Erwin Preuschen provides here a study of two “Gnostic” hymns found in Syriac translations. For the first hymn, Preuschen presents both a Greek and Syriac text, along with German translations of each, and the text of the second, longer hymn is presented in Syriac with translation. Following the presentation and translation of these texts, Preuschen offers an in depth analysis of the content of each hymn. Prueschen concludes the study with a more general discussion of what these hymns mean for early Syriac-speaking Christianity—particularly as it applies to the form of Christianity practiced by the followers of Bardaisan.
