AA.12.06

Harrak The plaque seems to have been reused during the renovations of 1744 and thus must have existed before this date. The surviving formula is attested between the 9th and the 14th centuries and thus the plaque must be quite old; see for example AI.01: Nineveh, Old Mosul, The Syriac Orthodox Church of Mār Tūmā; Wall to the right side of the sanctuary of St. Behnam

Harrak Inscription A is definitely dated to 1848: Nineveh, Old Mosul, The Syriac Orthodox Church of Mār Tūmā; Above the main altar

AA.12.03

Harrak The inscription must be old since it appears on the box of relics. The spelling of the first line (with the possible influence of Arabic) suggests, however, that it is not extremely old. The time of the siege of Mosul in 1743 might be the right date: Nineveh, Old Mosul, The Syriac Orthodox Church of Mār Tūmā; On a box inside the niche

AA.11.07

Harrak Unknown. The date is buried inside the ground, but it is probably early 19th century. Similar shapes of the slab and comparable content in Garshuni are attested; see AA.04.12 dated to 1847 and deriving from Mosul: Nineveh, Old Mosul, The Chaldean Church of Mār Gīwargīs; Courtyard and cemetery

AA.11.06

AA.11.02

About Epigraphy

Epigraphy is the study of writings inscribed on durable materials such as stone, terracotta, wood, or metal. Epigraphy is the study of inscriptions.

Inscriptions are primary documents. As such, they provide direct and immediate reference to the culture being studied. Inscriptions yield information on many aspects of society, including religion, literature, art, architecture, politics, social culture, and language. 

The very words used in inscriptions sometimes offer meanings and nuances previously unrecognized when given in other contexts. These extended meanings can bring a deeper understanding to literary texts and other documents where the words are used.   

Unlike manuscripts, inscriptions provide us with original texts that have not been subject to later editing or revision. They can supply exact details that writers of the time often leave out: the cost of building projects down to the smallest sums, or military expeditions to the man. 

Virtually every aspect of ancient life, both public and private, can be found expressed in inscriptions. Through the study of inscriptions our concept of the ancient world evolves and becomes more complete.
