Hugoye article on Syriac Infancy Gospel of Thomas now available

My article on the Syriac tradition of the Infancy Gospel of Thomas (titled, "The Infancy Gospel of Thomas from an Unpublished Syriac Manuscript. Introduction, Text, Translation, and Notes") can now be seen in preview at the Hugoye site (HERE). Here (once again) is the abstract:

The Syriac tradition of the Infancy Gospel of Thomas (IGT) has been published from three manuscripts, two of which hail from the 5th or 6th centuries. Unfortunately, all three sources lack large sections of the text. In 1914, Paul Peeters discussed a fourth Ms (Vat. Syr. 159 from the 17th century) preserving the entire text, but until now, that Ms has not been published. This article presents a diplomatic edition of Peeters’ Ms, comparing its readings with those previously published, and with another Ms very similar to Peeters’. Also included are a comprehensive overview of other Syriac sources for IGT, and a discussion of Peeters’ theory of Syriac composition for IGT.

Now that this article is in print, I can continue work on a full critical edition of the Syriac Infancy Gospel of Thomas to be published by Gorgias Press.
