Abstract

The Four Gospels (Old Syriac version) are the earliest extant translation of The Four Gospels (literary tradition) into Syriac as "separated Gospels" (not a Gospel harmony). They were probably translated in the 4th or 5th century (though their roots may date to the 3rd), and they predate The Four Gospels (Peshitta version) , which ultimately replaced them in the 5th or 6th century.7
