Last Call for a Discounted Set on Bedjan's Homilies of Jacob of Sarug
- This is a last call to obtain the Bedjan-Brock edition of the Homilies of
Jacob of Sarug (6 volumes, ca. 5,000 pages) at the pre publication price.
The Homilies of Jacob of Sarug, published originally by Bedjan in 1902-1010,
are not only very hard to find in the antiquarian market, but are lacking in
many academic libraries. The 5-volume set had to be gathered by Gorgias
Press from three different scholars who owned incomplete sets. Gorgias's
edition, edited by Sebastian P. Brock, includes a new sixth volume. The
Gorgias edition includes the following new material:
1. Eleven additional homilies taken from Bedjan's S. Martyrii qui et
Sahdona quae supersunt omnia (1902)
2. Five additional homilies not published by Bedjan, and published here
for the first time.
3. A 50-page biography of Paul Bedjan (1838-1920) by H. Murre Van den
4. Index of First Lines (including first lines of unpublished homilies
found in manuscripts of Middle Eastern and western libraries) by SPB.
5. Index of Modern Translations by SPB.
6. Index of Manuscripts used by SPB.
7. Index of Biblical Passages commented on by SPB.
8. Index of Names and Subjects by SPB.
Gorgias has undertaken this huge project under tremendous cost (the book is
about 5,000 pages!), and given the market for this book is forced to price
it at $1200 (still, much cheaper than what other publishers would have sold
it for!). But in order to help scholars and students obtain the book, it is
now being offered at a pre-publication price of $750. The full price will
take effect on March 20, 2006.
