    'Doesn't one always think of the past, in a garden with men and women lying under the trees? Aren't they one's past, all that remains of it, those men and women, those ghosts lying under the trees... one's happiness, one's reality?'

    A family of four is walking around Kew Gardens in London, lost in their thoughts. The husband thinks of the girl who turned down his marriage proposal in this very garden many years ago. When asking his wife if it upsets her that he's thinking about this other woman, she reasons that one's past is like ghosts lying under the trees.

    Only Virginia Woolf can write a short story about completely ordinary things and people and make you long for more. With exquisite prose, she invites you along as she examines the beauty of normal summer's day.

    Adeline Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) was an English writer who, despite growing up in a progressive household, was not allowed an education. When she and her sister moved in with their brothers in a rough London neighborhood, they joined the infamous The Bloomsbury Group, which debated philosophy, art and politics. Woolf's most famous novels include 'Mrs Dalloway' (1925) and 'To the Lighthouse' (1927).

    "They were so absorbed in their plotting that they did not hear Boule de Suif return. But the Comte's whispered 'shh!' made them all look up. There she was. A sudden silence fell..."

    A group of wealthy passengers on a coach are side-eyeing a sex worker on board, who goes by the name "Boule de Suif" (Ball of Fat). But when she shares her food with everyone, the mood changes and the passengers all turn in for the night at an inn in good spirits. However, the next morning, they find that a Prussian officier is refusing to let them continue their journey until he's had his way with Boule de Suif. She refuses. But as the days passes, the other passengers grow more and more impatient.

    'Boule de Suif' is a great study of French society and moral attitudes in the late 1800s' France, and indeed, it makes you wonder what would be different today.

    Guy de Maupassant (1850 – 1893) was a French author and one of the fathers of the modern short story. His mother, Laure Le Poittevin, was an extremely well-read woman and introduced him to literature at a young age.

    'The Fortunate Foundlings' is a picaresque novel from 1744 featuring twins Horatio and Louisa, whose journey in the world differs because of their gender. They were both abandoned in infancy and adopted, but soon leave their carer to go off on their one. Whilst Louisa must fight to preserve her virtue in a man’s world, her brother joins the army. This is an eighteenth century rollercoaster - action packed, passionate, melodramatic, and at times unashamedly sentimental.

    Young Molly Gibson is the daughter of the widowed Dr Gibson. She has been brought up by her father, but as Molly approaches adulthood Dr Gibson foresees trouble ahead, and Molly’s life changes forever when her father decides to re-marry, bringing a new stepmother and stepsister into their formerly quiet lives. Though sweet and lovable, Molly’s new stepsister Cynthia has a knack for getting into trouble and soon she and Molly find themselves in all sorts of trying situations. Jane Austen fans would also enjoy this charming novel from the much-loved Victorian author Elizabeth Gaskell.

    Elizabeth Gaskell (1810-1865) is an enduringly popular and highly regarded English novelist. Born in Chelsea, London, Elizabeth was sent to live with her aunt in Knutsford, Cheshire after her mother died, a place which would provide inspiration for some of her most popular works, including ‘Cranford’. A sociable and lively young woman, Elizabeth married Minister William Gaskell in 1832 and settled in Manchester. An industrial hub and the scene of much political and social change, her time in Manchester influenced much of her writing. Her first novel, ‘Mary Barton’ focussed on the appalling and impoverished living conditions of those living in Northern industrial cities and was a huge success, sparking the interest of notable figures such as Charles Dickens, who invited Elizabeth to contribute to the periodicals he edited. An active humanitarian, her works dealt sympathetically with the plight of the poorest in society, and she did not shy away from controversial topics such as prostitution and illegitimacy. A close friend of Charlotte Brontë, Elizabeth also wrote a highly acclaimed biography of the author in 1857. Some of her best known and most loved novels include ‘Cranford’, ‘North and South’ and the posthumously published ‘Wives and Daughters’, all of which have been adapted for TV by the BBC, most recently ‘Cranford’ starring Judi Dench, Michael Gambon, and Greg Wise. Elizabeth Gaskell is regarded as one of the most important novelists of the Victorian era.

