The chronicle of Zuqnīn. A.D. 488-775 : translated from Syriac with notes and introduction by Pseudo-Dionysius( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Syriac chronicle of Zuqnin features accounts of the world from its creation to the eighth century A.D. Part III preserves much of the lost work of the late sixth-century Syriac historian, John of Ephesus, who described at length the persecution launched by the Chalcedonians against the adherents of Monophysitism; the Great Plague which broke out around the middle of the sixth century and which devastated the "whole world"; and three decades in Byzantium where he was exposed to the world of imperial and church politics at the time of Justinian (527-565). John's early admiration for the Emperor and his subsequent frustration with him are vividly portrayed." "Part IV deals with the seventh and eighth centuries. The entries are more developed for the few years after 715, while the accounts dealing with the period between 767 and 775 grow very detailed, even verbose. The rapcious economic policy of the early 'Abbasid caliphs is the main theme, a policy which turned the particularly wealthy province of the Jazira (northern Syria) into ruins, due to the blatant exploitation of its human and agricultural resources."--BOOK JACKET
The chronicle of Zuqnīn by Pseudo-Dionysius( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Chronicle of Zuqnin is a universal history beginning with the Creation according to the biblical account and ending with the time of the Chronicler, the years 775-776 AD. The author is most probably Joshua the Stylite, a contemporary of the Caliphs al-Mansur and al-Mahdi, who lived in the monastery of Zuqnin that was located near Amid, the Diar-Bakr of modern Turkey. Parts I and II contain compiled sources some of which survived only in this Chronicle. Sources include the Bible, Cave of Treasures, the Sleepers of Ephesus, Eusebius of Caesarea, Socrates, and the short Chronicle called Pseudo-Joshua the Stylite that deals with Sassanian-Byzantine warfare at the begging of the 6th century. Parts III and IV cover the years 488 and 775 AD. In this volume, Parts I and II, including the author's dedicatory letter, are now published in an updated edition of the Syriac text and the first English translation
Chronicle : known also as the Chronicle of Zuqnin by Dionysius( )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Chronicle of Pseudo-Dionysius (or the Zuqnin Chronicle) is an important historiographical work dating from the end of the eighth century. The third part of the Chronicle, translated here, is based on the otherwise lost part of the Ecclesiastical History of John of Ephesus (d. ca. 588), which relates events in the reigns of Zeno, Anastasius, Justin I and Justinian. The work is written from the point of view of a religious dissident, a Monophysite, whose personal experience as a persecuted monk in his native Mesopotamia, as well as his later life in Constantinople, make the History a most interesting and unusual source
