July 16-18: XI Symposium Syriacum
« on: July 16, 2012, 04:09:14 PM »

The 11th Symposium Syriacum will take place from July 16th to July 18th in Malta. At these conferences, which take place once every four years, scholars from around the world gather to present their latest research results on Syriac literature, culture, language, etc.

Just a few examples of the many lectures that will take place during these three days:

“Syriac readings and the Septuagint.”
“The mystery of the divine self-giving: reading Genesis with Ephrem Syrus”
“Syriac inscriptions from a medieval Christian community in Urgut, Uzbekistan”
“The Lost Manuscripts of the Arabic Version of the Life of Severus of Antioch.”
“The Syriac Encyclical Letter of Athanasius II of Balad, Patriarch of Antioch, which forbids the partaking of the sacrifices of the Muslims.”
“St. Isaac the Syrian’s description of rapture: Radical anthropology and reality levels.”
“Bar Hebraeus and al-Ghazali: The Image of “the good wife” between Christianity and Islam”

Looks interesting.
