Dominique Gonnet, s.j.: A Syriac Life of Symeon Stylites (Ms. Damas 12/17, ff. 52b.1-71b.3). Edition, Analysis and Perspectives
On Fr René Lavenant’s initiative, a team works on the publication of A Syriac Life of Symeon Stylites (Ms. Damas 12/17, ff. 52b.1-71b.3) at Sources Chrétiennes. The paper will present the main problems encountered in the work of this edition and translation: the manuscript itself, the historical questions about its variations related to other versions of the Life, what we can learn from them. In general, we want to highlight what this version brings to the research on Symeon Stylites.
