ByQasha Shmuel Dawid

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
St. Ephraim or Mar Aprim was born in 303 in Nisibis. He is considered one of the greatest poet-theologians of the Christian Church. He wrote hundreds of hymns, poems, and prose works which survive today in their original Syriac as well as in translations into Greek, Latin, Armenian and many other languages. In honor of his many contributions, he is known as the “Malpana Raba” or the Great Doctor of the Syriac speaking/using churches. Among his many works is a poem in 12 parts on the life of Joseph, the Old Testament Patriarch. The original Syriac text was edited and published by Paul Bedjan in 1891. This volume presents a modern Assyrian translation by Qasha Shmuel Dawid (1872-1930) that was published in Chicago in 1925.
