I, The concluding portion of a Syriac version of the
Apocalypse or Vision of S. Paul (ff. 1 — 4), It differs somewhat
(chiefly at the end) both from the recension translated by the
Rev. Justin Perkins (from a MS. acquired in 1862 from Stoddard
in Urumiyah), and published in the Journal of the Amei^ican



1168 Add. 2043

Oriental Society, vol. viii., pp. 183 sqq., also reprinted in the
Journal of Sacred Literature, vol. i., pp. 372 sqq. (1865), and
from that translated by Zingerle from Cod. Vat. Syr., no. 180
(Assemani, C.B.V., t. iii., 1, pp. 374 sqq.) in Heidenheim's
Vierteljahrsschrift, no. xiv. (vol. iv., pt. 2), pp. 139 sqq. (1869).
Another fragment of the Syriac version is found in Add. 2050
below. There are Karshiini recensions in Trinity College,
Cambridge (R. 13. 49 ; Palmer, Cat, p. 133), Paris (Zotenberg,
no. 232, 6), and Rome (Cod. Vat. Syr. no. 202 [xx], C.B.V.,
t. iii., 1, p. 472). For the Gr. and English (Perkins') see also
Tischendorf, Apocalypses Apocryphae, pp. 34 — 69, and for the
Latin etc., see M. R. James, Apocrypha Anecdota in " Texts
and Studies" (1893).

The fragment which has survived corresponds to the English
in Journ. Am. Or. Soc, p. 207, 1. 4, to p. 210, 1. 4 (= Tischen-
dorf, p. 65, n. 48, 1. 5 to p. 69, n. 51).

The conclusion of f 4 h runs as follows : —

The angel's words, the account of the writing and concealing
of the revelation, and the first part of the story of its discovery
are wanting after ^ ^Mlo . The other two Syriac MSS. are
complete in this respect, and, curiously enough, the Vatican
MS. apparently* inserts quite unnecessarily ^£S33 ^iSOt^UbufO

after m^ 9kbo2o, and continues with the words of the angel.

* Zingerle (op. cit., p. 174) has "mit grosser Heftigkeit."

II. A fragment (fiP. 5—8), consisting of songs of praise in

Isaiah, f. 6a; Macarius the younger, f. 66; [Paul] the simple
