Abstract [en]

This study contains a critical edition with an English translation of the commentary on the Book of Kings which is a part of the exegetical work the Storehouse of Mysteries by the West-Syrian scholar John Bar-Hebraeus (1226-1286). The work is based on the oldest surviving manuscript of the Storehouse of Mysteries, manuscript Florence 230 (written 1278), collated with all manuscripts which are older than the 19th century. The study also contains a description of the manuscripts of the Storehouse of Mysteries and an investigation into the sources used by Bar-Hebraeus in his commentary. Also a short study of the Syriac exegesis in its east and west traditions is supplied.
