Aramaic Studies

Editors-in-Chief: Willem F. Smelik and Aaron Michael Butts
Aramaic Studies: the leading journal for Aramaic language and literature.

The journal brings all aspects of the various forms of Aramaic and their literatures together to help shape the field of Aramaic Studies.

The journal, which has been the main platform for Targum and Peshitta Studies for some time, is now also the main outlet for the study of all Aramaic dialects, including the language and literatures of Old Aramaic, Achaemenid Aramaic, Palmyrene, Nabataean, Qumran Aramaic, Mandaic, Syriac, Rabbinic Aramaic, and Neo-Aramaic.

Aramaic Studies seeks contributions of a linguistic, literary, exegetical or theological nature for any of the dialects and periods involved, from detailed grammatical work to narrative analysis, from short notes to fundamental research. Reviews, seminars, conference proceedings, and bibliographical surveys are also featured. All contributions submitted to Aramaic Studies are subjected to peer review.

While almost every script of the relevant languages can be printed, Aramaic Studies encourages its authors to provide modern translations of quotations in any of these languages for the benefit of a wide readership, including biblical exegetes and historians whose field of expertise is not Aramaic.

The bibliographic section is sustained by the Semitic Institute at Kampen and the Peshitta Institute at Leiden.

A Statement on behalf of the publisher and the editorial leadership of Aramaic Studies

Brill and the Editors of Aramaic Studies recently learned that member of the Editorial Board Jan Joosten has been sentenced by a court in France over possession of child pornography. We are deeply shocked by these facts and express our sincere sympathy with all victims and their families. We strongly renounce his abhorrent behavior and have removed Professor Joosten from the Editorial Board with immediate effect.
