  • Sebastian Brock, Bride of Light: Hymns on Mary from the Syriac Churches (1994; viii + 171pp). This volume contains a short introduction followed by the English translation of 47 hymns (40 madrashe, 4 soghyatha or dialogue poems, and 3 memre) on Mary. Most are anonymous texts from the fifth or sixth centuries, but 5 are attributed to St. Ephrem and 9 to Simeon the Potter.
