Excerpt from S. Ephraim's Quotations From the Gospel, Vol. 7: Collected and Arranged

This book is an attempt to determine what text of the Gospels was used in the genuine works of S. Ephraim, and to investigate the bearing of his quotations upon the date of the Peshitta. S. Ephraim, commonly known as Ephraem Syrus, is the only one of the worthies of the Syriac-speaking Church whose name is well know both in the East and the West, and his surviving works, even when all doubtful and spurious pieces have been set on one side, are by themselves as voluminous as all the other remains of Syriac literature earlier than 400 AD. He himself died about 373 AD, so that any version of the Bible used by him must be at least as old as the fourth century.

In the first quarter of the fifth century the Gospel was extant in Syriac in three forms:

1. The Syriac Vulgate, now commonly called the Peshitta. This version is extant in numerous MSS, some even as old as the middle of the fifth century, and has been frequently printed. The text even of the most ancient MSS of this version differs but little from the printed editions, and such variations as exist are mostly concerned with spelling and questions of grammatical form. This is the version in ecclesiastical use among all the sects of Syriac-speaking Christians.

2. The Evangelion da-Mepharreshe (i.e. 'The Separated Gospels'), also called by the followers of the late Dr. Hort the Old Syriac.
