An Early Arabic New Testament Translation

Date: Oct 17, 2017 Time: 10:00 AM–12:00 PM Location: Harvard Faculty Club Address: 20 Quincy Street Cambridge, MA 02138

A workshop for students focusing on early Arabic translations of the New Testament. Led by Jack Tannous, Princeton University.

In this workshop, we will look at and discuss several early Arabic translations of the New Testament, including Sinai Arabic 73, Sinai Arabic 151, and Vatican Arabic 13. Special attention will be given to Sinai Arabic New Finds MG 2, a bilingual Greek-Arabic manuscript of the letters of Paul. We will examine the question of the manuscript’s Vorlage.

Seating is limited. Registration is required. A short group of pre-assigned readings will be circulated at least one week prior to the workshop. Participants are expected to complete the readings before the workshop. Registration closes October 13.

This workshop is part of the Studying East of Byzantium III workshop series. EAST OF BYZANTIUM is a partnership between the Arthur H. Dadian and Ara Oztemel Chair of Armenian Art at Tufts University and the Mary Jaharis Center that explores the cultures of the eastern frontier of the Byzantine empire in the late antique and medieval periods.
