Persian Diatessaron Republished in Iran!

Posted by: Sepehr Mohamadi in: ● April 27, 2009

Dear Friends,

It’s my pleasure to inform that, last week Persian Diatessaron has been republished by Asatir Publication in Iran-Tehran.

Within several days, this book should be online at this site and you can order it.

What is very important, is that, there seems small relation between this book and Tatian’s Diatessaron.

The translator of Persian Diatessaron seems that rewrote the Gospel according to Tatian and fill in the blank wherever Tatian missed anything from the four canonical gospels.

For the Moment, I would like to show you some pages of this book:

As you can see, the Syriac Estrangelo, is the script that the book originally translated, from and can be found in some portions of the book yet.

The translation table of this Diatessaron Gospel also very important that Giuseppe Messina in last year of his life published in Rome in 1951 under the name Diatessaron Persiano.

I’m studying on this book now and hope to publish the translation table of Arabic and Persian Diatessaron soon.

Please also visit my new project at Diatessaron.ir

It’s a wiki that set it’s mission to shed light on the Diatessaron, it’s history, different versions, theories about it and anything related to Diatessaron.

Please help this project to accumulate anything regarding this book.

Arabic and Latin Diatessaron electronic texts(pdf)

Posted by: Sepehr Mohamadi in: ● March 18, 2009

Diatessaron is a name for Jesus Christ Gospel according to Tatian the Syrian.

It’s original Syrian title is unknown but later it is called “ܐܘܢܓܠܝܘܢ ܕܡܚܠܛܐ”, or “اونجلیون دمحلطا” means “Gospel of the mixed” ,in opposition to “ܐܘܢܓܠܝܘܢ ܕܡܦܪܫܐ”, or “اونجلیون دمفرشا” means “Gospel of the separated”

Diatessaron is the oldest (Syrian) gospel ever known. Unfortunately the Syriac text of Diatessaron missed and we have just some quotations from it.

Diatessaron had been translated by Abul Faraj ibn Tayyeb from Syrian to Arabic in 11th century that survived for us.

The source for most published English translations are this Arabic translation.

A Persian translation from Syrian also exist.

Fortunately I have received an old version of the Arabic and Latin book published at 1888 in Rome.

This book published at Rome in 1888, in a volume entitled in Arabic Diatessaron, which Titianus Compiled from the Four Gospels,(دیاطاسارون الذی جمعه طظیانوس من المبشرین الاربعه) with the alternative Latin title, Tatiani Evangeliorum Harmonicae, Arabice. The Roman volume consists of two parts-the text, covering a little over 209 very clearly printed Arabic pages, and a Latin half, comprising a scholarly introduction (pp. v.-xv.), a Latin translation (pp. 1-99), and a table showing the order in which the passages taken from the gospels occur in the text. The editor is P. Augustinus Ciasca, a well known Orientalist, “scriptor” at the Vatican Library.

For use of other researcher, here I’m publishing an electronic copy of this book that Published in Rome.

According to different page orders in Arabic and Latin parts of this book, I have divided the book into two parts: The Arabic Part and The Latin Part.

The Guide for the Perplexed by Maimonides

Posted by: Sepehr Mohamadi in: ● January 29, 2009

The Guide for the Perplexed is one of most important books of  Rabbi Moshe ben Maimon, who is known also as Maimonides.

This book is written in Arabic but with Hebrew Letters and it’s original name is ”دلاله الحائرین”.

It is told that Maimonides wanted that Moslems don’t understand the meaning of his book, so wrote the book in Hebrew letters.

By the way Moslems pay attention a lot to his book. Dr. Hussein Attai has been transliterated the book to arabic letter very good and pure.

As this book may be rare to find I’m publishing the electronic copy of book here:

Aramaic to Arabic Transliteration

Posted by: Sepehr Mohamadi in: ● November 22, 2008

As I have seen that, there is  a big demand on reading Aramaic Peshitta Bible or other Syrian resources for Arabic and Persian speaking people, I am suggesting a table for Transliterating Aramain-Syrian letters in Arabic or Persian Letters.

The following table is my proposition as the Aramaic to Arabic Transliteration

Also a PDF Version of this Translitration is available.

Please see the following as a sample:

Luke 11:47
Original Aramaic Text: ܘܝ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܒܢܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܩܒܪܐ ܕܢܒܝܐ ܕܐܒܗܝܟܘܢ ܩܛܠܘ ܐܢܘܢ
Transliterated Text: وي لكون دبنين انتون قبرا دنبيا دابهيكون قطلو انون
Arabic Van Dyck Translation: ويل لكم لانكم تبنون قبور الانبياء وآباؤكم قتلوهم

You can find the complete Peshitta New Testament Transliterated to Arabic Here.

Please let me know any feedback that you may have.
