"St. Isaac of Nineveh, or, as he is sometimes known, St. Isaac the Syrian, was born in the region of modern Qatar and lived during the seventh century. Ordained as the bishop of Nineveh sometime between 661 and 681 CE, Isaac withdrew from his ecclesiastical office after only five months, retiring to live as a monastic hermit in the mountains of southeastern Iraq. Translated from their original Syriac into a number of other languages, St. Isaac's spiritual writings have been read by Christian monastics for centuries." "The present selection of 153 short sayings by St. Isaac is drawn from both the "First Part" and the "Second Part" of his literary corpus, and it follows the sequence of these two volumes. Here, in the inaugural volume of the Texts from Christian Late Antiquity (TeCLA) series, Gorgias Press is pleased to present Sebastian Brock's English translation of St. Isaac's writings accompanied for the first time by the Syriac text."--BOOK JACKET

Isaac the Syrian's spiritual works by Isaac( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Isaac the Syrian lived the solitary life in the 7th century. He was born in Qatar and subsequently lived in present day Iraq and Iran. After life as a monk, then briefly as a bishop, he withdrew to live the solitary life. These discourses are primarily for solitaries to consolidate them in the love and mercy of God. Isaac returns frequently in this work to the theme of joy as it relates to repentance and also to inebriation - even as it were, as a participation in divine Nature. In ch.5, he discusses theosis. Discussions of divinization are not that common to his writings. Already Isaac has been able to cross all kinds of boundaries, both geographical and ecclesial. Now with theosis in ch. 5 there is possibility of ongoing discussion in Asian Christianity, especially with India in relation to Advaita. In this volume, the text of Isaac V has also been included because of the light which it sheds on Apocatastasis, of increasing interest in academic and ecclesial circles. Isaac III was originally edited and translated by Sabino Chialà of Bose. A French translation was subsequently done by Andre Louf."--

Discorsi ascetici by Isaac( Book )

14 editions published between 1984 and 2021 in Italian and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Isacco di Ninive (VII secolo), uno dei massimi autori spirituali di tutti i tempi, è un autentico caso di santo ecumenico, amato e letto ben oltre i confini della sua chiesa di appartenenza, l'antica chiesa siro-orientale. Monaco originario del Qatar, quindi vescovo di Ninive presso l'attuale Mosul, e poi ancora monaco, è autore di alcune collezioni di Discorsi, tre delle quali sono giunte sino a noi. La Prima collezione, qui tradotta per la prima volta integralmente in italiano dall'originale siriaco, ha conosciuto una fama eccezionale fin dall'antichità, come attestano le antiche versioni in tutte le lingue parlate dai cristiani, d'oriente e d'occidente. Il suo insegnamento semplice e profondo ha affascinato monaci e laici, lettori di ogni tempo e di ogni condizione, tra cui intellettuali della levatura di Dostoevskij"--
