They are not only interesting and witty travelogues, but they are also a superb record of the discovery of the Syriac palimpsest, and a narrative of the journeys and adventures surrounding that research. The text describes a very remarkable variant of the reported spoken word of Jesus Christ (Matthew xii: 36), which will be of interest to all Christians and scholars.

Book Description Sussex Academic Press. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, In the Shadow of Sinai: Stories of Travel and Biblical Research, Agnes Smith Lewis, Margaret Dunlop Gibson, "The text describes the discovery of a very remarkable variant of the reported spoken work of Jesus Christ, which will be of interest to all Christians and scholars. To this day I recall my reaction upon first reading the concluding chapter of In the Shadow of Sinai', with its discussion of a remarkable variant of the reported spoken word of Jesus Christ. Brought up with a start, I read the marked passage again and quickly went to the Bible. Sure enough, the reading Matthew xii. 36 was different. But why? Surely those in charge of biblical exegesis would have known of the publication of the Gibson sister's text. And so began a small personal odyssey to bring to light, once again, this remarkable finding." -- Anthony Grahame, From the Foreword. Bookseller Inventory # B9781898595236

Book Description Sussex Academic Press, United Kingdom, 1999. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In the Shadow of Sinai: A Story of Travel and Research from 1895 to 1897, and How the Codex was Found: A Narrative of Two Visits to Sinai from Mrs Lewis s Journals, 1892-1893 - published here in a new one-volume edition - were originally published in the late 1890s, to great acclaim. Taught the rudiments of photography, and having studied various languages, including Aramaic, they organized a caravan from Cairo to the Monastery of St. Catherine, at the foot of Mt Sinai. In the library they discovered, and photographed, most of the text of the hitherto undiscovered Syriac version of the Four Gospels, in a fourth-century palimpsest. Their work was widely acknowledged, and they were popular members of the Cambridge set of this period. . For the Scholar, this book is a welcome reprint of two worthy texts, with their focus on the vagaries and excitement of historical, biblical research. For the Traveller, it is a record of the hardships and rewards of travel one hundred years ago. And for the Christian, there lies within the discovery of a very remarkable variant of the reported spoken word of Jesus Christ (Matthew xii:36). Bookseller Inventory # AAG9781898595236
