    Bardaisan, the first Christian author in Syriac, whose thought is known mainly from the Book of the Laws of Countries, is often considered as a philosopher, and his thought is very frequently understood in the light of Greek philosophy (e.g. Stoicism). However, scholars who argue for Greek influence on Bardaisan seldom ask whether or to what extent Bardaisan really knew Greek; and curiously enough, some rare evaluations of his knowledge of Greek are rather negative. This problem needs to be solved. The present article addresses the problem by examining the Greek loan words used by Bardaisan in the Book of the Laws of Countries, and also by comparing his knowledge of astrology with that of the astrology as presented in Greco-Roman astrological literature, and argues that his knowledge of Greek was far from extensive and that he should be considered as one of the first thinkers who thought not in Greek but in Syriac.

     Research paper (scientific journal) 
    One of the most prominent monks of the fourth century, Macarius the Egyptian has been treated in various ways by the literary tradition of the Christian Orient. Homilies attributed to him, although they have been proved to be unauthentic, are among the most read of spiritual texts; apophthegmata related to him are well known; and all these works have been transmitted in several languages of the region, as is also the case with his Life, the subject of my doctoral dissertation. One might expect that we know much about this famous figure.However, it is far from certain that various anecdotes,...

     Research paper (scientific journal) 
    The Apophthegmata patrum is generally considered as one of the best witnesses about early monasticism in Egypt, especially about its spirituality. But it is equally well known that manuscript traditions of this document are extremely complicated, and one still does not know its primitive form nor the extent of the apophthegmata contained in that primitive form. Then, which elements that one finds in the extant form of the Apophthegmata patrum can be considered as deriving authentically from monks of the 4th century?To answer this question, the present paper compares the Apophthegmata patrum...

     Research paper (scientific journal) 
    The rise of the Christian monasticism has been one of the most discussed problems in the studies of the history of the Early Christianity, and especially its possible relation with the non-Christian religions was once a favorite theme of some scholars. The hypothesis of the Manichaean influence on the making of the Christian monasticism is a discussion of this type. In the present article, giving special attention to the hypothesis of L.Koenen, the author has examined the problem concerning the cases of Egypt and the Syrian Orient, and reached the following conclusions: ・since Manichaeism a...
