I thought I would notify everyone of the fact that the Oriental Orthodox Library has been updated since the time of the last post in this thread. The following books in the Oriental Orthodox Library series are now available for purchase:The Kebra Nagast or Book of Kings
The Kebra Nagast, or the Book of the Glory of Kings, is an account written in Ge'ez of the origins of the Solomonic line of the Emperors of Ethiopia. The text, in its existing form, is at least seven hundred years old, and is considered by many Ethiopian Christians to be an inspired and a reliable account. Not only does it contain an account of how the Queen of Sheba met Solomon, and about how the Ark of the Covenant came to Ethiopia with Menelik I, but contains an account of the conversion of the Ethiopians from the worship of the sun, moon, and stars to that of the "Lord God of Israel".

From: $36.35 The History of the Patriarchs of the Coptic Orthodox Church to 849 AD
The History of the Patriarchs of Alexandria is the Liber Pontificalis of the Coptic church. The first part of it is a compilation made, as we read in one of the prefaces at the head of the manuscripts, by Severus, bishop of El-Eschmounein in upper Egypt, between Minieh and Asiout, based on Greek and Coptic documents which he found in the monasteries of his country, and which he translated with the help of some clerks. This history of the first centuries of the Coptic church is based above all on Eusebius and some primitive Acts, But from the seventh century on, and above all from the era of the Arab conquest, the history of the patriarchs becomes much more complete and more interesting. Here we have a series of real biographies written by contemporary authors, such as John the Deacon, in the time of the patriarch Michael I, and George, archdeacon and syncellus of the patriarch Simon.
From: $34.34 The Syriac History of Zachariah of Mitylene
The Syriac Chronicle of Zachariah of Mitylene is a very important source of information about the anti- Chalcedonian communion to the middle of the 6th century. It contains letters by many of the patriarchs and leading figures of the resistance to Chalcedon, as well as documentary evidence of the basis of the long standing and principled objection to the Chalcedonian position. This translation of the Syriac Chronicle of Zachariah of Mitylene was produced by F.J. Hamilton and E.W. Brooks in 1899.
From: $33.56 The Ascetic Discourses and Three Letters of Philoxenus of Mabbog
Philoxenus (Syriac, Aksenaya) of Mabbog (died 523), was one of the best of Syriac prose writers, and a vehement champion of the Anti-Chalcedonian doctrine in the end of the 5th and beginning of the 6th centuries. The years which followed the Council of Chalcedon were a stormy period in the Syrian Church. Philoxenus soon attracted notice by his strenuous advocacy of Non-Chalcedonian doctrine, and on the expulsion of Calandio in 485 was ordained bishop of Mabbog by his Non-Chalcedonian successor Peter the Fuller . It was probably during the earlier years of his episcopate that Philoxenus composed his thirteen discourses on the Christian life.
