This work is translated from additional MSS. 14258 (Br. Mus.), a Syriac MS. of the sixth century; and from other MSS. of almost equal antiquity; with a copious index. These are complete in this book of 193 Canons; and they were composed by eight different Synods, and were translated from Greek into Aramean carefully and with lucidity, in the City Maburg in the year 812 of Alexandros.