    Denna bok innehåller ett urval av böner från boken Prästens bönbok som sammanställdes och publicerades 1952 av Mar Philoxenos Yuhanon Dolabani, metropolit över Mardin i Turkiet, som gick bort 1969.

    En stor andlig skatt av sådana böner skrevs av vår kyrkas fäder för länge sedan, när våra troende helhjärtat hoppades och trodde på bönens makt efter det löfte som vår Herre Jesus Kristus gav sina efterföljare: ”Allt vad ni ber om i era böner skall ni få, om ni tror” (Matt 21:22).

    Tilltro till bönen var nämligen vägen till hopp, tröst, sinnesfrid och andlig glädje för dem som var fattiga, sjuka, sorgsna, förföljda eller förkrossade. Vi ber och hoppas att dessa böner också i våra dagar ska finna öppna hjärtan och upplysta sinnen som tror på deras andliga kraft och tar emot dem i tro.

    Det är med stor glädje vi presenterar denna översättning av vår ritual för det heliga dopet. Den är tryckt parallellt med det syrianska originalet. 

    Vi gläder oss över att få ge våra troende en översättning av vår lysande ritual för det heliga dopet. Nu ska de bättre kunna förstå vår urgamla traditions djupa rikedom, skönhet och mening som inviger människor i kristendomen. 

    Syrianska (eller arameiska), det språk som talades av vår Herre, hans välsignade mor och hans lärjungar, kommer alltid att vara vårt officiella språk. Trots detta har vår heliga Kyrka ständigt uppmuntrat att våra gudstjänstordningar översätts till de språk som talas av folket på alla de platser dit vår Kyrka spritt sig. Våra kloka kyrkofäder insåg att våra troende har behov av att kunna delta i Kyrkans ritualer på ett meningsfullt sätt. Det är deras rättighet.

    Må alla inblandades ansträngningar och uppoffringar flöda över till Guds ära och till alla våra älskade troendes tjänst och uppbyggelse.

    Den gudstjänstordning för den heliga vigseln (eller kröningsceremonin) som vår kyrka använder sammanställdes, ordnades och omarbetades av Sankt Jakob av Edessa (+708 e Kr) och andra lärda män i den heliga Kyrkan, vilka hade tagit emot den från Antiokias apostoliska Kyrkas urgamla tradition. Ordningen består av två separata gudstjänster: först förlovningen då man välsignar ringarna, och sedan välsignelsen över äktenskapet.

    I äktenskapets heliga mysterium förenas en man och en kvinna till att dela livet som en enda varelse och uppfostra en kristen familj. Vi lägger nu i denna översättning ödmjukt fram för våra trogna detta heliga sakraments skönhet och djupa innebörd. Vår bön och vårt hopp är att alla våra trogna genom denna blygsamma översättning ska lära känna och förstå den stora och heliga kallelsen till det kristna äktenskapet, som är ett sakrament som speglar och avbildar just vår Herres kärlek till sin församling.

    Vår kyrka kallar den kristna begravningsritualen för svepningens liturgi (tekso d?'oufoyo). Namnet kommer från den urgamla seden att svepa in de avlidna i ett särskilt tyg, liksom man gjorde när vår Herre begravdes. Ibland talar vår tradition om begravningsgudstjänsten som medföljandets liturgi (tekso d'louwoyo), eftersom våra kyrkofäder såg döden som en resa eller pilgrimsfärd på vilken de döda ger sig iväg, åtföljda av de troendes böner.

    Begravningsritualen består av att man mässar psalmer och hymner, läser lämpliga verser ur den heliga Skrift, förböner, förbönssånger och en litania. Genom hela ritualen betonas löftet om uppståndelsen dramatiskt - särskilt i de olika hymner som mässas under gudstjänsten. Många av dem komponerades av vår store kyrkofader Sankt Efraim (+ 373).

    Det är vår bön att den djupa rikedomen och innebörden i vår hedervärda kristna begravningstradition ska bli tillgänglig för alla våra troende genom våra enkla ansträngningar. Må vi alla, genom en bättre förståelse av våra begravningsgudstjänster, komma till djupare insikt om vårt eget öde som Guds skapelser och hans adopterade barn genom vår Herre och Frälsare, Jesus Kristus.

    "Something that he was going to say was cut short in his throat, and he sat there with his mouth half open and a terrible look in his eyes."

