Mushe of Aggel Inghilene (6th cent.) [Syr. Orth.]

Translator of Cyril of Alexandria’s Glaphyra and of the History of Joseph and Aseneth (incorporated into Pseudo-Zacharias’s Ecclesiastical History, I.6). Both translations are accompanied by letters where Mushe explains something of the circumstances of his work and his (then) novel practice of translating Greek biblical citations, rather than adapting them to the Peshitta.
