A fragment of Ephraem the Syrian and the rare word asiantos vindicated

1994

Abstract

ADDITIONAL MS. 39583 is a miscellany of fragments collected by Robert Curzon, the writer of Travels to Monasteries in the Levant. One of the fragments, f. 14, is a single leaf written in Greek in about the tenth century in upright so-called 'Slavonic' uncials. On the facing page Curzon made a note in pencil: 'One leaf of a Greek Manuscript of the 7th or 8th century A.D. in small uncial letters, with accents, this leaf was found in the binding of a manuscript of more recent date, in the library of the monastery of Caracalla, on Mount Athos.' It contains a portion of Ephraem the Syrian's 'Sermo Compunctorius' (Clavis Patrum Graecorum 3908), corresponding to pp. 37C8-38E3 of Volume I of Assemani's six-volume edition of the works of Ephraem.
