ByQashisha Yosip d-Bet Qelaita

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
The Book of Kalilah and Dimnah is a collection of animal tales that originate in India and were written in Sanskrit under the title of “Panchatantra” or “Five Principles”. The purpose of the stories is to teach moral values concerning friendship and harmony and the things that can come between friends and destroy harmony among them. Two Syriac translations, one from Old Persian and one from Arabic, were made by Assyrians in antiquity. From these versions, the stories were translated into many other languages and traveled around the world. In 1895 Mar Thoma Audo published a new Syriac translation from the Arabic text and in 1908 he published an edition in Modern Assyrian in Urmia. This volume presents the Modern Assyrian version published by Qashisha Yosip d-Bet Qelaita in Iraq in 1936. The contents of this book is entirely in the Assyrian language.
