Abstract

The Persian Martyr Acts are a series of Syriac martyrological texts composed from the fourth century into the Islamic period. One of the only of these martyr acts never before published is the History of Holy Mar Ma‘in of Sinjar, which tells the story of a Sasanian general during the time of Shapur II (309–79) who suffered persecution after his conversion to Christianity. Composed probably in the sixth century, the life of this confessor and holy man is of a higher literary quality than most of the other texts describing martyrdoms under Shapur II. Like several other similar documents, such as the History of Mar Qardag, it appears to be a legendary projection back onto the great age of Christian martyrs of the fourth century. In this volume, the first in this new series from Gorgias Press, Sebastian P. Brock provides the first edition of the Syriac text of the History of Ma‘in and the first full translation of it, as well as a textual and historical commentary. In addition to these materials, this volume also includes a basic guide to the bibliography, both primary and secondary, of the whole corpus of Persian Martyr Acts as well as useful indices to these numerous and diverse texts. This will serve as a basic handbook to any future literary or historical work on the Martyr Acts.

Abstract

What was Joseph’s reaction when he arrived home to find Mary pregnant? How did Mary manage to persuade him that her child was none other than the Son of God? The Syriac literary tradition had a unique way of answering these sorts of questions raised by the Bible. Dialogue poems (sughyotho) offer lively, thought-provoking, and often delightful re-imaginings of Biblical events. They expand the Biblical stories, giving the familiar characters more dialogue and describing their inner thoughts. The collection provides five dialogue poems featuring Mary, in Syriac original with facing English translation.

Abstract

The Martyrs of Mount Ber’ain is the poignant tale of an Iranian nobleman’s three children, Adarparwa, Mihrnarse, and Mahdukht, who embrace Christianity after the youngest brother’s near-death vision of God. This decision estranges them from their disbelieving father and ultimately results in death at the hands of King Shapur II. Gabriel “the Cow,” abbot of the monastery of Beth ‘Abe, composed the account of these events in the middle of the seventh century. The Martyrs of Mount Ber’ain provides important evidence for enduring concerns of Christian self-definition in the framework of the Sasanian Empire, especially as represented by the Zoroastrian priesthood. The three children, Adarparwa, Mihrnarse, and Mahdukht, work to forget their education by the Magi, with whom they soon find themselves engaged in battle; and yet some key features of the narrative, especially Mihrnarse’s vision, reflect shared idioms between Christians and their Zoroastrian rivals. This rivalry was committed to writing and commemorated even after the Arab conquest, and one of these three sibling-martyrs, the sister Sultana Mahdukht, is still memorialized in both Iraq and the United States.
