Saint Isaac the Syrian Resources

It was mentioned by Kristian Heal on the Hugoye Syriac Studies list today that the fathers at Holy Transfiguration Monastery, just a hop, skip, and a jump from where I am writing this, have put together a website with a number of resources related to their two editions of the Ascetical Homilies of Saint Isaac the Syrian.

Especially useful for those who have bought the new edition, or the HTM-sold photocopy of the homilies from the first edition, is that they have posted online the various appendices in the first edition that are not included in either of those. I mentioned the contents of the new edition in a fairly post below, which includes links to other posts on the writings of Saint Isaac.

And later on the Hugoye list was the extraordinary news shared by Marcel Pirard that he has published the first critical edition of the Greek text of the Ascetical Homilies of St Isaac. Here is the information:
