"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 )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 51 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."--

"Mar Isaac of Nineveh, a native of Beth Qatraye, was born in the early part of the 7th century. He was ordained bishop of Nineveh, but resigned the office after only five months to pursue the life of a solitary monk. Among the many writers of the Assyrian Church of the East on the spiritual life, Mar Isaac is considered the greatest. His writings have enjoyed a wide circulation among Christians in the east and west through translations into eighteen classical and modern languages. The fact that Mar Isaac is venerated as a saint in the Orthodox and Roman Catholic churches is a remarkable testimony to the profound influence his writings have had on the spiritual life of many Christians. This also testifies to the truth that spirituality often provides a means to transcend the narrow confines of sectarian differences. This volume contains an English translation of the original Syriac texts edited and published by Fr. Paul Bedjan in 1909"--
