And you shall sleep restful nights" (St. Ephraim the Syrian).

Syriac Women

Almost alone in the world today, Brown University's Susan Ashbrook Harvey, an Orthodox Christian, has been focused on Syriac Christianity in general and women in particular. Her latest book continues this scholarship:

Susan Ashbrook Harvey, Song and Memory: Biblical Women in Syriac Tradition (Marquette UP, 2010), 96pp. 

This short book is based on the author's 2010 Père Marquette Lecture at the university of the same name. It will be reviewed in 2011 in Logos: A Journal of Eastern Christian Studies.
