Vol. I has added t.-p. in Syriac

History of the monastery of Beth Abhe and of Nestorianism for three centuries

I. The Syriac text, introduction, etc.–II. The English translation

The object of the present work is to give in a convenient form the complete Syriac text of the “Book of Governors”, together with an English translation and necessary notes.
The “Book of Governors”, better known as the “Historia Monastica of Thomas of Margâ”, was written in the Syriac language in the first half of the ninth century of our era. Its author Thomas was originally a monk in the famous Nestorian Monastery of Bêth ‘Âbhê, which was founded at the end of the sixth century by Jacob of Lâshôm, the modern Lasim near Kerkûk. Bêth ‘Âbhê was practically an offshoot of the “Great Monastery” of Mount Îzlâ near Nisibis, where the first Christian ascetics of Mesopotamia, under the direction of Mâr Awgîn of Clysma near Suez, established themselves in the early part of the fourth century. It was a building half fortress, half monastery, and it stood in a forest (hence the name Bêth ‘Âbhê, i. e., “house of the forest”) upon a mountain peak between two valleys on the right bank of the Great Zâb river. This monastery had been endowed with large estates and many possessions by several Persian noblemen, and to it was given the proud title of the “King of Monasteries”; its society generally contained several members of noble Persian families. The monks of Bêth ‘Âbhê were renowned for their learning, and under the shadow of its walls the revision and re-arrangement of the “Ḥudhrâ” or Service-Book for all the Sundays of the Year were made, and the famous recension of the Syriac version of the “Paradise” of Palladius was completed. Attached to the monastery was a fine ecclesiastical library in which were preserved copies of histories and other works which are no longer extant. Four, if not five, of the Patriarchs of the Nestorian Church were educated at Bêth ‘Âbhê, and during the period of which we have any written record of its existence, i. e., A.D., 595—850, at least one hundred of its sons became Bishops, Metropolitans, and Governors of Nestorian dioceses in Mesopotamia, Arabia, Persia, Armenia, Kurdistan and China.

What has given the Confessions their place in the devotional literature of the world is the fact that they touch the heights and depths of a true religious experience. Their writer, sensitive as he was to the various intellectual influences of his time, yet set before himself, as the dominant aim of his life, the knowledge of God. The book may be of service to us, in our endeavour to probe the roots of that prevalent unrest and dissatisfaction which partly prompt, and partly hinder, the task of “reconstruction.” Under Augustine’s guidance we may learn to take into account more seriously the reality of evil ; the presence of sin, and its pervasive power, in human life ; the barrenness of any system of thought, political or intellectual, which ignores man’s need of God in every sphere of his personal or social activity.

Includes bibliographical references and index

The purpose of the present work is not to translate but to give such an account of Augustine’s life and thought as may be derived from his letters. A lengthy correspondence in any controversy is sure to contain a great deal of repetition. The same illustrations, the same expositions, the same ideas are certain to be included over and over again. Such repetitions are for the most part avoided in the present work, which condenses the contents of the letters and presents their principal features.
But since Augustine often refers his correspondents for further information to what he has written en a particular subject in one of his larger treatises, it seemed necessary for completeness’ sake to reproduce in such cases the main ideas of the teaching to which the Bishop refers. On no single subject is the whole of Augustine’s teaching necessarily to be found in his letters. But if the letters are thus supplemented by what he has taught elsewhere a fairly full presentation of the great writer’s mind may be obtained.
The letters range over a period of forty-three years. The earliest was written in A.D. 386, the year before his conversion ; the latest in A.D. 429, the year before his death. There are 270 letters in the Benedictine edition. But of these, fifty are addressed to Augustine ; so that we have only 220 from the Bishop’s own pen. And these 220 include one or two official letters of Councils whose authorship is undoubted.
After all, 220 letters in forty-three years does not seem an unwieldy correspondence. If we omit the letters written before his consecration this leaves 213 during his episcopate.
But then in Augustine’s case a letter was often an elaborate treatise. So great was his wealth of thought that frequently his spring became a river and his river became a sea. These letters occupy a folio volume consisting, in Gaume’s edition, of 1370 columns.
Moreover, Augustine informs us that he estimated his writings to extend to 232 treatises, not including letters or sermons (Letter 224, 2).
Augustine’s letters were arranged by the Benedictine editors as far as possible in the order in which they were written. But there is a large section of which the dates are unknown. It has been thought best in the present summary of the contents to arrange the letters in groups according to subjects, preserving the chronological order, as far as possible, within each group. This arrangement has the advantage that Augustine’s teaching and development of mind on various doctrines can be easily followed. It also enables the reader to see the proportion of his correspondence on the principal subjects which absorbed his attention.

The success of this great work (Histoire des Empereurs) was immediate from the appearance of the first volume and led to a demand for the publication of the Histoire ecclésiastique. Boucherat, Chancelier of France, employed his influence. A new censor was appointed and permission was granted. Before publication, however, strong pressure was exerted on Tillemont to reorganize his work and arrange his material in the form of Annals. In refusing to make the change, he offered his Histoire to another or others who would be willing to rework it in the manner desired, but no one accepted the offer. Volume I was published in 1693. Its title reads : Mémoires pour servir à l’histoire ecclésiastique des six premiers siècles, justifiez par les citations des auteurs originaux, avec une chronologie où l’on fait un abrégé de l’histoire ecclésiastique et profane et des notes pour éclaircir les difficultez des faits et de la chronologie. Volumes II (1694), III (1695), and IV (1696) were prepared for the press by Tillemont himself.
Volumes V-XVI (1698-1712) were given their final preparation by Tronchay. Volume XIII, which contains the life of St. Augustine, appeared after VII, because the Latin vita published by the Maurists in their great edition of St. Augustine was a translation into Latin of the French original written by Tillemont, and it was thought desirable to make the French original available to the public as soon as possible.
