Synopsis

Saint Ephrem's Commentary on Tatian's Diatessaron An English Translation of Chester Beatty Syriac MS 709 with Introduction and Notes by Saint Ephraem

This is the first English translation of the commentary by fourth century AD theologian Ephrem the Syrian on the Diatessaron, a Gospel woven from the text of the four Gospels, which predates our earliest evidence of the official Syriac translation of the New Testament.

Reviews

Epohrem's commentary on the Syriac text of Tatian's Gospel Harmony has a two-fold value for the modern scholar ... it marks a foundational stage of biblical interpretation in the Syriac Church .,.. its other importance is as a vital textual witness to the Syriac Diatessaron text .... Sr McCarthy has provided a very clear and helpful English translation of the MS. * Alison Salvesen, Journal of Theological Studies, Vol. 47, No. 1, Apr '96 *