    A group of vulgar and disrespectful Prussian soldiers have seized a beautiful manor in Normandy, passing endless days with drinking, womanizing and vandalising. The worst of the soldiers is a man who goes by the name ''Mademoiselle Fifi" and he thinks he can get away with just about anything. But when he tries to have his way with a Jewish sex worker named Rachel, he has another thing coming.

    In 'Mademoiselle Fifi', the little guy – or girl – wins, which makes for a satisfying reading experience. The short story was adapted to screen in 1944 by Robert Wise, who would later go on to direct the Oscar winning movies 'West Side Story' (1961) and 'The Sound of Music' (1965).

    First published at the turn of the century, ‘The Splendid, Idle Forties’ by feminist author Gertrude Atherton is a collection of short stories, all set in California. Romance and forbidden love are key themes throughout, and though each story stands alone, many refer to previous events and characters.

    Gertrude Atherton (1857-1948) was an American novelist, short story writer and early feminist. Born in California, Gertrude attended schools in California and Kentucky and became widely read. She married George H.B. Atherton in 1876, and lived with him and his mother in San Francisco, where they had two children. Atherton struggled with married life, her husband did not support her writing ambitions and Gertrude found life as a wife and mother stifling. When her husband died at sea in 1887, Atherton felt free to pursue her burgeoning career as an author and went on to publish over 50 novels. She is best known for her California series of novels which explored the social history of California and included popular works such as ‘The Californians’ and the controversial ‘Black Oxen’ which was adapted into a silent movie in 1923. Feminist themes and strong female characters are common in her novels. She died in San Francisco in 1948.

    First published in 1914, ‘A People’s Man’ by popular author E. Phillips Oppenheim follows the story of a revolutionary politician named Maraton. Having had great success in America, he returns to England from Chicago and is intent upon a series of radical strikes to ensure a fairer distribution of wealth. Nothing is ever so simple however, and Maraton soon finds himself besieged by opposing forces.

    E. Phillips Oppenheim (1866-1946) was a hugely prolific and highly popular British author of novels and short stories. Born in Tottenham, London, Oppenheim left school as a teenager and worked for his leather-merchant father for 20 years prior to launching his literary career. Oppenheim published five novels under the pseudonym ‘Anthony Partridge’ before establishing his reputation as a writer under his own name. An internationally successful author, Oppenheim’s stories revolved mainly around glamourous characters, luxurious settings, and themes of espionage, suspense, and crime. He is widely regarded as one of the earliest pioneers of the thriller and spy-fiction genre as it is recognised today. Oppenheim’s incredible literary success meant that his own life soon began to mirror that of his opulent characters. He held lavish, Gatsby-style parties at his French Villa and was rumoured to have had frequent love affairs aboard his luxury yacht. Oppenheim’s success earned him the cover of Time magazine in 1927. Some of his most well-known novels include ‘The Great Impersonation’, ‘The Long Arm of Mannister’ and ‘The Moving Finger’.

    Leo Tolstoy’s ‘Sevastopol Sketches’ is a series of three semi-autobiographical short stories which are based on his own recollections and experiences of the Crimean War. As a young artillery officer, Tolstoy was present at Sevastopol – the city under intense siege during the war, and his experiences of the grim situation are retold here in gruesome detail. The horrors and realities of war are laid bare as Tolstoy contrasts the heroism of soldiers with the futility of war. Undoubtedly an influence for his later epic ‘War and Peace’, ‘Sevastopol Sketches’ is an important novel in the timeline of Tolstoy’s work.

    Leo Tolstoy (1828-1910) was a Russian author, widely regarded as one of the world’s greatest novelists. His most famous novels include the epic ‘War and Peace’ and the tragic ‘Anna Karenina’. His work also includes several short stories and a semi-autobiographical trilogy which included his own recollections of the Crimean War in ‘Sevastopol Sketches’. He had a spiritual awakening in the 1870s, and became an ardent pacifist, incorporating this into his work ‘The Kingdom of God is Within You’ which is said to have had a profound impact on the non-violent resistance of Mahatma Gandhi. Contemporaries and admirers of his work included Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Anton Chekhov, and Gustave Flaubert. Tolstoy died in 1910 aged 82, leaving behind an incredible literary legacy.
