Prologue

ܒܪ ܦܡܦܝܠܣ ܐܘܣܒܝܣ ܩܣܪܝܐ. ܟܕ ܐܟܬܒ ܒܥܣܪܐ ܫܪ̈ܒܐ ܐܩܠܣܝܣܛܝܩܐ. ܐܝܟ ܕܢܐܡܪ ܚ̈ܫܐ ܕܣ̈ܗܕܐ ܘܕܐܦ̈ܣܩܘܦܐ ܬܘܒ ܘܕܡ̈ܘܕܝܢܐ: ܘܕܢ̈ܫܐ ܚܠܝܨ̈ܬܐ ܘܒܬ̈ܘܠܬܐ ܢܟ̈ܦܬܐ: ܗܠܝܢ ܕܚܝܠܬܢܐܝܬ ܥܒܕܘ ܗܘܘ ܐܓܘܢܐ ܒܡܘܕܝܢܘܬܐ ܕܡܛܠ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܐܠܗܢ. 1
Bar Pamphile Eusèbe de Césarée, quand il écrivit l’Histoire ecclésiastique en dix livres, écrivit pour ainsi dire les passions des martyrs, des évêques, des confesseurs, des femmes vaillantes et des vierges chastes qui ont puissamment combattu dans la confession du Christ notre Dieu. 1

Incipit (Opening Line)

ܣܝܠܒܣܛܪܘܣ ܕܝܢ ܟܕ ܒܛܠܝܘܬܗ ܠܩܫܝܫܐ ܩܘܪܝܢܐ ܢܩܝܦ ܡܫܡܫ ܗܘܐ. ܘܒܡܡܠܠܗ ܕܗܢܐ ܘܒ̈ܙܢܘܗܝ ܐܬܥܝܕ. ܟܕ ܡܫܡܠܐ ܚܦܝܛܐܝܬ ܘܝܨܝܦܘܬܐ ܕܒܝܬܗ. 1
Dans sa jeunesse, Silvestre servait le prêtre Quirinus, auquel il était attaché, et il s’habitua à son éloquence et à ses manières en s’acquittant avec zèle du soin de sa maison. 1

Explicit (Closing Line)

ܘܡܛܠ ܕܒܪܝܫ ܐܕܪ ܗܠܝܢ ܗܘ̈ܝ ܗܘܝ. ܣܓ̈ܝܐܐ ܒܦܛܝܪ̈ܐ ܐܬܩܪܒܘ ܠܡܥܡܘܕܝܬܐ ܬܡܢ ܒܪܗܘܡ. ܘܡܢ ܗܘܿ ܙܒܢܐ ܪܒܝܐ ܗܘܬ ܗܝ ܟܪܣܛܝܢܘܬܐ ܒܥܘܕܪܢܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ. ܒܡܦܝܣܢܘܬܐ ܕܡܠܟܐ ܒܪܗܘܡܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܡܪܢ... ܐܡܝܢ. 1
Et parce que cela s’était passé au début de Adar, beaucoup pendant les Azymes s’approchèrent du baptême là à Rome. Et à partir de ce moment grandisait le christianisme avec l’aide de Dieu, par la persuasion de l’empereur dans la ville de Rome, au nom de notre Seigneur… Amen. 1
