I have a tendency to have Word documents on my Windows Desktop. A couple of these have been staring at me for a while now, and I decided that I needed to do something about them. What, I wondered, was “denys.doc”?
Well, it related to this post; the opening portion of the fourth part of the Syriac Chronicle of ps.Dionysius of Tell-Mahre, otherwise known as the Chronicle of Zuqnin from the place where the manuscript was found. I must have scanned the opening pages — although I don’t seem to have that scan now — and perhaps I worked on them on another PC. Anyway I have tidied them away. But the material was certainly interesting, relating to the end of the Roman period and the Moslem invasions. The French was easy enough, and online. I may look at this a bit more this evening.
