Forskning

The main interest for my research is philosophical and zoological texts in Syriac. In addition to my doctoral thesis, I have written an article with the title “The Remnant of a Questions and Answers Commentary on Aristotle’s Categories in Syriac (Vat. Syr. 586)” (accepted for Studia graeco-arabica 9, 2019). In the field of Syriac zoology, I have identified and extracted 15 chapters from Timothy of Gaza’s animal book in a Syriac manuscript compilation and I am currently finishing a book chapter about the different Syriac Physiologus versions and their later tradition. In the near future, I plan to (re-)edit the old Syriac translation of the Physiologus as well. I work also on an article about the unique chapter in the Syriac Physiologus that deals with a giant mythical bird and on a study about the concept of Time as Fate/God in the Letter of Mara bar Serapion. In all my research, I pay also due attention to lexical and linguistic matters in the Syriac texts and manuscripts that I read.
