSS from that century of hardship 2) for the Nestorian Church 3). MS No. 2, also containing the Prophetical books (dated A.D. 1816 or 1817), though dating only from the time of revival of Syriac learning in Northern Iraq at the beginning
