The Old Testament in Syriac according to the Peshitta Version, Part V: Concordance, Vol. 1 Pentateuch
This is the first volume of a six-volume Concordance based on the critical text edition of the PeshitÌ£ta (published by Brill from 1972 onwards). This first part focuses on the Pentateuch, while subsequent volumes will cover Historical Books, Prophets, Writings, Deutero-Canonical and Apocryphal Books. The final part will comprise a General Index.
Each volume will contain: 1) A General Concordance presenting the Syriac lemmata in alphabetical order, Hebrew and/or Greek correspondences (in accordance with the supposed original language of each book), a Latin and English translation, and variants (including those of the editions of Mossul, Urmia, Lee). 2) An Appendix, consisting of indexes on: Proper and Geographical Names, English, Latin, Hebrew, Greek and Syriac words (listed according to their roots), prepositions and characteristics of verb forms.
The concordance will serve as an important tool for scholars and students in the fields of biblical exegesis, philological and linguistic studies, translation technique and the study of the theology of the Syriac churches.
